Life in 2011

I'm happy to say that so far this year has been great! haha I am over all just feeling good about the year, my goals, and my life. I wanted to note that when I wrote my goals originally, I said "I want to ... blahblah" after I re-read it I decided to say "I am going to.." and I truly feel that I will. My dieting/exercising is just starting and it can be a little tough on me sometimes, but I know it's just the beginning and I know I won't give up. I am loving doing the "a frame a day picture challenge" which you can follow me through my journey here. What I would like to add to my goals is that I am doing a read through the Bible in a year layout, so far so good but I am really excited about this! I love that this year is all about growing for me and just the constant time with God every morning in pray, devotional, and his word starts my day off so much better! In keeping with my new transformed attitude, I decided that I wanted to be a part of Project Gratitude  so once every night for a year I am going to write down one thing I am thankful for either big or small it's simply another thing to help me reflect on my life and all the things I have to be thankful for, even on the rough days. If you click the link it will bring you to Mrs.RollerCoasters blog she is an awesome blogger and I thoroughly enjoy her stuff, when I read about her project I knew I had to become a part of it!

Day One: I am thankful for my husband, and his support and encouragement through everything. Even when he doesn't always understand he is my number one fan and very best friend.

Lastly, in keeping with the love I have for my sweet sailor man, I was reading a recent post by one of my fav bloggers over at Faith and Deployment in which she shared this..

I instantly felt so moved and convicted, but hopeful! I know that I do not love in all these ten ways but it is my goal that in my changing and growing faith I will be able to fully love this way. I instantly emailed this to my husband and told him that I hope that I can fully love him this way. What an inspiration this is. There is no greater love then the love we have from Christ, and it is my hope that in my goal to being more Christ like, I love in these same ways! 1 John4:19 "We love because he first loved us" has been on my heart the last few days and I think this encouraged me even more!

Sorry this post was kind of all over the place, I am so exhausted tonight!
So I'll leave you with this picture from my recent visit with my hubs
boy do I love that man <3
