End of the year

I've always enjoyed making New Years' resolutions... most of which don't seem to last very long. I've gotten more realistic over the years, but I still have mostly mixed results.

For example, from last year:
  1. I resolved to get in shape during 2007. That didn't happen.
  2. I wanted to get a better job. Success! I managed to do that!
  3. I was going to complete an IT certificate program. That didn't happen.
  4. I promised to have a daily quiet time. I kinda did that... but I can do better.
  5. I wanted to read more and watch TV less. Hrmm. I think I managed to read more, but I also managed to watch more TV... so I would have to count that one as a wash!
I might not have managed to live up to all of my resolutions last year, but it was still an excellent year for me. I got off to a slow start, but I did manage to get some material written for this site. I got to know some wonderful people. I found out what grace was all about. I got baptized. Not bad!

Here's the beginning of my list for 2008... subject to change (of course) until Jan 1:
  1. Get some exercise 4-5 times per week
  2. Read through the Bible at least once, maybe twice this year (NLT first... then NASB)
  3. Save more money
  4. Take a real vacation (which could sabotage #3!)
  5. Complete the online classes at
