2016 Goals



With the coming of a New Year, posts of New Years Resolutions fill my inbox and blog feed.  Due to my dismal failures in the past to obtain my own personal resolutions, I sadly gave them up, years ago.  With that said, I do try to write out my goals within the first month of a new year though.  Some are lofty goals with little chance of obtaining them, while others are more realistic.  They all help me to grow, however, to become the person I believe God desires me to become.  So here are 2016 goals....
