I know many people hate New Year's Resolutions, because they feel they are just setting themselves up for failure.
I, however, love a fresh start and the opportunity to reflect, evaluate and then set goals.
One of my resolutions for this year is to READ.
I love to read. I love it so much that I often avoid reading. I know that when I pick up a book, I will get so involved in it that I won't be able to put it down. Then, schooling, housework, laundry and all my other responsibilities will be neglected until the book is finished. In an effort to solve this problem, I am going to schedule reading time. I'll let you know how it goes.
Do you want to know what's on my bedside table for reading right now?
The Circle Trilogy: Black , Red and White by Ted Dekker (3 separate books)
War and Grace by Don Stephens
Teach Them Diligently by Lou Priolo
I also resolve to read to my children more. My two kiddos love to read, and I often find myself telling them no when they ask me to read to them. I think I am too busy with other duties to read to them. I want to change that this year and spend a lot of time reading to them. I have started a wish list on Amazon of books I plan to purchase for them this year, and we will be taking regular trips to the library this year.
