I've never been a maker of resolutions. I think that a far better practice than reserving reflecting on the past year and setting goals for the year to come, is to do that every morning and every night. To wake up each morning with intent for the day, to be kind to others and to apologize when I haven't been. To go to sleep each night noting all that I am grateful for and anything I need to ask God forgiveness for. That is how change happens. Daily practice.
If I must make one resolution, I want to make it a doable one. I have decided that part of gratitude ought to be thanking God for the food He provides. Since I live alone and eat alone most of the time, I have gotten out of the habit of saying Grace before each meal. I would like to put into practice a regular habit of being thankful and pausing to do so before I dig in.
How about you? What are your feelings about resolutions? Do you make them? or do you maybe have a different approach.
Leave a comment. Anyone who does will be put in a drawing for my book Mountain Captive. This is a pre release copy as it does not come out until March. The art department was spot on with this cover. Most of the story takes place in a Montana Town that gets so much snow that the residents get around via snowmobile. I feel like you can almost feel the cold when you look at the cover. The suspense of the story concerns a kidnapped child, the private investigator who is trying to find her before it is too late and a wildlife biologist who gets caught up in the danger. And of course there is romance between the P.I. and the wildlife biologist. One of my favorite things about this book is the town itself which is called Davenport. It's an isolated place frequented mostly by hunters and outdoors people. It is in many ways a the town time has forgotten. The town is almost a character in the story it was fun to write.
