looking toward a new year

my 2013 goals:

1} complete reading through the Bible in a year
2} turn the guestroom into a nursery
3} write 20 poems this year

i find when i make fewer goals i tend to meet them. last year i met all my goals except for reading through the bible in a year. this year my goals are simple–finish reading straightthrough the bible, turn our guestroom into a nursery (yay!), and to write 20 poems. I’ve been taking a much needed writing break so I wasn’t sure about making a writing goal at all for myself this year but I figured that it never hurts to have something to aim for.

something i would also like to start this year is recording my prayers for the year–i think it would be neat to go back and see how God answered what weighed on my heart each year. and really the things that i would most like to happen this year are things i can’t resolve or make goals to achieve–they are completely in God’s hands.

my 2013 prayers:

1} for bryan to find a full-time job
2} for a safe and healthy pregnancy and delivery of our second-born
3} for a smooth and happy transition from family of 2 to family of 3
4} for God to bless and grow our church, and the small group we lead

what are your resolutions/goals this year? do you have anything i can pray for you about this coming year? (feel free to email me at thisquiethour/gmail/com if it is too private to share here)

happy new year!

  1. Beautiful post and prayers. I love the idea of writing down prayers for the new year and then going back to see how God answered those prayers. What an amazing idea!!!
