Did you make any resolutions?
I am resolving:
1. To exercise (I'd say exercise more, but since I don't exercise at all right now, more would be a big exaggeration.)
2. Not to do certain chores that my Big Kids are old enough to do for themselves: put away their laundry and bus their dishes.
3. To take yesterday's Epistle to heart:
Brothers and sisters:
Put on, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved,
heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience,
bearing with one another and forgiving one another,
if one has a grievance against another;
as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do.
And over all these put on love,
that is, the bond of perfection.
And let the peace of Christ control your hearts,
the peace into which you were also called in one body.
And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,
as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another,
singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs
with gratitude in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, in word or in deed,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Col 3:12-17)
That last one is a tall order--even more so than exercising!
