Happy New Year 2010!
I love the time between Christmas and New Years. For me it has always been a kind of quiet, contemplative time. A time to sit in front of the fire with a much anticipated new book. A time to reflect on the past year and reevaluate goals for the new one.
I will try to be more realistic with my goals, flexible with my plans, more disciplined in my work.
I will worry less and pray more.
I will smile until I feel like smiling.
I will try a little harder to see and serve Jesus, especially in those I don't like.
I will sacrifice some of my excess and even, sometimes, some of my necessities, so that someone else may have basic comforts of food, shelter,clothing or education.
I will play music, and read books, and walk in the woods.
I will share all these things with my children.
