Welcome to One Pink Toothbrush, where I will be posting moments from my days as a mum and as a wife. Funny moments, messy moments, thoughtful moments, teary moments.... and hopefully using each moment to see what God might be saying.

My Not So New Year’s Resolutions

I started the year by thinking about what resolutions I should make for 2011…
eat less chocolate,  no puddings-just fruit,  don’t be a nag or a drippy tap, make healthy nutritional meals for the kids, be “Fun Mum” all year round,  exercise more, read the bible every day…. etc etc.

But I didn’t entertain these ideas for long because...

Crème eggs were already in the shops (and on offer), puddings with fruit in the title are surely acceptable, like a good Apple Strudel, meatballs and pasta only takes 12minutes and costs 43p, fun mum is tired and doesn’t want to make a pasta picture or a crocodile shoe box, surely the school ‘run’ is exercise (even if it is by car), and I’d read my bible if I could find it…

So this year, mine are simple.

Practically live out the wise words found in Proverbs 3v5-6, in each and every situation I find myself in.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
     and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
   and he will make straight your paths.”

Oh, and write a blog...
