Here’s to a brand new year!

A new year … new resolutions. I know that I’ve been gone for a while and I apologize. I’ve been thinking about a lot lately and not really sure how to put what I’m thinking into words. When I get frustrated I tend to shut myself off. I’ve neglected my friendships and my health and my sanity really. I mean, I can’t get into a better frame of mind wallowing in self pity now can I!?!

Anyway, this year I’m starting off the year right … doing Beth Moore’s Jesus: 90 Days With The One And Only. Each evening before heading to bed I will do my daily reading and reflection. I know that I’m lazy and will tend to push things off so instead of making it a part of my morning routine I’m going to keep the book by my bed for evening work. I almost always read in bed before I fall asleep so this should work.

ARGH. My first test of patience in the new year … this isn’t going to be an easy year, is it? I just wrote out another three paragraphs and tried to update and it lost it all. WordPress has been crappy today so I should have figured this would happen and copied the text just in case. But you know what’s NOT fun. Always thinking the worst and then preparing for it. So, I tried to just have faith. It’s not working. Hopefully this devotional I’m doing is going to work. Maybe if I just focus on Him then He will take care of the rest. God I sure hope so. I am so overwhelmed with hate in my life right now. Hate at everything. People on the road. The internet’s functionality. My financial situation. Everything.

So here’s to a brand new year, right!?! I’m headed out tonight to watch the Gators kick butt in the SugarBowl! Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday and that everyone has a prosperous new year! God bless!

  1. I’m glad to see you’re back and I’m sorry you’re having a hard time. I’ve been dealing with a lot of anger myself lately and it’s a difficult emotion. It’s so hard to control and then you get angry at yourself for feeling that way and it just spirals on. I hope you find some comfort and ways to work through it (and please share if you do, goodness knows I need it)

    1. THANKS! Yes, it’s just a funk I’m in and I’m sure it will pass. 2010 will bring bigger and better things I just know it! The only thing I can do is constantly remind myself that it could be worse. I know that sounds morbid but it’s the only thing that seems to check me and help me refocus on what’s truly important in life. As I come across any more things I’ll be sure to pass them along! 🙂 God bless!
