Yes, there is much adieu around the water cooler about New Year's Resolutions. I for one am tired of making New Year's Resolutions. Even worse, for me, it's usually New Week's Resolutions, or New Day's Resolutions. This year, I think I'm going to make a few New Life's Resolutions.
Once and for all, for the rest of my life, I am resolved to lose this 100 pounds that had been dragging me down for so long. I know. I know. We've all heard Vic say this before and with much conviction but I just wonder if I don't do this now, in 2009, if I'll ever, ever do it. I've got this sick feeling that if I don't make this stand right now, I'm never going to. NOW IS THE TIME!!!
Once and for all, for the rest of my life, I am resolved to be a man of God. No more playing church. No more playing Christian while my devotional life, my prayer life, and my ministry are relegated to some back room where I peek in now and then just to be able to say I have SOME relationship with Christ.
Once and for all, for the rest of my life, I am resolved to bring happiness and peace to my home. I will serve my children with love and compassion and pray for them every day. I will make our home a refuge from this world, a place where my wife finds peace and where she knows she is loved.
These are my New Life's Resolutions.
