A Merry SITSmas!

What is SITS for all those who don't know...Curious? Check it out here.



This is me. Jessie.

Anyway, 2009 is almost calling it closing time, and I decided to make end of year resolutions this year instead of New Years' resolutions. That way I only have a few weeks to start doing the things I need to do instead of 52 weeks to procrastinate doing those things and then forgetting all about them.

Here's what's on my short list. I make short lists so I don't feel like a failure when they don't get completed.

1. Practice banjo daily. Even 15 minutes is awesome!
2. Pray more. ("praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints" Eph. 6:18)
3. Make time for the creative juices to actually flow out: poetry, art, music, sewing, etc.
4. Not be drunk on wine but be filled with the Spirit. (just FYI, I don't get drunk on wine ever...this is also from Ephesians)
5. Don't start any new books until I've finished the ones I'm currently reading. (so hard, so hard to do)

That's it. My end of year resolutions.

  1. Dropping by from SITS.

    What do you think of the L'Engle book you're reading? And what's next on your reading list once you finish up the 3 listed on your bookshelf?

  5. I love the banjo. My dad used to play the dulcimer and I am so sentimental about any bluegrass music whatsoever. Merry SITSmas!

  6. I like your list theory! I'm very bad about not finishing up on a book before picking up another. I have three going right now. Merry SITSmas!

  11. I like the idea of an "end of year" resolution-- taking stock of what you did, instead of what you wanted to but didn't.

    Merry SITSmas!
