I know I haven't been around much over the past few months, but November and December seem like a complete blur to me. Life just seemed to get out of control. Spencer's seizures and hospital visits increased. We all got a terrible virus that was going around and it took almost three weeks to run it's course through the entire family. I teased my family that instead of the 12 days of Christmas, we had the 21 days of throw-up. (Sorry if that's TMI) The holidays and all of the busyness that surrounds them came. Somehow, blogging just got pushed to the back burner. I hope to do better in the New Year. We won't call it a resolution, but maybe a goal.
I've been thinking about goals over the past few days. I haven't really had time to sit down and write out what I would like my goals for 2009 to be, but a few things are rattling around up in my head. I started reading the Bible through again yesterday, of course beginning in Genesis. The thing that stood out to me most is Satan hasn't changed his method in all the time that has passed since he tricked Eve in the garden. He made her focus on something she didn't have rather than being thankful for what she did have. Oh how he does that still.
This year I want to focus on what God has already blessed me with. I want to take time to enjoy the great things he has placed in my life and thank Him for them. I want to remember with every breath I take, just how good He is.
"Lord, thank you for blessings my life with so many good things. Help me to seek You and your will first in everything in the coming year. Help me remember that You are good."
