Goals for 2008

Here are some things I am hoping to accomplish in 2008:

Read through the bible in a year - This year my family and I decided to read through the Bible using a One Year Bible. My siblings and I have never done this, and I am really excited. Although it is a real big commitment, we are still going strong.

Grow closer to God - I think this should be a goal for our whole lives. My Dad says that you can ALWAYS be closer to God. One way I am going to do this is by reading through the Bible in a year.

Become a better sister/daughter - No matter how it seems on the blog world, I am not perfect. I mess up a lot and am not the most patient person in the world. This year I hope and pray that I will learn to control my temper and have more patience and self control.

Finish the MANY projects I have started - I have many projects that still need to be finished, believe it or not. They include: knitting a scarf for my sister, finishing crocheting my baby blanket, finish sewing my three-tiered skirt, as well as others which I can't remember.

Work on my attitude - My attitude could use some work as well. This year I'm praying that God would help me to improve my attitude.

Make a cape - I am planning to use some of my Christmas money to make a Narnia-style cape. Mom said it shouldn't be too hard, and, while I still have to find a pattern, we found some deep reddish-purple fabric at Wal-Mart that would work.

Those are all the goals I can think of at the moment, but I will probably add more as the year goes on.

Oh, and I wanted to post a little note about my posting schedule...because of the busyness of the holidays, I have not been posting regularly on Tuesdays and Fridays, but hopefully now that things are calming down I can get back to normal.

Have a blessed year!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
