Hopes, Dreams and Goals...With God's Blessings!

...One of my dearest hopes is to lead by example. Those who are closest to me and whom I cherish most are my family and dear friends. I have and always will feel it is my awesome responsibility that if I am to have any moral influence, I must try to lead by example. Joshua was that way. He knew the way because God had told him to be strong and courageous, to obey all of God's laws and to remember that God is always with us. He was obedient to the Lord and he showed the way by providing servant-leadership.
Be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love,
in spirit, in faith, in purity. ~1 Timothy 4:12
...It has always been a dream of mine to be able to touch others. I like to think of each of us being represented as one link in a continuous chain, that forms a circle. Each touching and looking out for their neighbor, knowing full well we are only as strong as our weakest link. In order for the circle to go unbroken we must look out for one another, even when it seems we have nothing to offer or to give, just that little bit of encouragement, or hug, or support or reading from the word, may be all that is needed to sustain life, to bridge the gap, or to offer hope. In that way, I might lead my friend just far enough, so that God may shed a bit of light to get them through the darkness, and the circle will go on.
He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but
have the light of life. ~ John 9:12
GOALS...My goal to better myself. To learn from my mistakes. To be more forgiving of others. To start each day off with his Word. To try to care more about the other person because by giving I receive. My goal this year is to get back into volunteer work maybe see if there is an opportunity to work with children. Most of all I want to always show my appreciation to God and to all my family and friends. I never want take one's kindness for granted but to always show my appreciation. Lastly, there is so much beauty in nature; his gifts that are so easy to take for granted...His blessings are a work of art, a gorgeous sunset, a precious little animal, a babbling brook or a swaying Palm tree, not to meantion my favorite...the ocean. hehe! I want to remember to acknowledge our Creators beautiful masterpieces, as they mean so much to me.
Again, now that 2007 is upon us, I will look forward to whatever God may have in store for us with the same optimistic hope and eager anticipation. I know whatever challenges face us we will meet them head on, and together. We always have, as we trust Him with all our hearts.
Update: My goodness, let me just thank you all so much! You prayers and kind words are dearly appreciated. I apparently have an infection in the left side of my face, which, is swollen and draining puss and blood into my mouth and is causing huge blister...I know, I know, I am sorry, it is disgusting but never the less, the Doctor has put me on a stronger antibiotic than Penicillin, called Augmentin and a stronger pain killer that is suppose to knock me out. I am doing fine. I may not post for a day or two, but I am fine. Then I have to go to the Micro Facial Sergent, even I don't know what that is exactly! lol
So, it's just the two of us kicking back, mending and feeling blessed to have friends like you and hoping He has wonderful joys in store for you and your loved ones! Blessings to all of you!
