Welcome My Friend!

Hooray!! Welcome 2010!
It is a brand new year and I am extremely grateful for another day, another week, another month or another year to learn, grow and experience life.
What a gift to be given!
My thoughts have been pondering about my life this past week and to be honest, I really didn't have any new goals to set. I am currently busy with the current ones I am working on. Doesn't seem to make sense to throw a few more on the list, so I am happy and content with the life I am currently living.
One thing I have notitced, is that a song has been stuck in my head this last little bit. I even heard it on the 2010 A Brand New Year DVD for the Strength of Youth. I knew that a message was trying to be conveyed, and frankly, I LOVE it!
So for my new years resolution for the year of 2010, I leave you with the song in my head because I know that this is where my thoughts are going to be for the next year. Line upon line, precept upon precept!
More Holiness Give Me

(Philip Paul Bliss, 1838-1876)

More holiness give me, More strivings within,

More patience in suff'ring, More sorrow for sin,

More faith in my Savior, More sense of his care,

More joy in his service, More purpose in prayer.

More gratitude give me, More trust in the Lord,

More pride in his glory, More hope in his word,

More tears for his sorrows, More pain at his grief,

More meekness in trial, More praise for relief.

Happy New Year My Friend! May 2010 bring great joy, learning and progress!

Perfect Goal! One of my three goals (I've learned to pace myself) is to be more Christ Like which seems to go along with this beautiful song.

Have a great day.

I love your new header and I love the song too!! Definately one of my favorites :D That is a wonderful goal for the year...and really for life.

Hope your year is starting off with a fabulous bang! Happy New Year!

P.S. About the funding for the dance - It was a 5 Stake Dance - our Stake was in charge but with 5 Stakes alot of money went in the pot and probably the food was the costliest thing.
