Less of, more of


I used to set resolutions I would never keep, that seems to be more common than completion for most folks. This year the idea of less junk, more quality seems relevant to all areas. Instead of reality shows, how about reality living? Fewer cookies, more vegetables. More exercising…just because it feels good and is healthy…not just to lose weight. Dedicated time for what really matters to us, not wishing later we’d made the committment.

Less of, more of.  It applies to anything I can think of.

Do you plan for the new year? What are your goals this year?

Committed to a life of purpose. Learning to live abundantly. Embracing creativity. Questioning. Delighting in the comforts of home and family. Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be. Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time. Psalm 89:11a“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”

  1. Hi Christa,
    I used to plan out every little detail of my life. I wasn’t married long when my husband made it clear he did not want to be scheduled into my day planner.
    Now, after 24 years of marriage I’ve learned that it’s okay to have ideas, and even goals, but I need to be led of the Holy Spirit, keep my priority of husband and family first, and realize that woe is me if I lean on my own understanding.
    God’s blessings to you in 2010,
