*To be a model of contentment by living a life of quiet moderation within a world of boasted excess.
*To be an example of grace by choosing to serve even the selfish, love even the shallow, and have patience even with the proud.
*To be a picture of humility by rejoicing in the accomplishments and accolades of others just as much, if not more, than those bestowed upon me.
*To be a banner of integrity, by taking every thought captive and making it obedient to the will of Christ and by making every decision in alignment with that will and with the purposed intent of the furtherment of His Kingdom.
*To be a person of resurrection and beautification in every sense; including seeing myself in light of who I was purchased to be, seeing all others as precious treasures of the One who loves us both wholly and equally, and encouraging excellence and beauty in every single detail of my life and in the lives of those I have been privileged and purposed to affect.
It's about time.
