My end of year resolutions are simple. In fact I don’t really think of them as being resolutions, and I’ve never made new years resolutions before because I feel like you’re just doomed to fail anyway, but this is a short and sweet list of what I hope for myself for the coming year ahead. I guess these are more goals, things I am aiming for as far as personal growth etc goes. A little list that I can keep handy, short enough to memorise and to tuck a copy into the cover of my bible. A list of prayer points to focus on for me and my heart. This list feels very important to me which I admit is kind of strange since as I said, I’ve never made a list of resolutions (or the like) before and have never felt motivated towards it before either. My lists consists of only three things, and these three things have been clamouring around inside my head for the past few weeks, waiting for me to pay attention. Seems like now is as good a time as any.
(Prov 141:3, Titus 3:2 )
(1 John:4:16, Matt 22:37-39)
(Heb 13:5, Phil 4:6)
My ugly hand-written list now prettified by my husband’s much nicer writing with sepia markers, and taped to my mirror where I will have no choice but to read it at least a few times a day and where it will stay for a little while at least until it sinks into my head. Maybe I should add “clean mirrors more frequently” to the list. Or not. Soft focus is flattering after all.
We are having a super laid back New Years Eve this year. Just our family, a few sparklers when the sun goes down, followed by a decent bedtime for the kids. Originally we were going to go to a friends place or my sisters in laws, but after a week of late nights and early mornings, the kids are just, well, crazy and tired and over the top so staying home seems like the better option.
And now for a little cuteness to end the year. The kittens are four weeks old today and while I have a backlog of photos I want to post up sometime, I took these ones this afternoon.
This little one is my favourite. She is the quietest and snuggliest of the four so she has been getting a lot of camera time lately.
Can you stand the cuteness? ‘Cause I can’t.
