Friends I hope the New Year will bring you many blessings. I've decided I need to Save this year. Boys howdy, do I! Here's a list, it's not complete but will be a work in progress.
I want to save scripture, and hide it in my heart, so I'll have when I need it.
I want to remember the good times, so when times are not so good I will have them to remind me and help me go on.
I want to save time, and stop squandering something that goes too fast, so I'll use my time for good for others when I can.
I want to develop some good habits, and let others fall by the wayside.
I want to save my money for the right things, and let go of excess baggage, buying stuff I don't really need.
I want to save myself some heartache, and tell people I love them now, and not live with regrets later because I didn't tell them.
I want to save many words, because not everything needs to be said, and listening well is an art.
I want the Lord to lead me, instead of being headstrong and heading down my own path, wandering around in the wilderness.
I want to offer encouragement, not discouragement, and save other people tears and pain.
I want to make this year the very best I can, and as much as possible live in peace with others. I want to save my hope, and not let doubt and fear rule my life.
I want to save my joy, it is too precious to waste.
You get the idea, save all you can, lose what you need to, spread the good, and not the bad. Keep looking up, and remember Jesus loves you!
