Welcome to 2010, a new start! I love New Year's Day, when I decide, every year, to be a new person. There's just something about a new year, a new month, or just a Monday that inspires me to want to do better. And, of course, being a human, I never quite make it. But that's just it, I AM a human, and I will never be quite what I was created to be this side of eternity. However, I can, with God's help, grow towards that, and that growing is worth the striving.
So, in addition to taking better care of my earthly self (this body isn't going to get any younger-- a condition my doctor sister-in-law diagnoses as TMB, Too Many Birthdays!) I am choosing two of my favorite verses to keep in the front of my mind this year:
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18.
Blessings to you in 2010!
