Midnight marks the ending of one year, and the beginning of a new one. I'll be at home with the kiddos, wearing silly New Year's Eve hats and 2012 sunglasses, drinking sparkling grape juice and playing with sparklers. :)
A few of the ways I'm waving goodbye to 2011 and hello to 2012:
Linking to (in)courage and looking back on 2011: 20 Questions for a New Year's Eve Reflection. I've already begun a new journal, and this is the first entry.
Arming myself with the Word and gaining control of my thoughts, my emotions, and my physical health. I'm determined to start 2012 with a fresh outlook and a healthier lifestyle, and to teach my children to do the same. Reading the Bible dAiLy, as well as "Battlefield of the Mind" and "Look Great, Feel Great: 12 Keys to Enjoying a Healthy Life Now" by Joyce Meyer, and "Reshaping it All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness" by Candace Cameron Bure.
CLEANING HOUSE! Physically AND Spiritually! January marks the beginning of a new year, what better time to begin clearing out the clutter and making room for new, beautiful things? Doing this with the help of Sarah Mae. I bought her eBook months ago and I think it's way past time to put it to good use! (If you've seen my house lately, you understand.)
Looking forward to (in)RL in April 2012! :)
Becoming a child sponsor for Amazima, and hopefully sponsoring a child through Compassion. Praying about these things and feeling confident that God will give me the ability to do so.
and... last, but certainly not least, praying for peace, comfort, happiness, love and joy for all of you in the new year!
