This Year…

2016

I want to give more than I take,
listen more than I speak,
heal more than I hurt,
empathize more than I criticize
(starting in my own head before a word leaves my lips).

I want to be generous —
with my money, with my time and with my heart.

I want to practice patience and calm. And more patience.

I want to assume the best…the good…the innocent in others.

This year I want to be less about social media and more about social connection.

This year…
I want to tip the scales: to do things, think things, dream things, live things –
that have more eternal value than earthly gain.

This year…
I want it to be less and less about me – and more and more about the One who created me.


God willing, we get 365 days…how will you use yours?
