There was a time I did the resolution thing —  a list of “to do’s” for the coming year!

And I guess I still do — but mostly at a point when I realize I need to change a particular action.  The big push for New Year’s to be the day of resolutions has waned.

But that does not mean I do not take inventory at this time of year.  I’m in agreement with an email my wife received from Christian Women Today

“Rather than centering your focus so much on what you are doing . . . ask God to help you get fresh insight on what you are becoming. . .  Make your own “to be” list this week.  Mine looks like this:  Be thankful . . for little things; Be joyful . . by choice;  Be patient . . deliberately; Be kind . . on purpose. . . As the being takes place, the doing will automatically happen.”
