a new year & how I will spend it
by Misty Dawn
this year I’ll make every effort to be INTENTIONAL.
that’ll be my word of the year.
it’ll be how I begin each day.
& my measure at each day’s end.
I will intentionally pursue my daughter’s soul.
& learn to love her even more than I already do.
I will intentionally give priority to my husband’s soul over my own comfort.
I will give myself more grace when I look in the mirror.
I will walk away from unnecessary arguments.
& ask for forgiveness when I don’t.
I will forgive those I haven’t yet.
I will hold fast to the direction God has sent me.
without any shame at all.
& I will lock hearts with those who do the same.
I’ll chase the hearts of those that don’t
I’ll learn to curl my hair with my straightener.
to be just a little better than yesterday, each day, is all I really want.
what will your one word be?
how will you begin each day,
& measure each day’s end?
