“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” ~ Colossians 3:17

It seems nearly impossible that 2012 is coming to a close.  When I sat down two years ago to begin blogging, I had no idea what sort of journey was ahead of me.  It has certainly been an unexpected sort of adventure.

And while I haven’t blogged as much in the past two months as I would like, I am thankful to have the opportunity to share my thoughts.

Over the past several days, I have spent a lot of time thinking about how I approach the days and weeks I have been given.  Often with work, I spend time creating detailed to-do lists, with specific goals that I want to accomplish.  But for regular life, other than chores and housework, I don’t really seem to do anything like this.  I just kind of let my days slide by, getting the “important” things done, but not really putting any concerted effort into other things I value.

And as a result, I spend countless hours frittering my time away on meaningless things (yes, Pinterest, I’m looking at you).

My goal for 2013 is to dedicate time to some of the pursuits I’ve allowed to slip by the wayside.  Not a lot of time – for some things, maybe just 10-15 minutes per day during the week.  While that may not sound like much, as the end of the year it will be hours and hours, much more than what I accomplished this past year.

I hope your year is coming to a peaceful close and that you are enjoying time with family and friends.  As you look to setting resolutions for 2013, I encourage you to make some small ones.  Often they can make the biggest difference.
