December 31

As 2007 comes to an end my eyes and heart prepare for 2008.

I was reading a blog the other day where the lady posted her goals so that she would be accountable and it was in writing. Hence, I am now doing the same. I would like to do the following in 2008:

1. Laugh each day
2. Prayer journal
3. Daily Devotions
4. Scrapbooking (go scrapbooking at least 4 times in 2008)
5. Read one book per month
6. Continue to work out a min. of 3 times per week
7. No museum drawers
8. Family vacation
9. Continue to be part of the ladies Bible Study at church and make it a priority
10. Clean out the garage
11. Run/jog in at least one 5K

Rowing along

Today is the 30th of December 2007. We have a family blog and I have decided to start a personal blog where I can journal my thoughts, prayers, praises and faith.

Why is it entitled, "Rowing along"? My mother has always conveyed to me that it takes two to row. What does this mean? She is not communicating actual rowing of a boat down a river or canal, but rather relationships. Our relationships with our friends, co-workers, spouses and children...if one person is doing all the communication (rowing) the relationship will not make the journey of takes two...give and take.

Similarly, our Lord, waits for us to come to him and commune. He is waiting for us to sit and be still to hear His still small voice.
