Happy New Year!

Hello to all and Happy New Year! I pray that you had a wonderful holiday season and are having an even better 2009.

As he new year is now upon us, many of us are reflecting on goals, aspirations and New Year's resolutions. We may be tempted to focus on fitness, business, personal, or financial goals during this time. I know I certainly am! (especially with those 20 lbs I want to lose) Though all of those goals are an important part of our lives, the Lord constantly encourages us to put Him and spiritual goals first. Ask Him about how you can be the mom, wife, sister, niece and friend that the Lord calls you to be. Through prayer and the study of the word, we can all find the balance and peace that He wants us to have as we embark upon all that we are called to do. What spiritual goals will you set for yourself this year? Write them down in a journal or somewhere you visit often. Share your goals with a close friend, family member or prayer partner so that you can ask each other about them once in a while. Focusing on the spiritual first will allow everything else to fall into place, making for a happier and more fulfilled 2009!

May the Lord lead your hearts into God's love and Christ's patience.
2 Thessalonians 3:3 (NCV)
