Dedicated to....

I've been giving some thought to what my New Years resolution(s) should be, or if I should even bother with them this year. Heaven knows the list of my shortcomings is miles long and there are SO many areas I need improvement in.
I've been pondering what my word for the year should be. Perhaps "persevere" would be a good one or "EnJOY" or "breathe".  Perhaps a phrase instead-something like "just keep swimming" or "try harder!" or "count to ten".
LOL

As I lay in bed new years eve, praying and pondering what things I should work on, I suggested to the Lord that perhaps I should consider dedicating this year to Him. 
Let me tell you, that's a scary thought for me. 
Most of the things I do aren't worthy of dedicating to Him.  

But, maybe if I start each day with that thought in mind, maybe it will make me strive a little harder to do better, and to be the kind of mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend that I want to be; that the people in my life deserve for me to be.
so....
big breath........
really big breath........
I can do this.
He has faith in me.

I DEDICATE THIS YEAR TO THE LORD.

I'm really scared now.
