Goals for 2017

When New Years comes, I look at the coming year and reassess my priorities. It’s been a difficult year. We lost our dog in 2016; I ended up in the emergency room and was out sick for a week on medication; and financial things became tighter. I feel like 2016 had become a blur. I don’t believe in resolutions, but I try to find ways to have a better quality life so I can be a better person. My goals for 2017:

  • Once or twice a month, I will take the time to do a trail run. Instead of rushing my run like I did in 2016.
  • Regain my better eating habits and work out at the gym once or twice a week consistently.
  • Practice patience.
  • Once a week, enjoy quiet moments that are deeper with my God.
  • Try to be a better wife.

What are your goals?


So I created this for Sunday, December 27 bulletin cover at the church I work at, and I liked it so much that I want to share it with you. I have created two graphics–one with words and one without.

Because December 27 is between Christmas and New Year’s, the photo shows remnants of Christmas–Christmas cards that people sent, a wayward ornament that fell off the tree, and a bow left over from Christmas morning.

So enjoy! This is copyright free.
