Friday Five- Resolutions edition ( for the non-resolution-maker)

Well it had to be didn't it, love them or hate them I bet you've been asked about New Year resolutions. So with no more fuss here is this weeks Friday Five from Rev Gals ;

1. Do you make New Year resolutions?
No, but I think if I am honest, I do internally take stock of life periodically. My perpetual resolution each day is to seek God's will and to strive to be an instrument of God's will in all I think, say and do.
2. Is this something you take seriously, or is it a bit of fun?
Although the goal is serious, I don't take myself too seriously.
3. Share one goal for 2008.
Hard to choose- I could say survive CPE and endorsement interviews, try not to cry that my oldest will celebrate her Sweet 16, and youngest will get confirmed. But I think, the best answer is that I continue to try and do #1.
4. Money is no barrier, share one wild/impossible dream for 2008
Achieve world peace and end world hunger- any amount of money would be worth it. But a backup plan would be to do all of the things in the song, "Live Like You Were Dying" ( I am not a country music fan, and I am not in poor health, but it just speaks to me, with the adjustment that I am female and not male). Although most of the things in this song do not require money.

5. Someone wants to publish a story of your year in 2008, what will the title of that book be?
Walking by Faith

Good play! And good final choice on #3 (trying not to cry at such momentous milestones for your kids would probably be futile, so roll with it).

I'm with you about not crying when our children reach those milestones--my baby is graduating from high school this year! Then the empty nest. . . .

Great title for a book!

Jan, that IS a great title for a book- you should write it- I will buy it! Hot Cup, if money is no object, I can do whatever I want and yes, it would include the bull riding. And if I was really rich, paparazzi would capture it all. But I guess it would be a little over the top for a Lutheran.
