Top Ten Questions

Found this at http://www.biblicalspirituality.org/newyear.html thanks to my pastor, and it gave me some really interesting things to think about. Since I can really use some distraction tonight, and turning to God is always good for that, I'm going to try to come up with my own answers.
What would you say? Feel free to copy/ paste.

1. What's one thing you could do this year to increase your enjoyment of God?
Spend more quiet time with God... more time talking to Him about HIM...less time asking for things, more time just enjoying His prescence and learning about Him.
2. What's the most humanly impossible thing you will ask God to do this year?
To bring me a best friend that will last a lifetime. A real best friend who lives close by me, that I can go shopping with, have girl-talk with, do each other's hair if we want, go out to lunch, talk about our husbands and our jobs, tell secrets to each other, go to each other's houses, our husbands will be friends, she will be a strong Christian who loves to talk about God.

3. What's the single most important thing you could do to improve the quality of your family life this year?
More personal time wtih my husband, just enjoying each other-not over housework, but just hanging out.
