just when i am feeling my most vulnerable and raw, God reaches down to sooth me and give me peace.

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’

“So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
Numbers 6:22-27

i am finally sitting down to think about my goals for the new year. what do i want to have accomplished by 2013. here is what i am currently thinking about:

-take a family vacation to an exotic location, possibly europe
-read a book (chapter of a book) to the boys each night and teach them all the traditional card games
-become pregnant or start the adoption process
-mentor a troubled kid once a week
-become fit and strong by working out 3 times a week consistently (a side benefit will be that i will reach my goal weight of 110-115)
-run a half-marathon in under 2 hours (not walk-run)
-replace my wardrobe with 50s style clothing
-start saving the money we were spending on debt (school loans, car loans, credit card) for retirement [$10,000-$20,000 minimum]
-find a job that makes me happy and content
-find a location for everything in our house and get rid of the clutter (a side benefit will be that we will no longer have to pay for a housecleaner)
-write a bible study and become published
-stop procrastinating and spend less time on the computer

what do you want to accomplish this year?
