I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I never keep them, and I don’t want to disappoint myself. But I do think it’s right to believe in new beginnings, fresh starts, second chances, third and fourth…
But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies
never come to an end;
they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.
How can I not hope for new chances? God promises me new
mercies and love every day.
I want to be more like Jesus every day.
I want to be a better wife to Murray, to the man who shows
me such kindness and tenderness, who I hope to have many years yet to live
To be the kind of mother to my kids who can still support
them as adults.
To find a more organized way to do my work as a writer,
editor and braille grader.
And I pray for you that you will be reminded, too, of God’s
new help every day for new and better todays.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17:
"May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hopes, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word."
