Do You Make Resolutions?

resolutionsWow I can’t believe it is almost 2013!  How was your Christmas? Good? I hope so! Mine was pretty good! I spent it mostly alone with my husband. The kids and some of the grand Kids came over the afternoon of Christmas. I am still struggling with this whole “being alone on Christmas!” thing.  It is so sudden for me, and so against what I always thought it would be like as the parent of adult children. But that is a blog for another day.

Today I want to talk about New Year Resolutions! Do you make them? If so, do you keep them?  I am not into New Year resolutions, but I am into making a new vision board for the new year  (which if you follow my blog you saw my vision board for 2013)  Something else I really like to do, as of 2 years ago, is a cleansing of sorts for the end of the year.                                                                                                                                                I spend the last week of the year thinking about anything that I am not happy with which might have happened during the previous year. At the end of each day I write these things in my journal. I take the list and I pray over it and give it to God. I let it all go never to be revisited again. Whatever it is, I give it to God. I burn the paper and actually give it up to Him.  As the paper burns I pray “thank you for taking my burdens” and I know He does. I have faith and I trust that it is now in His hands.  It is a new year!  365 new beginnings!
