Christmas was wonderful, overflowing with “energies” (granddaughter Lydia’s latest word).
Christmas, and 2019, are now history.
When the house gets quiet again,
“Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord,
and our heart is restless
until it finds its rest in thee.”
–Augustine of Hippo
Here on this New Years Day of 2020, we will take down the ornaments on the tree,
take a nice long walk outside on a sunny day
reflect on both our past and our future
and make resolutions.
Last year’s theme was Jubilee, bringing with it our golden anniversary and no resolutions.
This year, I choose the word Resolution itself!
- To remember this vision statement: My life is focused on becoming an elder, serving rising elders and future generations, learning from them all that I can about the nature of love.
- To spend the first half hour of each new day in quiet, spiritual reading, prayer, and meditation.
- To write the next three hours without interruption from the internet.
- To spend another half hour a day doing nothing.
I would LOVE to know how you are spending your first hours and days of 2020.
Have you made resolutions? Or do you resolve NOT to resolve?
