New Year, New Goals

I am blessed to say that 2010 had to be one of the best years of my life. I witnessed God do the most amazing things for me and my family. I almost want to say there is now way to top it but I now know that, God was just getting started. He has loads of is store my family this year.

As usually I try to set myself some goals for the year. While I do strive to accomplish them, I promise not to beat myself up if I don’t reach them all. The important thing is that at the end of the year I can look back and honestly say that I tried. The goals I set for myself were all pretty simple and I an happy at where I ended the year. This year I plan to do the same. This morning my husband I were sharing our personal goals with each other and discussing where we felt God would take our family in 2011. I was amazed at what God laid on both of our hearts and feel confident that as a family we can accomplish it all.

Here are just a few of our long and short term goals:

Purchase our first home. I know this seems like a big step but this is this is some thing God revealed to me over the summer this past year and I have faith and confidence that with Gods power and protection He will make it happen.

Help husband complete citizenship. My husband is a native Jamaican who migrated with his family when he was 12. Up to now he has been successful in doing pretty much everything a citizen can do except vote. It has been a desire for Jim to change and this year I want to help him make it happen.

Memorize 52 Bible verses. I have been successfully reading my Bible this year with the exception of a few weeks here and there. Almost finished reading through. I just have never taken the time to memorize scripture so I hope this year will be different.

Be the best mom I can. I know sounds mushy but each day I spend as a mother to a fin loving toddler boy I realize there is much more for me to learn. And I have a lot of learning and growing to do before our baby girl arrives in May.

So nothing too heavy and out of reach bit somethings I am aiming for and looking forward to how God will help me achieve them all.
