Happy New Year!!!

May God bless us and keep us;
May He make His face shine upon us;
May the Lord be gracious to us and grant us His peace.

Happy New Year! May 2012 be a year of peace, joy, and blessing for all!

I am not one to make resolutions. I wish I were stronger in character so that I could make them (and stick with them!), but so far that hasn't been the case.

BUT, since my brother was here and asked me what mine WOULD be if I were to make them, here's my list:

Offer to God the first 10 minutes of every day.
Speak (and yell) less and listen more.
Continue the task of purging the clutter from my life.
Take time to be creative.

Anyone have any they'd like to share?

Stop yelling and be more gentle and loving.

Your list is much like mine - I am also trying to gets outside everyday (for more than just a brief moment to call the kids in or give scaps to the chickens) and I am also trying to journal at least briefly at night in part as an examination of conscious, and also as a chance to reflect in gratitude to God. But I hesitate to call them resolutions - I like to think of them as habits to cultivate. Perhaps it is the same thing, but resolutions always seem to have such a bad reputation!

May we all, by God's grace, grow in holiness this year!
