My motto for 2012 is:
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each year find you a better man.
Happy New Year Friends! We need a new year like we need a shower each morning. It is a fresh start. When I wake up with bad breath, bed head, rested eyes and the sun rising over my shoulder it is clear a new day is upon me. I love to get cleaned up and ready to go. I give my teeth a good scrub, rinse my mouth with minty fresh cleanser, lather up my skin, and wash all of yesterday away. I lotion up, start my hair with a hot blow dry, and reapply my make up. I find clean clothes and comfy shoes. It is a new day. A new year similarly allows us a fresh start. We can put 2011 to behind us and look onto a new year.
As we plunge into 2012 with Grace Full Home our theme for January is, “Becoming a Better Man”. Let 2012 find us a better man. As I step into 2012 I rest knowing, I do not know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11. Lets spend time in places, with people, reading, listening and doing things that make us a better man.
When I find myself in Jesus, I fade, he shines.
Welcome to 2012. Here we go! I am looking forward to doing it together. Bring it!
