2013 was a very eventful year for me and my family and a year of some forced changes, and of course changes we wanted to make. Either way it has been a year of drastic change for so many.
I’m not sure where 2014 will take us, but I am sure it will be another Eventful year (I Pray for all good Events!)
I would like to take a moment to thank GOD for those in my life, and for the time I was able to spend with those that have gone to Heaven. I have the faith of GOD that I will see them all again one day as Jesus promised.
I pray we will find a cure for Cancer, it is such an awful thing.
I pray that GOD will keep everyone in my Family Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise in his Word.
The Attributes of God, by Dr. David Hocking, is a sixteen-part course that examines the characteristics and nature of Almighty God, as revealed in the Scriptures. The instructor conveys the fact that knowing God is the highest pursuit of human life. There is no better source than the Bible for learning about God’s ways and this course is replete with His Word. Answers are found to questions such as: Why should we worship God? What does it mean to fear the Lord? How can we understand the Trinity? These topics and a multitude of others are thoroughly discussed in the course material. There is nothing more important than having a personal relationship with the sovereign Creator. It is our hope that these classes will promote a vital, spiritual growth and maturity in the heart of every student. This class is available through the text or the audio version, and we encourage you to enroll today.

Attend Church more regularly, more personal Bible study, Pray more often, and carry my Bible with me.
Make a check list of everyone I love and make sure I use it to the letter when I plan an event. I made a mess of that last year…Hurt some feelings of people I love and there is no way to un-ring that bell I’m afraid. 😦 I ask forgiveness…
ANY and ALL Debts owed to me by ANYBODY are forgiven. Not only forgiven, but Forgotten. Don’t you wish you borrowed $50 Bucks from me yesterday? 🙂 To late now 🙂
Help As many people as I can help, and don’t fret about it if I can’t help someone.
Stop wondering why God took my wife Joy. I accept that it was God’s will, and I will now continue with what the Lord has in store for me. I have to put this question away.
NO Smoking. (This is the only tough one…) 🙂
Spend more time outside, be more active, and less time on computer(s).
Start playing the Banjo again 🙂 I haven’t played it the better part of 2013. Put it down one day and just haven’t picked it back up…
Trap Shoot more often.
You know…I should do some Blog posts with pictures and stuff to show the world me and the family Shooting Trap. I holler “PULL!” and everyone does the duck and scramble! lol
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
New Year’s Resolutions don’t work for me. I have made many, many, New Year’s resolutions in the past, just like you all probably have. I made all the usual promises like, “I am gonna quit smoking. I am gonna be a better Christian. I am gonna volunteer at a homeless shelter. Go to the gym, get in shape, eat healthier. Eat less junk food. Be a better dad….husband…son…whatever.”
Not once did I follow through on a “New Year’s” resolution. By February 1st all my resolutions were forgotten.
Why is that?
Well, I think the reason is that we cannot simply change ourselves based on one moment of commitment. It takes a daily recommitting and an understanding that we are weak, painfully weak. For instance, when I smoked my last cigarette on that September day some 4 years ago, I did not simply say, “I am done for my life.” There…
