When 2009 came, I was not prepared and I was not looking forward to it. Thankfully, the year passed quickly and I have little recollection of it all. In fact, I only wrote in my journal 8 times in 2009 and most of that was in the past 3 months. Last year I had a goal of being a better encourager and being more merciful. I was successful at accomplishing those goals and will continue to focus on godly character throughout my lifetime.
As usual the new year has taken me by surprise so I don’t yet know what I will focus on for 2010, nor have I determined the theme for 2009. I will say it ended on a good note. I met my little nephew over Christmas. He’s almost two and is too cute for his own good. He does and says cute things and has a “man strut” you wouldn’t believe. He doesn’t know what to think about me, but I’ll win him over in time. I also got to spend some good time with family in Arkansas. We took our first family picture since we’ve all had children and Nathan and I went on a double date with my brother and his wife.
We saw Avatar in 3-D and we really liked it. We were wowed by the special effects and we continue to bring up the storyline. It wasn’t a complex story, but it definitely makes you think about real life parallels. Neither of us had ever seen a 3-D movie and this was an awesome first time. From the previews, I’m guessing 2010 will be a year full of 3-D movies. I feel good about this coming year and I look forward to all God has in store.
Happy New Year!
