I don't always do a New Year's resolution. But this year I am going to join the millions of other people around the world and make a resolution to lose weight. I want to get back into my healthy weight range so I have about 20kg to lose. I really want to stick to this, and as part of it am making a resolution to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day 6 days a week
I am also making a resolution this year, to not only be a Christian, but to be more like Christ. And I am also making a resolution to pray every single day for Shane's family. Since I really do believe that prayer is an incredibly powerful weapon- and this is such an important thing, I am committing to this. Because it is just devastating to think of the lack of faith that people- my family!- have. I am also committing to pray each day for Georgie and for Shane, because I know the power of a praying wife and mother.
