Since the first of the year, I have been hearing about resolutions. I check my FB page, and people are still talking about losing weight, posting pictures of the food they ate on a certain day, being a better person (like they were the devil last year or something), the list goes on. I look at other blogs and talk to people (myself included!!) who are consumed with relationships with people, making sure we make them happy so they will stay and sometimes so they will go. and I don't guess there is anything wrong with any of that, but I guess the focus seems to be wrong. So I really don't do resolutions like I said before but I have been thinking about things that have gone on in my life the past year. It's amazing how pumped up I was at one point, trying to get a book written, thinking, meditation, studying, praying none stop. I don't really know when why or how by the end of last year that stuff either dwindled or completely went away but it did.

Job 8:5-6 - "But if you will seek God earnestly and plead with the Almighty, if you are pure and upright, even now he will rouse himself on your behalf and restore you to your prosperous state."

There is no excuse. I could make up alot though that makes sense to me and would make folks feel sorry for me, but nope. So its time to start fresh again. Maybe it is for you too. Thank you God for loving us so much that even though we tend to forget about you, you never forget us!

I pray you have all had a really good week so far. I normally look forward to Fridays, but this Friday, I will have a 16 year old and I am not sure my brain is ready for that yet. : ) Be blessed my friends and until next time, Lord willing.....


  1. Amen. It's such a blessing that even though we sometimes seem to walk away from God, He never walks away from us!

  2. I am not one for resolutions either because If I don't accomplish what I said I wanted to, then I am a failure in my own eyes. But If all I do is try to better myself then I cannot possibly fail at that.

    I personally can attest to what Job said. All my life we have had ups and downs and when we come on bended knee to bow down before our Lord and ask him for help. He really does listen and help.
