It's here - the end of 2013.
This is just about the time when I start to get sappy. I start to feel a lot of emotion and realize that the end of 2013 is really here, and it is time to start a new year.
It is profound when you really think about it.
A full year of doings has taken place.
A full year of the good, the bad, and the ugly.
A full year of God carrying me over and over again.
And now... it's time to start a whole new year of events, emotions, hopes, dreams, goals, projects, relationships, recipes...
As you think about the past year, remember all that God has done. Remember that the past is in the past, and the future holds good things.
Reflect upon the good that happened, and what you should work hard at maintaining.
Also, think about where your life is lacking and where you hope to see improvement. Renew your mind, your schedule, your goals … your life.
Don't overwhelm yourself with too many goals at once. Make a list and start somewhere. As you check things off your list, you will feel good.
Remember. Reflect. Renew!
Happy New Year to all of you!
May the Lord bless you and keep you
and may His face shine upon you.
