9 in '09

It's here, 2009 is finally here.
In case you haven't noticed, we are well into our way of 2009. Taxes will be due soon, Easter hats will be adorned, summer break in full effect. But wait! I know, I know I am jumping ahead of myself, we aren't that far in, but it's funny how time flies. I can remember all of those things from last year and it seems like we were just gearing up for them then. But anyway, I digress.
Right now, since 2009 is still fresh out the box, I wanted to talk about resolutions. Basically I am through with "New Year's Resolutions". Everyone does them every year and I'm sayin, what is the point? I say I want to lose weight, and be a better person every year. But somehow I never seem to make it past January. And, I don't know about you, but I feel kinda bad when I mess up and don't follow thru with my resolutions. I guess that is why I use the same ones every year. So anyway, I have decided that instead of setting make or break resolutions I am going to set goals (genius, I know, but I can't really take the credit for this I got it from my Pastor). I am setting 9 goals for 2009. 9 things that I would like to have achieved by the end of 2009. 9 things that I am going to pray about and strive for all year long. 9 things that will be ok if I don't hit, because goals are positive. Now, to be perfectly honest, 9 days in, I am not done with my list. I have gotten started. Just haven't finished. I will share what I have got so far.
1. Bring at least one person to Christ
2. Build my photography business, become more knowledgeable with a flash.
3. Install a family night
4. Get (and stay) organized in everything I do.
5. Complete at least one personal photo project (with boldness).
6. Read my Bible everyday.
Ok, so I am not done, but I think I am off to a very good start. What about you? Have you thought about your new years resolutions? I encourage you to change them into goals. Jump on board with me get 9 for '09 and feel good about them.
Also, because it doesn't feel right with out a picture, here is some miscellaneous minutiae for you.
