resolution

Are you one who makes New Year resolutions?  If so, are you one who keeps them?

I normally don't make any resolutions. I can't remember the last time I did, and whatever it was I'm sure I didn't keep it. They're sort of like diets and other good intentions that fall by the wayside.

It was nice to begin 2012 on a Sunday - to start off the day in church. It helps put everything into the right perspective. I'm often thinking how nice it would be to retire - to be able to relax and not have to deal with the headaches of work and other bumps that arise. 

But day to day, we never know what is going to happen.  We all know the cliche about the best laid plans of mice and men. So I came up with three things that I hope I can remember and act upon - perhaps not so much resolutions, but mindsets:

Be thankful for God's grace in all things.

Look forward to what He has in store for me.  God has His plan.

Be mindful of Colossians 3:23 - Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men.
