Resolutions for 2010

The top of my resolution list for 2010 is the same one that topped the list for 2009; maybe I'll actually get it done this year! 

- Pick out wedding pictures.  (Yes, it has been almost a year and a half since we got married but I have not yet selected our wedding pictures.  You see this is an impossible task because of the magnificent job Allison and Jeff Rodgers did a at capturing the events of our special day! I want one of each of the 1,000 photos!)
- Join a gym and go.
- Drink more water.
- Remember birthdays and send cards or call.
- Finish the kitchen renovation and maybe some other renovations around the house!  (I'm not going to set the bar too high on this one.  I thought we would finish the kitchen before Labor Day when we ripped it out last May --- I was way off!)
- Continue to blog.
- And most importantly daily remember my priorities in life.

Yesterday at church we sang the song "In Christ Alone."  I think the lyrics are good to dwell on as far as the last resolution goes.

In Christ Alone
by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend
IN CHRIST ALONE my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! – who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied –
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand!
