Well here we are again at another New Years Eve, New Years Day, and there are just some things that never really seem to change. We all start off with the best if intentions I am sure, but there is always something that happens and we end up falling short, or at least that seems to have been my experience.
I know that every year we all, or at least I do, say that I am going to start taking better care of myself, but there are times when I think that if I were to start taking better care of myself, that it just might kill me, so I think that I had better be careful, of what it is that I wish for or that I am looking for.
But I digress.
The one thing that I hope for, as I have always hoped for will be that this coming year will be the best year yet. Of course this is with the understanding that no matter how hard that we work, no matter how hard that we pray or prepare, there are still going to be some things that are simply out of our control.
That the only thing that I can do is take what it is that I have been given and simply pray for the rest. Through it all though, no matter how bad it got, or how bad that I think that it was, there was always the hope of tomorrow, and the New Year.
The New Year, always filled with hope. The promise of love, redemption, and the belief that there is such a thing as a better life. What else is there?
The one thing that I do know is that there will always be something better then whatever it is that we could have planned for, even if we are not looking for it. It’s all good.
Happy New Year, and may God richly bless all of you.
So it goes. Press on regardless.
