A New Year

2010 was a year full of changes both good and bad. I've been thinking about the new year and all the changes that will hopefully come with it.  I am praying that I find a job for the up coming school year.  Being unemployed this past year has been hard for us, but on the up side we have learned to save and spend more wisely.  I have found a hobby in couponing and being frugal.
I do however believe that this was God's plan for me.  This has been a big year for everyone especially Nathan, he has moved and started Kindergarten which is a big deal when you're five years old. ;)  I feel like God wanted me to be more available for Nathan during this time of change.  I have gotten to take him to school pick him up, go to his school parties, and I have spent numerous hours playing Lego's and trains, and cuddling up on the couch with the sweetest little boy in the world.

Now onto those "goals" (resolution just sounds icky).
1.)  Become a more spiritual person.  I want to read the whole Bible this year, attend Sunday morning church more, and just get closer to God.
2.) Read a book a month.
3.) Become a healthier person.  This includes loosing weight, exercising, drinking water rather than coke, and making healthier choices when it comes to food.
4.) Be a better blogger.
5.) Get organized!

Here are some pictures from 2010.

I am looking forward to see what God has in store for us for the New Year and I pray that he surrounds each of you with love and prosperity in the year to come. 

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
