Happy New Year 2017! As 2016 is coming to a close and as we get ready to welcome 2017, let’s trust that God is there for us. Just as He was there for us this past year, in the sunshine and cloudy days. Giving our Lord thanks for everything that drew us closer to Him.
How exciting to once again turn another page of our lives into a new chapter. A new year marks a fresh, new start. This is the time to renew ourselves and have goals to become better. We need to trust that God is there for us to help and achieve all our goals and resolutions.
Let’s allow God to encourage, teach, correct and guide us through every step of our lives. We can’t achieve anything with our own strength. However, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Philippians 4:13
It is a perfect time to reflect on the good, not the bad. We need to enjoy what we have, not what we don’t. To appreciate only what we can control, not stress over what is out of our reach. To remember all the good times, none of the bad.
In addition, I invite you to start within ourselves. I believe in order to love others, we need to love ourselves. My goal is to focus MORE on myself and practice taking better care of myself and my health. Life is so busy with our kids, husbands and many times we leave ourselves last or just let ourselves go altogether. Let’s focus on taking care of ourselves from head to toe! Taking better care of ourselves makes us better Mamas and Wives!
My New Year’s Resolutions and in everyday life are the following:
- Pray More
- Love More
- Appreciate More
- Live More
- Worry Less
What are your goals for this new year. Do you make new year’s resolutions?
From my family to yours, I wish you happiness and health for this new year.
