Happy New Year 2011!!!!! AND a Giveaway!!

WOW!  We made it ANOTHER year!  haha

Can you believe it's 2011?  Unbelievable.  It seems strange every year.  I am so excited for this year and can not wait to see what it holds!  I've never been one to conform to what everyone else is doing.  You know that when the new year rolls around what everyone is doing:  making those resolutions!  I hate to put something out there and know that I might not make my goal!  I hate failing!  Soooo, with that said, I am making no resolutions this year!  I am however going to ATTEMPT to make some lifestyle changes.  Does that count?  haha

I am a typical woman with typical desires and those typical desires turn into the typical "resolutions".  As usual, I have to pursue to be a woman of excellence in my entire life!  Work, homelife, marriage, relationships...  I have to get my eating in control.  You notice I didn't say weight...hahaha!  I believe if I can get my eating under control that my weight will  I am going to start another workout regime.  I have to do that to motivate myself.  It's just super hard with my schedule to fit it in all the time.  I have to take time out during the week and cater to my marriage.  I also have to take time out to cater to me once in a while.  I ran myself to death at the end of 2010.  I've got to get creative and figure out how to do that.  I also need to be more diligent with meals.  With our crazy schedule it's hard to get something cooked every evening.  Am I the only one out there that has these issues?  Sometimes I feel like I'm a broken toy all alone in this great big world!  Speaking of being broken and feeling alone...I HAVE to make a major focused push to take time daily to fellowship with my Creator!  The ONE who truly knows me inside and out.  I have neglected that relationship way more than I should.  I hate to admit it.  It hurts me to know I have pushed God to the side many times in my life and only picked it up when I was in great need.  More study time, more prayer time, more focused ministry time!! 

Looks like planning will be a HUGE part of my 2011!  What's your plans for this year?  Would love to hear from some of you!! 

I'll be doing a random draw for a $10 Target Gift Card.  To qualify, all you have to do is leave me a comment and let me know what your great plans are for this great 2011 year!  I'll draw on Friday, January 7th.  Can't wait to hear from my friends!!!

God bless!

This year, I want to focus my attention on God. I want to know Him more. It would be great if he helped me to organize my life and stay balanced!

Happy New Year, my friend! I have great hopes for 2011. 2010 was a rough one for me and for lots of people that I know and love. My plan is to be happy, no matter what comes this year.
Would love to see you sometime! Maybe that can be on our list of 2011 plans!

I'm wanting to get time in with God every day! I so need to do this. Well, I was behind in my Bible reading in the One Year Bible NLT. I'm currently trying to catch up to where I should be and make it happen! I'm determined to spend time with the Lord daily. purposedrivenlife4you at gmail dot com
