I usually write a blog post sharing my new year’s resolutions. I’m learning that some goals reappear each year, and that is as it should be. There are some things we must do always; each day, each month, each year.
Read. Read my Bible. Read good books. Think good thoughts. I finished using the Robert Murray M’Cheyene Bible reading schedule last year, and I loved it. I’m using it again this year. I have also started the year off with these books:
41: A Portrait of my Father by George W. Bush – so far, it’s very good.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. – It’s too early for me to tell whether I like this one or not.
I’m also slowly reading a book called The Attributes of God by A. W. Pink. – It’s a lot to absorb, but I’m enjoying it.
Pray. I struggle to pray. It is work, but it is the best work. I must do more of this in 2015.
Write. Write in my journal. Write on my blog. Write for publication. Writing isn’t a business for me, since I don’t make my living doing it, and yet, it is my business. It’s my therapy, my single creative outlet, and the highlight of my day.
Exercise. I have to keep pushing myself. I walked/ran over 60 miles from June to November. I should have (and could have) done more. Whether it’s aerobics DVDs, or walking in God’s lovely creation, I need to move.
Learn. I never want to stop learning in 2015 or any year. There is so much to learn! Last year I learned to knit (though I’m not good at it). This year, maybe crochet? I am also learning photography – for fun – and I’m learning to use Photoshop Elements, a photo editing program.
And that’s it. It doesn’t seem like much, but I bet it will take me all year to accomplish it. 🙂
