Wednesday, January 5, 2011
Today is January 5, 2011. It is only five days since we welcomed in the New Year. Have you wished anyone a “Happy New Year” since January 1st? On January first (and maybe on the second) we bid each other a prosperous look towards the future. Well, why not continue to bestow greetings of great expectations until maybe “Happy Valentine’s Day” rolls around?
Try it! Continue to say, “Happy New Year” to the grocery clerk, to your doctor, to your hairdresser & manicurist and yes, even to someone you don’t know who passes by you in the street or at your local department store. You will be amused & amazed to see the smiles and maybe even a few puzzled looks of confusion. What harm will it do? It may be the only positive affirmation that the person will receive all week. “We can say Happy New Year this late in January - It’s gonna be alright”.
Even though the world continues to come out of a “recession”, we as Christian believers still, have no connection with it. Continue to pray for those who do not know Christ. Continue to "Thank God" for all that He does for us and others - only if we allow Him to.
And if one of your “New Year’s Resolutions” is to read the entire Bible in a year, consider going to this site from Vivian Herron (Bible Study Examiner) and subscribe for daily email notifications. Here you will also have a chance to participate in discussions on the Daily Bible Readings.
What are your expectations for this New Year of 2011?
