The New Year has come and all my resolves are tumbling over as I struggle to fulfil them
- Rule out the chocolate biscuits
- Pick up the French course
- Continue with the novel
- Increase my fitness
- Respond to the weekly fiveminutefriday prompt.
After weeks of grey clouds and drizzle the air is sunlit and sparkling today, turning humble objects into jewels, a frosted bench edged with moss, a car windscreen patterned with icy fleur de lys, dogwood stems fiery red against the sun dappled fence.
There is a promise of growth, a vibration of life, in the air. New things spring up and the world looks different.
We may determine to do many things in the dormant days of winter but in the stark clear light, what the Creator has purposed for our lives is what counts. I have learned, over the years, that it is not always what you might expect, as this week’s heading, taken from Proverbs 19 reminds us.
Wishing you an exciting and fulfilling New Year, safe in His plans.
