I’ve never been one for New Year’s resolutions in the past. It always seemed a little hokey, making a promise to do something one needs to do anyway such as get fit, clean out closets and finish projects. This year may just be different. What if the resolution was manageable and more than just a “To Do” list? What if not only the behavior changed but the vision? Rather than just a solution there was a new vision?
I’ve set my sights on up-to date photo albums. Photos are my final frontier. I’ve often told Scott that we will no doubt be blessed with daughter-in-laws that will possess beautiful albums recording childhood memories while my sons will have multiple photo boxes and shoe boxes brimming with pictures and many others on the hard drive, never printed. God has provided beautiful stories for both of my boys. It’s my job to get the photos in some semblance of order…especially before high school graduation!
Another one of my new visions for 2012 is to reconnect with old friends I haven’t visited with for a while. Last week, Scott and I curled up in front of the fire to read Christmas letters and admire family photos printed on Christmas cards. Whether across the city or across the country, I want to spend more time catching up with the ones I love.
Both of my visions for 2012 deal with being “tech savvy”. Technology sometimes throws me for a loop. My sweet husband gave me an iPhone for Christmas. (Hopefully I’m smarter than the little hand-held gadget!) My vision needs to change from one who cringes at the fast pace of technology to one who embraces and uses it to it’s fullest extend for God’s Kingdom. (I’ll keep you posted in how the process is going. So far so good!)
A new year, a time for new beginnings. My prayer is to be the best I can be for the glory of God. What’s your new vision for 2012?
Happy New Year sweet friends! May God bless you and yours abundantly in 2012!
