30 Dec

Every man should be born again on the first day of January.  Start with a fresh page.  Henry Ward Beecher

Here we go again, now I am not complaining about another year, believe me when I say I’m glad to be alive, and it’s 2015 too.  In 2008 the doctors said my prognosis was not good.  And here it is, my 7th New Year, and I am still alive, and cancer-free.

I remembered when I could hardly wait for the New Year to roll in.  Did I tell you it was for all the wrong reasons, and did I tell you I didn’t have cancer, then?  Every now and then if a person or a project was important enough, I went to church, other than those few times I was out on the streets, someone’s home, a bar; it didn’t matter as long as I was getting my party on.

Oh!  I was going out, there was no question about that.  As a matter of fact, I started planning that next New Years Eve party, shortly after Labor Day.  On top of that, I had decided on what my “New Years Resolutions”  would be. They were all full of hope concerning what I would and would not do for the next 365 days.  They were at best lies, lies unintentionally told.

Somewhere in that lifetime, I forgot all about I needed Grace and Favor from God, to achieve even the smallest of tasks.  For without me, you can do nothing.  (John 15:5

My plans were all about me, and what I was going to do. That, “I’m a gonna, thang.”  You know the one, the very thing we are going to do all our lives, and never get to it.  Some will even express to their loved ones, on their dying bed, what they are “going to do.”   Needless to say, “I’m not gonna do that again.”

“Good luck on that one,”  I heard a friend say under their breath after I made the announcement.

I found the things I say I will not do, are the very things I do, first.  Including, if I see or greet an unknown person new to my click, and immediately proclaimed; “I don’t like them,”  when all they did was walked into the room.  In hindsight, when I made that prediction, more than likely, that person ended up becoming one of my best friends.

Thank God, I have since been able to change my ” I know everything”  about you at first glance, attitude and opinion.  After years of the same ole judging tactics, I finally realized, I would fare far greater if I waited, before giving my unsolicited opinion.  Useful knowledge, I pray to continue by taking what its worth into 2015, and beyond.

Your assumptions are your windows to the world.  Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.  Isaac Asimov.

So, with that said, and this upcoming New Year is only a few days away, perhaps when we make our annual resolutions, and claim them to be a new start.  Take into consideration, those resolutions may be a new start to an old “I won’t do that again,” habit.

FYI: “Changes are needed for any progress.  Even cemeteries change.”

Hallelujah: Praise Ye The Lord!  Be grateful you made it, unlike some who did not.

My New Years wish for all is: I pray your problems only last as long as your New Years Resolutions if they “ain’t right.”  If they are positive, start there on a good note letting 2015 be the year of growth.

Happy New Year to all, and remember Jesus is Lord, that’s why we are here in 2015.

Thank you, Lord, for another “New Year.”   With your blessing, we will strive to make it a better one, especially when it concerns the needs of others.  In Jesus name, we pray.  Amen!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without
    my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
