I'm linking up with Sunny Days in Second Grade for her My Truth Monday!
This week she has changed the take on New Year's Resolutions and has asked us all to pick one word to stick to this year. I am very much someone who likes to make goals, because I like to check things off. My goals for the year aren't really things that are going to be hard to do, but instead are more of a check list of things that I would like to accomplish this year.
Now, my word that I came up with is . . . .
I strive to live a life that is Christ Centered. I know that is very hard to do in this world, but I want to lead by example. I am put in a great situation, where I am able to freely share my faith with my students daily, and not just in our religion class. I am able to share my views with them throughout the day, and pray with them whenever we feel like it.
Even with this going on in class I know that I sometimes am short tempered with them, and do not always show them the grace and love that they deserve. My goal for my class this year is to show them the grace and love that God freely pours out to us!
At home I hope to be more Christ centered as I remember that I need to put my families needs before my own. My children always come first, but I need to make sure that I take the time to pray with my babies, and that they are getting the positive influence from us as well.
Finally I know that I need to work on this greatly with my husband. He always gets the worst side of me, as I am usually tired and grouchy by the end of the day and have very little left to give. I need to make sure that I am being the wife he needs, and that I am doing everything in my power to lift him up to the Lord in prayer daily.
I pray that each of you has a great 2014, and that you are able to grow even more this year!
