What resolutions did you set for this year?
 

Happy 2018. What resolutions did you set for this year? My year came in with a bang as my father in law had a heart attack and had triple by pass open heart surgery on January 2nd. I’m hoping things will slow down now and I can have a “do over”.

Like me, someone of us aren’t sure how we feel about a new year. But 2018 is here, whether we like it or not. Sometimes it can be scary, sometimes it can be exciting, and most of the time it all happens at the same time. If you are looking for a do-over, it may be time for a “redirect”. Take a listen to one of my Ministry Partners, Gail Showalter, as she encourages us to be intentional about our 2018.
