I do have some goals for this year. I already told you about the first one:
 Romans 12 for 2012! The kids and I have started memorizing it- now the hard part...putting it into practice...
 Couch to 5K! Have you heard of this? I got an app for my phone that allows me to listen to music while I walk/run- and I will get notified when I need to switch from running to walking...it gradually gets you from running for about 40 seconds at a time--to completely running 3 miles! I love it so far- I'm into my second week. Here is an excerpt from the website:
My goal is to run a 5k with Dave this Spring. This is huge because, a) I have not run a 5k since college and, b) I hated running even then when I was in shape...but I am optimistic and life is too short not to run a race with my husband, you know?!
Too many people have been turned off of running simply by trying to start off too fast. Their bodies rebel, and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to do this to themselves.
You should ease into your running program gradually. In fact, the beginners' program we outline here is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The idea is to transform you from couch potato to runner, getting you running three miles (or 5K) on a regular basis in just two months.
 Chill out! This one takes a little explaining. I want to still uphold the expectations that we have for our children- but, when they mess up, make a mistake, or just flat out rebel; I want to react in a loving way, firm but kind. Showing that no matter what, my feelings for them never change. That I understand and love them and make many ((many)) mistakes myself, and struggle with sins every day- and we will have to deal with it....but that it is not the end of the world.
I struggle with this one- maybe just with my body language- when the kids start fighting- I tend to show them how annoying this is to me- what an interference that is to my day. And this should not be the case at all! They are my joy- it is my privilege to nurture and train them every day....sometimes I act as if I am surprised that they would do such a thing (whatever that childish and naughty behavior may be) - when the reality is that we all mess up every single day (hourly) and God is so loving and patient and forgiving to us. I am praying to react in a loving and forgiving and understanding way.
There are lots more I could add to this list--but I really want to focus on these 4 things; Romans 12, running, responding in love (this could go back to Romans 12 too!), and studying the Bible.
Tell me what you have planned for this year, I would love to know- or, if you have posted about it- put a link in the comment section.
