A couple of years ago, like eight to be exact I heard a sermon that changed my life based off the bible verse, “Without vision the people will perish.” The pastor encouraged us to make a life list, akin to a bucket list, but I prefer his title! To make a list of things you want to do however great or small over the course of your life, but most importantly write them down. So my list began and would you believe I’ve actually crossed off at least 20 things, things like ride an elephant in Thailand to learning how to play the guitar! So I reserve the month of January for thinking of new things to add to the “list.”
Here’s my #1 for 2012: to spend time with the Lord in prayer in scripture before blogging!
What a great reminder Maria, thank you! And I love the idea of a lifelong bucket or visions list rather than resolutions each year.
I struggle to do this too-So easy to be distracted!
Meant to ask where you found that scripture print? I would love to frame one!
What a wonderful thing to do each and every morning. I promised myself I would end each day with music and now I think I'll start each day just like this.

I really enjoy your blog and I just want to encourage you to keep writing and posting! I am going to start going to God before blogging as well. Priorities have to be in order. He comes first. Grace, peace and life, sis.
