Happy New Year

I hope that each of you had a joyous holiday season and welcomed the new year in with love, peace, and joy in your hearts. I did and am happy to embrace 2008 and all of its infinite possibilities.

Here's a few things that I want to share...

0 and 8 are both symbols of infinity. In this new year, be obedient to God's will in your life; optimistic about it, and observant to know when your blessings are at hand. (received via txt from a friend)

Learning from experience is a faculty almost never practiced....Barbara Tuchman.
Let's hope that each and everyone of us proves this theory wrong.

There is a reason each and everyone of us are still alive to see 2008; please make sure you don't make the Lord regret His decision. Live your life to the absolute best of your abilities. Do not allow your weaknesses to overcome your ability to fight; love with all your heart; display your finest attributes; pay it forward, and be purposeful and purpose driven. - Blu Jewel

Make realistic goals for yourself, write them down, pray about them and try to achieve them! (via email)

Go through your cell phone, caller id, calendar, and email addresses and discard all the people and events that mean you no good or don't benefit your life! *less can truly be more as you'll want quality over quantity*(via email)

Take care of your kids and devote a weekend or two when you spend "quality" time with them. Who cares if you miss out on a "mix"! You can party anytime! (via email)

Stop forwarding all the text messages you receive; everyone doesn't have unlimited text messages!! *HAD to post that (via email)

Lastly, if it's only 5 minutes a day have a little talk with Jesus! Let Him know you want to be better today than you were yesterday and watch Him turn things around for you! (via email)
