Sweet 16

by | Jan 18, 2016 | Blog | 0 comments

It is a New Year!  I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions, I do however use it as I time of reflection. I  always have a renewed sense of purpose. I reflect on life, where I am, where I have been and where I am going.

It also helps that at church we always fast during the month of January. We seek the Lord’s guidance for direction for the New Year. I just made a vision board for the first time. The bible states to write the vision and make it plain Habakkuk 2:2 . I completed a vision board on-line versus making an actual board. I looked over my goals for last year, and while I made some progress, I still am a work in progress.

One of the goals that I completed was I finished editing my book. I still have to publish it. My goal was to get it done in 2015. My goal was to run a marathon in last than five hours last year. I did not run any marathons due to injury. My goal was to lose 20 pounds. I lost 10 pounds and gained five or so. I did start my blog and it is still going. So this year I will publish my book, I will run my sub-5 hour marathon. I will loss 20 pounds. I will also continue to work on my relationship with my Jesus. I will also give God, all my goals, because while we may think we have control we don’t. I will dream big, and dream and hope for the impossible. God is all-powerful, and all knowing. With him nothing is impossible Luke 1:37. I wish you all well as you embark on 2016. I wish you all love, peace, and happiness.

Some great moments of 2016- most of them involve sports and running. They are two of my favorites things.
