Happy New Year!

Enjoy life more, worry less
Listen more, talk less
Smile a lot, cry a little
Care about people, not things
Take time to relax and don't feel guilty about it
Read the Bible more, the newspaper less
Talk to God more, but don't ask for so much
Watch TV less, read good books more
Trust God, not man
Go fishing, don't worry about catching anything
Look for ways to send "thank you" cards
Fear will come, trust God when it does
Walk in the rain and don't use an umbrella
Meet new people, they need a friend
Travel if you can, read about it if you can't
Read a biography this year
Give money to someone who needs help
Don't be so critical, God will sort it all out
Be merciful, you will want mercy in your own life
Be kind, it makes life easier
Be patient, relax, enjoy your life
Have a great year!

First thank you of the year - goes to you! Thank you for your consistency, faithfulness, and good works. You are definitely finishing well ... may it take you many more years to get to the end.

Happy New Year to you and yours.
