Welcome Twenty-Ten

Psalm 1

1 Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.

5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

And so it goes... a new year and perhaps a new beginning.  That is what is so wonderful about being a Christian for me, each day I wake up, I have a new and fresh start to improve upon the day before.  It is especially wonderful to know that if I mess up my Father, my Abba, my Daddy will forgive me, if I but ask.  I believe the hardest part of forgiveness is that of forgiving ourselves.  I want to work on that this coming year.

I don't make 'resolutions' any more.  It always seemed as if they were more of suggestions, rather than true, life changing resolutions and somewhere around month three, I'd waver.  So I journal things and changes I'd like to see in myself. 

For example, this year I would like to listen more and speak less. 
I would like to hope for the best instead of expecting the worst. 
Instead of joining in on 'character bashing' I have determined to list (out loud) at the very least, one positive thing about the person being discusseed. 
I have decided to become a better person and a better disciple. 
Every night before bed, I have determined that I will write down three things that were blessings to me that very day.
I have also decided that I will not wait until a new year to make necessary changes, when I am made aware of them, I will immediately try to incorporate the necessary changes.

Happy New Year, my friends and Sisters in Christ!  I wish you all the best for the coming year.
