I can not for the life of me remember where I posted my new year's resolutions last January. I know I had some. I think I put them in the comments to some one's blog. Was it yours?
The only one I remember is to get in the habit of using cloth shopping bags instead of plastic grocery bags. I've got a collection of big, strong bags in the trunk of my car and we use them 90% of the time. Good habit!
This year I am looking at some pretty serious health issues in January, so my resolutions are back to basics. I had a biopsy that came back with a bad report and I am going to have to have surgery this month. It will mean a very difficult winter for me and my family. In the best case I'll be back full strength by spring. In the worst case.... I'm counting my blessings.
I'm taking my resolutions from my source of deepest strength:
- Be anxious for nothing. Philippians 4:5-8
- Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice. Philippians 4:4 (Bible search results in 124 citations, listed over five pages. Rejoice must be a strong theme, no?)
- Trust in the Lord Psalm 91:2-4
How about you? What are you resolved to do this year?
