At the heart of most resolution making, I believe, is the hope that this time we will find a solution. To whatever things we struggle with, whatever bothers us about ourselves, whatever is wrong with us...don't we just want to be fixed?
And so we run the risk, with resolution making, of finding out that in fact there is no amount of resolve in all of the world to fix ourselves...to finally, once and for all, correct the problem of us. This fact has found me. But grace has found me more.
I find myself wanting more than ever to resolve to work hard and devote myself fully to each day that will lie before me in the coming year. I've never been able to handle a collective 365. Perhaps just one?
First resolution of many in 2013--laundry. Lots of laundry.
Happy New Year, dear friends!
