Well, here it is Saturday morning and I am going to try and finish this blog I started on January 5th. That is an indicator of how my first week of the year has gone...BUSY! My New Year's Resolution to "not give my husband crumbs" is working; which means other things in my life are taking a 'back-seat'! Don't get me wrong, I have worked late this week, but I made an earnest effort to spend more quality time with my husband when I am home. Let's just say I've watched more TV in the first 5 days of the year than I probably did most of 2010! (ha)
As I reflect on what I've learned throughout 2010 I can tell you the number one thing is, no matter how bad it seems, someone always has it worse than I do. Life if FULL of challenges! But it's how you face them and your attitude in the midst of the trial that will sustain you or will make you a winner!
If you take nothing else from this blog today, I hope you will remember, you are the one that determines your destiny. You can either sit and sulk over it .... or you can get up and make something positive out of it! God did not wear a crown of thorns so that we would go through life defeated, but rather so that we could go through life as winners! Remember, if it's too small to pray about then odds are it's too small to worry about!
The attitude in which you welcome in this New Year ...odds are is how it will remain throughout the year! Put your faith in something worthy and not in fear & doubt!
Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he
will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him
