To be honest, I rarely make true New Year’s resolutions.  I am more of a daily resolution sort, every day noticing places for improvement and resolving to make the necessary changes.

If I resolve to make a lot of sweeping changes in my life at the start of the year, I will just fail.  I continue to pray that God would use me however He sees fit, and that He would raise me up on those days when I don’t feel that I can heed the call.

I am dreaming though, as I’ve mentioned, for a greater degree of order in my life this year.

Today being New Year’s Day, I paid attention to my usual resolutions.  There weren’t many.  I can always make more tomorrow:

I resolved to supervise Beatrix more closely when she is painting.

I resolved to make more lists.

And, I hoped for more time for tea and knitting.  That’s all.

What changes are you hoping to make in the new year?
