To all I wish a prosperous, blessed and happy new year. May the God of Peace be your companion in the upcoming weeks.
The past year has been one of turmoil yet it has been pretty placid. Tensions in the fabric have increased yet life moves along.
I don’t do resolutions but I do, do a few goals. Things I want to accomplish in the future. I don’t make so many or set them so high they are beyond reach. I have a few goals I want on a daily basis. Through the years they pretty much been there accomplished in my daily life. There is always my daily walk with God and giving thanks for Christ. Then to love my fellow man, even the enemy.
I wrote a couple of small books this past year and they were mildly successful on a local level. I am in the process of writing another one and hope to have it ready by the end of the month. I do self publishing, so I get to do all the layout and design work plus proofing. It’s a time consuming process but the after moments are worth it. It could be an ego trip, when I get compliments.
I will continue to to some photography and hopefully that will improve some as it has each year. Someday I may collect a bunch of photos and make a type of coffee table book. That is a bit of a dream.
The new year rolls out and I am but a passenger on a trip. I can voice my opinion and see what happens yet the trip moves forth. There are many things that happen I have no control over, so I voice my displeasure.
One of the reasons I don’t like resolutions for there are so many outside influences and they set one up for failure. Which quite often leads to depression.
Into the new year I venture forth, no great expectations.
Ya’ll have a great year.
