The common wish is for a Happy New Year. We all know there will be happy moments, but there will be sad moments as well. Also disgusting moments, heartbreaking moments, Cloud 9 moments, and much more. It will be a full array of feelings, hopes, dreams, realities, and disappointments. Although, we hope, for our friends and for ourselves, to have more pleasant moments outweighing the wearisome ones.
I am reading emails tonight talking about running out of time, procrastination, limited time remaining, the American economy is headed for a catastrophe, build a better life, I am being missed – they want me to come back and buy more of their stuff, etc. None of these inspire me to move out of the doldrums into glorious light and wealth. Yet a quasi goal is — to have more productive energy in a day. I am not making a resolution. I never do, because I know I wouldn’t keep it. And, at my age, am I really going to have more energy? Likely no. Maybe what I want to say is that I want to use my energy in more productive ways. Yet, I have never been one to waste time.
All of this rambling to say: I hope we all use our time to the best of our abilities and create the best life for ourselves as is possible. Remember — all good things come from God. By pleasing God, we have a better chance of having a happy new year!
Happy New Year!!!
