I’ve been hearing/reading a lot about New Year’s resolutions these past few days. I can’t say that I’m really one of those “resolutions” people, but I sure do like the ring of the word “new”. I like the thought of starting fresh and a slate clean and ready for new possibilities.
A friend of mine inspired me a few years ago when she told me she likes to have a theme for each new year. She thinks about and focuses on that as she goes through the next 365 days. I like that idea.
So…I was thinking and searching for what my year’s theme could be. As I was doing so, I was able to hear a speaker talk about some thoughts on the book of Ecclesiastes. I was struck especially by one thought…”Celebrate the everyday with joy.”
As I’ve pondered that phrase, there is so much in it that strikes a chord in my heart.
So often we wait for a special occasion to celebrate. But really, every DAY is a special occasion – a gift! I want to think about that more as this year goes by…
