Do you remember that movie Groundhog Day? The one where Bill Murray repeats the same day over and over again?
That is the way I always felt this time of year. Except mine went like this:
1) Eat lots of cookies, cakes, pastries.
2) Wash that down with eggnog.
3) Repeat until there isn't so much as a sprinkle left.
4) Make New Year's Resolution to exercise and lose all of the new-found weight.
Every year it was the same thing. And every year I had the same New Year's Resolution.
Until last year.
Last year I decided that I needed to start exercising my soul, and resolved to read the Bible. I am proud to say that, thanks to the Daily Audio Bible, I kept that promise. (For those of you new to my blog, I listen to it in my car every day.)
Empowered by this very small victory, I've decided that every New Year's Resolution from now on will include a religious component.
Every year I want to grow closer to God. To do something more for Him in the upcoming year than I did in the past one.
I guess you can say that I never want to have a spiritual "Groundhog Year" again.
I'd love your help as I look to write mine for 2010.
Any ideas? Are you making any Spiritual Resolutions for the New Year?
