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!

    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your site.
    It appears as if some of the text on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but I in finding
    this matter to be actually one thing that I
    feel I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely
    extensive for me. I’m taking a look ahead to your subsequent publish, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
    a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
