One Day at a Time in 2009

Happy new year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. Today was our first day to get back into the swing of things. Welcome back to reality and alarm clocks. Ugh. Got up early to take my daughter to speech therapy. Apparently, when she first got there, she wouldn't talk to her therapist. She was too tired to talk, she said. Glad I got up for that. It seems like speaking would be an important part of speech therapy!

So, I'm on the "one day at a time" plan in '09. I am trying to enjoy the moment and live in the now. Focus on what God is doing in my life today, this very minute and not on what might happen 3 months from now, 6 months from now, etc. I love this familiar verse about not worrying about tomorrow. This translation from the message is great:

Matthew 6:34 (The Message)
"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes."

So, I guess that's one of my resolutions. The rest are the same ones I try for every year: read the Bible more, eat less, exercise more, eat less, pray more, eat get the idea.

Good luck with all of your resolutions. Let me know what they are in the comments. I love to know people are reading this. In the meanwhile, seize the day, friends!

Psalm 118:24 (New International Version)
"This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Hey there - Happy New Year! My husband and I started the Atkins diet this year. . .sort of a New Year's Resolution, sort of we just need to lose a few pounds. The first couple of days were a little rough, but it's going much better now. As for other resolutions, I hope to read through the Chronological Bible this year and spend more time with my husband by scheduling dates and booking babysitters regularly.
