Lets not be boring

i read this article by Craig on Timemanagementninja.com and laughed out loud but was equally inpired. as we take a look back at the year that was 2011. I want all of us to take inventory. Pray and ask God to reveal to you what he was doing in you and how you can learn the lessons from this year and be better next year. I am convinced that each year we receive a mandate bigger than ourselves and like the coat that hannah would make for Samuel we must grow into it under the loving care of our Father in heaven and with the guidance of the Holy spirit. Anywho…here are some ideas from the new year and the more truer you…of ways to not be boring. 😉
