Here we are once again ending another year.  What a year it has once again been!  I really thought this pandemic was going to go away after a year---but it has proved me wrong- AGAIN.  After three shots I have decided to go back to living my life as normally as possible.  (There's that word again--you would think I would begin to recognize there is no such thing as normal.)  Masks are kept in my car, along with hand sanitizer to try and adhere to expectations where ever I might go.  

Do you not love this quote?  Think it over--what really happens when January 1 rolls around, yet again?  We turn the calendar over to a new page.  Another day rolls around.  We use our calendars to signify the opportunity for creating change.  Have we all not said, surely this will be a better year?

What seems most important is that we live the new year with intent, or even better, live everyday with intent.  How many days have I let flitter away on the winds of lack of direction and laziness?  My prayer is this year, I can look to God with intent of seeking what He has instore for each and every day.  The days are dwindling as I get closer and closer to the end of the book.  There is an urgency in seeking to finish well and that only comes from intent.

SO--celebrate big today.  Begin that new calendar--fresh--with no wasted days.  Trek down the path of the days of the New Year with intent of living each and every day to the fullest.  HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS!

 Brothers and sisters,

 I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. 

But one thing I do: 

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,

 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize

 for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13-14

  1. May we all choose to live with intent for the New Year, learning from the past, and following fearlessly in Jesus' footstep.
    Blessings, Lulu!


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
