What's Your Resolution?

Do you make New Year's resolutions?  Today is the last day of 2012 so I thought I'd share a few popular resolutions.

According to Statistic Brain, the top 10 resolutions are:
1. Lose weight
2. Get organized
3.Spend less, save more
4. Enjoy life to the fullest
5. Stay fit and healthy
6. Learn something exciting
7. Quit smoking
8. Help others in their dreams
9. Fall in love
10. Spend more time with Family

Ready for the resolution statistics?

I don't really do "resolutions". However, Jon and I decided that we want to read the entire Bible through in one year. It is sad, but neither of us have done so. Most of these plans begin in January. So, this is the perfect time to begin.
