Happy New Year!

It is a brand new year! It's funny all the hype and the attention it gets. Yes, we have to change the last number of the year, and it's a time of reflection and looking forward.

For some it is a time of hope. A time to put the old behind and look forward to the new.

And, as I think about this - and don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good sit-down-quiet-introspective-and-reflective time - I think it is important.... but the more and more I think about it, I am aware of all the lost opportunities I have to do so.

His mercies are new EVERY day. They day is new EVERY morning. My hopes and dreams are reborn, and the struggles of the previous day are just a little farther away.

So, as I look forward into this New Year, I wish to remember that I have this opportunity EVERY day. May I make the best of it!

And, may You show me what You would have me do in this new year!

Happy 2011!
