Happy New Year

Can't believe I haven't been on here since November. Life seems to be getting busier if that was ever possible and I just don't seem to find the time to write on here. We enjoyed a family Christmas and New Year with friends with a short trip to the mountains in between.

No resolutions for 2012 but I intend to do the following this year:

Grow closer to God by spending more time in the word and in prayer. I started a new Bible reading plan this year after following UCB's Bible in a year plan for the last decade or more. This one is a Historical approach which looks at the entirety of the Bible as it happened. Still in Genesis, but it is good and has made me appreciate how much actually happened in Genesis: Creation, the Fall, Noah, Lot, Abraham etc etc.

By walking closer with the Lord everything else will fall into place this year! That is what I'm expecting. If Jesus is by my side in everything that I do I will have a great year!

My draft thesis is being read by an academic within the Faculty at the moment so I am waiting for the feedback so I can progress. Another deadline for Friday which I haven't started yet. I really want to finish now and was disappointed that the jobs that I applied for before Christmas were non-existent! In the meantime I am working voluntarily one morning a week at the local Foodbank which I am really enjoying.

Graham and the children are well. Well, Graham will need a knee operation in a few weeks but hopefully it will sort out his cartilage/ligament damage. Charlie is waiting to hear from two more universities and is busy revising at the moment as he has his Maths A'Level this week. Harry is playing even more music and is practising for Rock night at school. He got a distinction in his Grade 8 guitar and now started some Jazz grades. Rosie is growing into a beautiful young lady and is busy with her friends and socialising. Quick update over and I must get to school to collect Rosie.
