The title of this post is from a familiar hymn, one that we sing at this time each year. This is the time when we make resolutions--lose weight, do better at (fill in the blank), whatever--and metaphorically turn over a new leaf.
I've given up on new year's resolutions. Most of mine have the life expectancy of a chocolate chip cookie at one of our family get-togethers. Rather, I periodically become aware of areas in which I need to make changes. When that happens, I resolve to try to improve. Sometimes I succeed, sometimes not. But, to me, it should be a year-round process.
What about you? Any new year's resolutions? I'd love to hear.
