a fresh start

i always wonder, why do we wait til january 1 to try to make a fresh start? shouldn't each day be that way? oh well.. i'm gonna jump on the resolution train and see how far it goes.
-i want to be a happier person. i'm so negative all the time, i've taught myself (from experience) to expect the worst from everyone... i need to learn to 'brush it off'
-i want to be a better mom. i've learned NOT to pray for patience.. not gonna go there again... but, i do want to be... lighter. does that make sense?
-i want to learn to speak spanish this year. i know, right??
-of course, old faithful, lose 15 pounds...
-i want to start reading my Bible on a regular basis.. to listen more for God's whisper.. find a church... that's bible based...
-i want to read more non-fiction, and actually learn something..
-i've been praying for spiritual and scriptural discernment. that would be neat...
-better wife, all-around... speaks for itself...
-i want to LIVE my life... not just get watch it go by...
-last, but not least... i'm banning myself from ordering online.. too much... well, every once in a while is ok...
just sayin...

you are so funny.

i want to find a church too. no one knows that i have been out of church since August (except my husband & except the ppl i was going to church with! HA!). Everyone else would be in shock b/c i've been such a church girl for so long! Anyway - kinda don't know what to do about that. Kinda sick of church as is. At the same time i miss it. Bleh...

like your other ones. You make me laugh!

yes. church is a sore subject for me. i've seen too much crap... kinda overrides the little good i've found...

Hey Mel, don't feel bad, I haven't been to church in a year. Not that there aren't any, I just don't understand what they are saying, literally!!! The church in Acts 2 was basically prayer and praising at the peoples home!
