Happy New Year 2008!!!!!

As I enter into the next year and leave the old one behind I have to write down my goals for 2008. 2007 was a very hard year but also a very blessed year. To read about some of my 2007 highlights click on this post. Graduations, births, weddings and buying a home made 2007 a stellar year. But nothing could have been accomplished, and I mean nothing without the grace and favor of God in my life. Without God 2007 could have been one of my worst years to date!

For my family and for me 2007 was the manifestation of 3 bible scriptures:

  1. Philippians 4:19 – And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
  2. Isaiah 54:17 – No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me,ā€ Says the LORD.
  3. Romans 8:28 – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

So to God I give all the glory and all of the honor, because only He is worthy!
Now for my 2008 Goals:

  1. Read entire bible in one year. [http://www.purposedrivenlife.com/]
  2. Go back to school.
  3. Start process for buying second house.
  4. Complete Family Development Credential course and receive certificate.
  5. Join at least 3 professional organizations. 1 must be a national organization.
  6. Join Toastmasters. I have a fear of public speaking in front of large crowds…
  7. Lose weight. I wont put a number of pounds now, I am still thinking about that!
  8. Change hair. I have contemplated twisting it for 2 years! I will do it in’08’!
  9. Actively & regularly work on the book I started writing in early 2007!
  10. Travel more! I see another cruise in my future!
  11. Open another bank savings account.

So Ladies and Gentlemen, there you have it, my top 11 things that I WILL do or start in 2008! And since I wrote it on my blog it helps me stay accountable so I will post regular updates!
I thank all of you who have supported (By visiting and commenting) my blog since I started in October of 2007. I loved meeting you all and look forward to forming new blog relationships and strengthening old blog relationships in 2008!
I pray that you receive all the blessings that God has for you and yours in 2008!

    Thanks for sharing these verses. I love all the three of them- they give me more than comfort, they encourage me to go on. Happy New Year! I hope you can accomplish the things you set -and much more- in 2008.
