I surrender my life to you. Help me to change my will to Thy will. Opposition, resistance, and challenge will come; but I know that greater is He who is within me than he who is in the world. I will overcome every temptation, opposition, doubter, resistance, challenge, and past habit. With your help Dear God, I will succeed. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and that I can do nothing successfully without you O God.
I pledge that I will compliment someone each day and will say nothing negative about anyone. Each day I will find and tell someone something good or great about themselves. I will not gossip or make negative statements of any kind about another person. This combats envy as it focuses me on others and gears me to be happy for them instead of focusing on myself.
I pledge that I will not get angry, curse or complain. I will not raise my voice in anger. Nothing great or small will make me angry or react in anger. I will not complain about ANYTHING. Not the weather, not the government, not the news, not my aches, not my money, not my kids, my spouse, my job, my car, traffic, or anything else. I will NOT complain about ANYTHING!

I pledge that I will give someone something material each day. The size does not matter. Whether it is a dollar or a donut or buying someone's lunch, I must give someone "other than my own children" something each day. At least every other day it must be someone OUTSIDE of my family. Concentrating on giving helps me to control greed and realize my own blessings.
I Thank You God for this day. I Thank You God for your mercy and grace.
I Thank You God for the miracle that You will perform in my life.

Its New Years DAY! Sitting at home with the family and relaxing. We are anxiously awaiting the big game to come on so we can support our OHIO STATE BUCKEYES. Its great that they made it to the Rose Bowl this year. I just pray they can pull it off and bring home the win.
I am still new to this whole blogging thing. Its my goal to write something at least once a day. We will see how it goes.
So what are your goals for this new year????
Thanks for the support
