2012 is quickly coming to an end. Can’t say I’m too disappointed. I know that tomorrow is just another day on the calender. Nothing magical happens. It really is just another day.
The idea that one year is ending and a new one is beginning offers a chance to create a change; a shift of sorts. A shift in thinking, habits, goals, actions.
Tomorrow will be no different than today unless I choose for it to be. God is not suddenly going to love me more and present me with His list of new possibilities for my life. What He WILL do is be there for me (as always!) and sit with me as I share my longings for change and growth in my life. He will be my strength when I am weak and my courage when I am wavering, as I embark on some new life changes.
If I had a nickel for every New Year’s Resolution I’ve set and failed, I’d be a wealthy woman! As I am nearing the end of my 40’s, I’m feeling a bit melancholy and reflective… well, more reflective that usual.
As I ponder this past year, my mind wanders to the past (almost) 50 years.
I question. I smile. I remember. I weep. I laugh. I regret. I rejoice. I wonder…
Then I hear a tender whisper deep in my spirit… Turn around. Look forward. Don’t look back. I am with you.
