I've posted a lot today. I looked back over 2005. I thought about 2006. I think I'll end my ponderings with my desires for 2006. I believe God gives us desires and then we have our own of course. I'm praying that God's desires and my own desires line up.
What do I desire for 2006?
1. I desire to draw closer to God and develop a deeper, abiding faith in him. I want to know him and love him with abandon. I want to continue to purge the religiousness and focus only on the person Jesus Christ.
2. I desire more intimacy with Bob. I feel like we've recently reached some new levels in our marriage and I'm hoping to continue building on the love and trust we have for each other. I want to love him for HIM and enjoy each other even more.
3. I desire stronger relationships with each of my children. I'm enjoying the openess and sharing they have begun to do more of and I'm hoping to continue to become a mom that is easy and safe to share even the most personal of thoughts with.
4. I desire to live life more fully and with less inhibition. I want to laugh, dance, write, photograph, and play music throughout 2006. I want to celebrate life and LIFE more. I want to delight in each experience even the tiniest of moments. I desire more creativity and I want to revel in the creativity of my Creator. I want to trust God to bring me through the hard times and focus more on the blessings in my life.
These desires will help me head in the right direction with my goals for 2006. I'll have to finish those tomorrow as I am very tired tonight and the pot of chili is smelling yummy. I think I'll go enjoy a bowl and then snuggle up on the couch.
What do you desire in 2006? If you blog about it, leave a comment so I can read it.
