Bye bye 2012 and Hello 2013

I read a facebook status today that said today the movie 2012 is officially a comedy. I had to laugh, I've never put any weight on the whole 2012 theory but I will admit I held my breath a little 12/21/12 at 11:59 pm, thankfully we are all here and another year awaits us. I'm a junkie for New Years resolutions and fresh slates, it feels good to know that I can start over and change some habits and behaviors with a new year beginning. I'm also reminded that His mercies are new every morning and that the fresh slate is available to me everyday, but it does feel especially good the first day of a new year. So, here are a few of my new years resolutions. You may notice that none of these include weight. First.Time.Ever. Unfortunately its not because I don't need to lose weight I just decided not to make it a resolution. So there...ha!

2013 Resolutions....{drum roll please}
  • Give more (specifically to the church)--I've noticed that I do very poorly here and really want to restructure my (our) spending be able to give more to our church and various mission projects that I love
  • Eat out less and Cook at home more (this may help with the weight and the spending : ))
  • Cook more in my crockpot! Suggestions welcome. I love when I do use my crockpot but I don't do it very often. This year that will change
  • Find room in my day for some sort of exercise. Elliptical, walking, videos, dancing with the kids (that counts, right) whatever, just exercise
  • Do more furniture, sewing and crafting this year. Maybe even start an etsy shiop or facebook page, that would be fun!
I pray that this New Year is a blessed year. Despite everything around me, the chaos and uncertainty of everything all around I pray to have peace and calm despite it all. I pray that I will be a blessing to my husbands, kids, family and friends. I pray for safety and continued health over my family. I pray that we will draw closer to God and Him to us!

Happy New Year!
