Today, I am absolutely thankful for having parents that are in good health. I am thankful for my mom coming out unscathed from a bad car wreck. I am thankful because God has shown me His faithfulness in caring for my family and loved ones.
Even though I have not written in over a month, there have been several little things that have brought joy to my heart. A couple of weeks ago, I lost one of my favorite earrings, but someone who works at the dining commons found it and gave it back to me. I am grateful for the kindness that people show to me every day; I don’t deserve how good people are to me. As usual, I am also grateful for a caring and loving boyfriend; I am specially grateful for the job he started today.
There are many happenings that can discourage us, but as my Dove wrapper reminded me, happiness is in the heart.
Today I was thankful for being able to attend a humbling service at Keller Park Church, and being reminded that we must not neglect any areas of our spiritual lives, but grow akin to the voice of the Spirit and follow where it leads. I was later blessed to talk with my parents and know that they are always there to remind me to cling to God and encourage me to move forward. I was also extremely thankful for Stephen. I am amazed at how he is able to keep up with me in my awful days. I am incredibly blessed to have a boyfriend who cares for me and who shows that care even in the small pleasures of life. Without the ice cream he got me, I don’t know how I would’ve been motivated to continue knitting my scarf.
As rough as it is to admit, this is the proof that Johnson has left a mark in my life. I believe this to be the first time I write a resolution. It’s not that I have something against them, I simply believed that writing something down did not mean I could or would accomplish it. My beliefs on resolution have not changed, but maybe writing it down would serve as a reminder that I should worry about meeting the goals that I have set before me.
These are my resolutions for the summer:
1. Journal and pray daily
2.Read my Bible.
3. Read a book weekly.
4. Excersise for a minimum of 15 minutes daily.
5. Eat as little meat as possible (beef, chicken, fish, etc).
6. Blog at least three times a week.
7. Hone graphic design skills.
8. Finish the short story I began writing over spring break.
This is where my list of resolutions will end, for now. There are probably many more things that I should think about accomplishing this summer, but these I should give greater priority. I thought of another one:
9. Don’t bite my nails.
