It's 2009. I'm ready for a new year and all the fresh opportunities. At the same time it seems daunting because there are so many of them. Like a department store clearing out its inventory to make room for the new season's merchandise, I want to sweep through the layers of my life, forgetting what is behind and reaching out to what is ahead.
Before the crinkly wrapper comes all the way off the new year, I need to have my goals high and my attitude positive. I want to spend more time on relationships, put my heart into my gifts, and give more of myself to God. It's a big challenge, but we have a big God. Who knows what we can accomplish through His grace? There's only one way to discover the answer.
