It's time to hang up that new calendar! My wife works hard on the kitchen calendar every year. She writes in every birthday (and age of the person), anniversary (and years of marriage), and any other special day that needs to be remembered. She's always reminding me that it's someone's anniversary or birthday. It's a good thing!
Many people are given to resolutions as the new year dawns. I would guess that a high percentage of those go unkept. Perhaps we are unrealistic in our self-appraisals. Maybe we have great intentions but no inner drive to accomplish that to which we commit.
I'm not going to make any resolutions this year. Oh, I have goals. There are some things I want to accomplish. There are changes I need to and want to make. I'm just going to dig down deep and go after those things, with the help of an accountability partner or two. Most importantly I am going to trust the Lord to help me, for apart from Him, I can do nothing (John 15:5).
Happy New Year!
