My New Year's Resolution
This year I am going to bring out the rose colored glasses of mine and clean them off and see if there are any cracks in them. I'm going to repair them and make sure they are in tip top shape. I don't want to miss anything. My motto is GOD IS EVERYWHERE in EVERYTHING. I'm going to continue to write what I'm grateful for in my grateful journal. If you look for God you will find him in everything - I believe that. Whether it be something as simple as bread or complex as human body. He is there. And you know what - seeing God - having a relationship with him - makes me joyful. I am going to try to be a joyful Christian this year. And I hope to inspire me and I hope to inspire you.
This video doesn't have to do with anything Christianity - but it is about inspiration. I think sometimes we might get down at Christmas or once it's over. They say that Christmas for some is the most depressing holiday of all.
The reason I want to share this video with you is that it shows you what you can do - for yourself - no matter what has happened in your life. You never have to give up. Not everyone can or will do this - BUT you can figure out your own something. For me it was starting my grateful journal - written TO GOD - everyday - five things - for some 20 years now. And while I still do get down and while my life is NOT perfect - I feel joy. I am happy inside. I still have a close relationship to HIM - because I see HIM in everything!
Okay enough - I haven't done enough thinking the last two weeks and I's over dosing in it today.
