Okay, I’m a day late, a dollar short, six months behind, and with no change. But Happy New Year!!! I rang in the New Year as I traditionally do, fast asleep and probably snoring.
December 31, 2018 turned out better than I thought it would. December 31st’s are always depressing for me. I spend the day reviewing the year, remembering those we’ve lost and the tragedies, my own personal failures. I tend to feel like another year has passed and there’s nothing to show for it.
Then, I wake up the next morning and it is the beginning of a New Year. A new beginning, a fresh start, a year without any mistakes in it. I have a New Year which will be full of second and third chances.
But this December 31st, I was reassured and I believe that every day, Christ makes all things new. We don’t have to wait until January 1st for our “second chance.” We can seize it now, or any time we please.
So, what are your New Year’s Resolutions? Do you have any?
