The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form
of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this, always to
regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed
upon my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should
not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like
Aaron's rod, with flowers.
-- Helen Keller (1880-1968) American Writer
In short. As far as resolutions go, many are like wishes that float away like blowing bubbles and dissipate quickly. So, I have learned the gift of looking into each moment with a smile and finding joy no matter what. That is the greatest gift of 2007, to find joy when sorrow was quite present. Joy is solid and true and to see that and lean into faith and just trust. This year it would be amazing to make a lifestyle change of extraordinary! To come up alongside God and do something to give back to him. To wish Him a good day, to be grateful. To live a life that matters and remove selfishness and to give the world a big warm hug and a soft place in a heart to land in encouragement. To give back and be part of a greater cause and see God in the midst. It would be so very amazing to be able to look back and see that God worked through this soul as a vessel to make others smile. It be so great to look back at 2008 and see picture images of where time was cherished even in the most insignificant of moments and to truly give him the Glory and send him a big ole blow kiss daily. Peyton Grace and I always make up new blow kisses. We have done this since she was quite young. We have never done one to give to God. That is my new years resolution to find a way to live my life in a way that is constantly sending him sweet Peyton Angel Grace kind of blow kisses with each breath He gives me.
Oh yes...and to work out, eat right, bring those quite dreams to pass, laugh more, but most importantly, get Gods word so written on my heart that those thin pages in that sweet leather bible of mine become even thinner and more highlighted than they were created! Wouldn't that be so great?Amen!
Wishing you more blessings than you can hold and so many giggles that it makes your cheeks hurt!
