Horizons – January 2019

I suppose many of us are starting into this new New Year with our very own list of resolutions, mostly having to do with diet, exercise, budget-keeping, and so forth. If so, I wish you well with all of those noble thoughts and with the determination needed to carry them forward well into the year.

At the same time, I want to suggest a more modest approach.

A friend of mine has a pinned a small note card where he’ll see it each day as he heads off to work or other pursuits.  It asks simply: “What good shall I do this day?”

“What good shall I do this day?”

What if we each do the same? Might prove to be more do-able than loftier goals–some days harder than others, to be sure, given how life has a way of unfolding.

Still, my hunch is that the intention alone will create yet another way for the light to get in, and for the light of God to shine through us each and every day.

What good shall I do this day?

May the Year of our Lord 2019 bring peace, hope, joy, and light to one and all.
