Complete in Thee each want supplied,
And no good thing to me denied;
Since Thou my portion, Lord, wilt be,
I ask no more, complete in Thee.

(3rd verse of "Complete In Thee", by Aaron Roberts Wolfe & James Martin Gray)

word for this year...

a friend of mine wrote a post about the word she hopes will characterize the next year of her life and i found it inspiring.  the idea of summing up your year in one word before it has even happened... what a wonderful goal.  i wanted to do this myself, so i thought through various things that i would like to work on this year.  i could copy Janna and go with "patience" cuz i've been sorely lacking in that area.  or i could try for something like "joy" or "peace" both fruits of the Spirit and would be lovely to have more of.  but none of those seemed quite right.  yet once i thought about it, there was one word that just fit...

Daily - occurring, made, or acted upon daily; reckoned by the day


that's how often i should be reading the Word.

i'm only given the grace to deal with each day as it comes, so i will not worry about the next.

i want to lift up my husband in prayer each and every day.

i can be a slacker when it comes to cleaning, so i'm determined to do a little bit each day to avoid it's ability to become overwhelming. 

all 4 of us need to laugh that often.

my sons grow so quickly, i have to stop and enjoy them daily, i must train them up daily, and i must read them the Word of the Lord DAILY!

and so i hope to take the next year of my life, daily.  i have a goal of reading thorugh the Bible in a year and although i have failed on day 1 & 2, i will not stop and wait until next year.  nope, this year i will daily read my Bible, even when i hit the geneologies and the measurments for the tabernacle.  because...

2 Timothy 3:16
"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;"

i'm praying that this year might be slightly less eventful than the past several years.  and yet, that God will work mightily in my life over the next year. 

and so, here we go 2011...
