12 Things Lists

New Year

12 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Bess…
1. This February marks the 1st full year of living by myself in my apartment + the 2 year anniversary of Bess’ Bag!
2. I’ve been on 9 airplane flights {all of which by myself}… one of which I didn’t think I’d survive.  Nothing is more unnerving than being on a tiny craft, in the dark night sky, experiencing turbulence with a passenger screaming bloody murder behind you, & thunder clouds lighting up outside your window.  Eeek!
3. I love pumpkin pie + the scent of it!
4. Most every New Year’s one of my resolutions is to “have adventures.”  What can I say, I love ‘em!
5. Provided there’s no passengers, I always sing along with the car radio.
6. I wore a fancy ball gown on New Year’s Eve {only I was having a solo celebration @ my apartment – so no one got to see}. =)
7. I work in an inner city area. 
8. {I hate to admit this.}  I’ve never turned on the stove in my apartment!  Yep, I’m not gifted in cookery.
9. I wear glasses!
10. I live literally less than a minute’s drive away from my church.
11. I bought a new {to me} car in December, cause my other one was duck taped together & considered “undrivable.”  Ha!  Undrivable, you say?  I drove it!
12. At night when I can’t sleep, I like to think up the perfect baby names. =)
12 of my New Year’s Resolutions…
1. have adventures =)
2. eat breakfast daily
3. defeat worry
4. read, write, create more
5. take more walks, strolls, hikes
6. do new {good} things
7. take healthy chances & make sweet wishes – praying always
8. give more hugs
9. do my heavenly Daddy’s will & be a blessing in His Name
10. surprise people
11. continue to read the Word & memorize parts
12. give it all {what ifs, work, love, all the in-between} over to my Lord & leave it in His great hands
12 Things to Remember in 2012…
1. You are beautiful.  God’s the best artist & your manufacturer… handmade with love & care.
2. You don’t have to have a boyfriend to feel happy & fulfilled.  You do have to have a relationship with Jesus.
3. If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, all your sins have been forgiven & you are brand new.
4. Be full of truth.
5. Physical intimacy is worth the wait… not to mention God’s plan.
6. Be careful what you let your mind dwell on… make it pure & God pleasing.
7. You can make a true difference for God right now {at your age; right where you are}.
8. The devil lies… a lot {it’s his native tongue}.  It’s hard cause he’s sneaky, but don’t believe ‘em!
9. Valleys don’t last forever.  Just keep moving.
10. You don’t have to be perfect.  I repeat, you don’t have to be purfect perfect {& can’t, I might add}.
11. Joy is a choice {no matter your circumstances}.
12. This life is tough, but God will never leave you!   

Love for the New Year {2012},
