New Years Resolution's

       I'm back from our trip to go see the Narwold side of the family for Christmas!
     The Drive to Wisconsin was about 7 1/2 hours with stops. This hungry pregnant lady had to stop a couple times for food or other things. ;) I'm 17 weeks along in my pregnancy now, and I'm still as hungry as ever! ;)
     The past couple days, I've been seeing lots of posts about New Years Resolution's. I've never been much into resolutions, but this year my husband and I decided to do things differently. I believe my husband got this idea from his brother, but it's great nonetheless, and I'd encourage ya'll to do the same.
     Talk to your spouse/Parents/siblings about everything God's done for you this past year. Talk about the good, the bad, and the things that you think you can work on this next year. Talk about your weakness's this past year, and how you can learn from them. Talk about how God gave you strength in the midst of trails. Talk about all the good that's come out of 2015. Talk about goals this year that you feel like God would want you to accomplish. 
     Start small... don't go big... like, become president of the United States. ;) Start out with something you think you'll be able to handle, like, memorize 1 Bible Verse a week; Or, resolve to watch less T.V./movies; Or, read 5 books about (Insert subject) by the end of this year. I know how it tends to go when you resolve to do something, and you do great in the beginning, but by the end of the year, it's kind of dissolved.
     This year, let's think on Psalm 90:12, "So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." I'd like more wisdom this year, wouldn't ya'll?!
     This year has been filled with much excitement, love, joy, peace, and laughter. However, it's also been filled with many tears, trials, tribulation, and sadness. Don't get me wrong, this year has been amazing!... but, I still struggled with things just like everyone else. I struggled with trusting God... trusting that God would bless us with children; Trusting God that I wouldn't have a miscarriage; trusting God that He already had a plan, and that He's sovereign and in control of everything!
     This year has been filled with many wonderful adventures with my amazing husband! I don't know how God does it, but He gave me the best man I could've ever asked for! Marriage has been very humbling for me, and I'm thankful for a man who sticks by my side, even when I'm a not-so-nice person. ;) The journey for me to go from daughter/wife/mom in the same year has been awesome, and it's been such a joy for me to see everything Gods done in my lief.
     So, what are your resolutions for this year?

Just for laughs: I resolve this year to have a baby! ;)
