An Alternative to Resolutions
I do find, however, that there’s something natural and encouraging about starting a new year with intentionality for that year. So one of the ways I will be purposed in the new year is by taking time to contemplate the past year. It’s an alternative that works better for me. And in fact, it’s a good way to make the happenings of the old count for good in the new. On any given day.
