Be Renewed in the New Year

As we put up new calendars, once again we glibly wish everyone, “Happy New Year!”  But what does this mean? Here is one way to open up that expression. Consider it my prayer for blessings on you!

Best wishes for a fresh new year of your life. During 2013 may you . . .

reconnect with old friends and make some new friends

break some bad habits and form some good ones

get out of a rut and aim for the stars

listen to God in your heart and speak about him to others

stop wasting time and make every moment count

turn crosses into stepping stones

forgive hurts and ask pardon of others

dispose of unused clothes and clutter and buy something you need

feed the hungry and eat healthy yourself

avoid conflict and create peace

lose a distasteful job and take up a new hobby

surprise others and be surprised by them

love and be loved.

All of these things will make for a truly “happy” new year! (They may also help you decide on your new year’s resolutions.)

What would you add to the list?
