Yet another reason I felt this word was so important for me was because I wanted to "renew" my motivation to live a more healthy lifestyle. Every year I say I want to do this and I always start out well but never end well. By the time December rolled around in 2015 I was into a very bad habit of drinking too much caffeine and every time I had a cup of coffee I wanted something sweet to go with it. Not a good habit at all!
|I confess I did have birthday cake today - but no coffee to go with it!|
During our fast, I began a Bible reading plan where I will end up reading the entire Bible this year. The plan I chose was a chronological one - which I have really been enjoying. I've also been reading a great devotional by Beth Moore called "Portraits of Devotion." One more book I've incorporated into my daily reading is a little book called, "God's Guide to Food, Fitness and Faith for Women." So instead of waking up wanting to drink coffee and sweets, I look forward to my daily reading!
Eventually I would like to start exercising and add that to my daily schedule each day. Like I mentioned earlier, my word last year was strength and this year I would like to RENEW my physical strength (and my energy) so I can better care for my daughter.
|Thank goodness for Grandpa - he was the only one who could figure out how to blow up her inflatable guitar!|
RENEW at 42 - that's my motto this year. What about you?
Do you have a word for the year? I would love to hear about it!
|I'm so thankful for this guy who always supports me when I try to better myself!|
|I'm blessed to have such wonderful parents who made my day extra special!|
Have a blessed 2016!
