New Year’s Resolutions (A Look Back..)

Good evening everyone! Happy New Year! Welcome to 2011! I hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve and Day.

Tonight I wanted to take the time to look back on my resolutions from 2010, and see which ones I kept, and which ones I didn’t. I also wanted to make some for 2011. The 2010 resolutions we posted around the last week of Dec. 2009. Check the original posts out if you want.

Resolution 1: Loose Weight– (FAIL)

Well that didn’t work. I gained probably another 20 pounds last year. I guess that is what married life does to you. I don’t know. So.. I am putting this one back on the list for 2011. I actually went to the gym tonight. We will see what happens.

Resolution 2: Get Connected on a Deeper Level– (Semi-Fail)

Well I have met some more people, and I have actually connected with some on a deeper level. I started playing softball, and naturally as a team you create that bond. I want to grow closer to these guys, and well other people from church, or even work. I will put this back on the list for 2011 as well.

Resolution 3: Serve God More (Semi-Fail)

I actually was a member of the camera team at North Church for a little bit. I also helped out at a soup kitchen, and helped give out winter items to the homeless. I am not trying to pat myself on the back at all. I give God all the glory on that. I do though am going to put this on the list again. Me and my wife are looking to serve together at the church this year.

Resolution 4: Give to Charity ( Semi- Fail)

When the earthquake hit Haiti, I donated money to two different charities. I haven’t donated since then. I have however given money to people in need that I know locally. Again, I am not trying to pat myself on the back. I am putting this on the list again for this year. I want to contribute more

Resolution 5: Become a Better Husband ( Semi-Fail)

Over the last year, I have worked at doing this. I have attended a class, read books, etc. I am putting this one on the list again. I guess there is always need for improvement, due to us not being perfect.

——————–

Those are my resolutions for 2010/2011, but I wanted to add one as well.

Resolution 6: Blog More

I started this blog as a ministry to myself and to other people. I started off writing practically everyday. Life gets in the way sometimes, and I stopped doing that, or even blogging once a week at the most. Well, I want to bring up my game. I have several people who read this blog, and makes me feel good. I like doing this. So yeah.. Look for more to come.

So what are your resolutions this year?

Until next time readers, God Bless!

The Month of Love

Morning readers! The following post is an idea taken from a blog I read. I thought it was a good idea so I wanted to share it.

When most people think of the month of February, they think of Valentine’s Day and love. When people think of Valentine’s Day and love, the month of February is thought of.

Even though I know my wife reads this blog, I want to challenge you my readers to show your significant a random act of love each day. I am going to try to do this. On March 1st I will re-post this and we’ll share what we did to make each day awesome. Also, we’ll share if it helped your relationship/marriage in any way. I don’t care what it is. It could be a handwritten love note, cooked dinner, laundry that day, dishes– whatever you think your significant other would love.

Here is an example of a random act of love I made to propose to my wife in 2008. I met my wife online in Nov. 2004. I proposed by making this Youtube video of some of our memories. She said yes and we got married June 27, 2009!
