So my resolution-free New Year started about two hours ago! And even though I'm well aware that feelings are deceptive, I have a genuine 'undeceptive-like' feeling that this year will be a Great Year! I spend my New Year's Eve having a potluck dinner, a get-together and a midnight service with families nearby campus. And my 'teetotalling' New Year's Eve continues!
I've been tweeting that the smartest thing I've done in 2011 is turn on my e-blanket before I left for the New Year's midnight service! Now I'm safely tucked into my warm bed, calling it a night. Tomorrow (or today??), I'll be up early to help cook for the New Year's Feast. Ah!! I can't count the years I've been a ruai fatu, let me recall, my first ruai fatu year was in 2000, back home. That's more than a decade ago!! But I've been singing praises for the Christmas ruai fatu(s) a week ago, so for New Year's I decided to join them and be part of the team that feeds the multitude.
And though there's no resolution this year, there has to be a bible verse. I'd be lost without my Yearly Verse. So this year, I picked a well-known verse I've been dwelling on for the past month!
Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.Isaiah 40:31
"Waiting". A theme much needed for someone as impatient as I; a word to reflect upon for someone like me who doesn't know when to slow down!
So before I run away with my lines and stay up for another hour,
Happy New Year 2012
May you have a blessed and fulfilling year
May your Sorrows be less and your Joys abundant
May you learn to be thankful for each day this New Year holds!
