Wow, it’s 2012. The beginning of a new year…it’s a time we often look to “new beginnings, do overs, resolutions, change” and it usually begins with diet, exercise, finances, habits…..improvements. All of this is positive and good, if we stick to it and make the change. I believe everyone can make a decision to improve one’s life. Diet and nutrition are a great place to start. Exercise usually is a little harder and the one that wane’s over time. But, it is essential for good physical and mental health. You don’t have to go out and join a gym, or throw all the pantry food away…start with reasonable goals….cut out everyday sweets, bake/broil instead of fried, no fast food or choose the healthier choice…..walk a 1/2 mile three days a week.
12-17 Oh! Teach us to live well!
Teach us to live wisely and well!
Come back, God—how long do we have to wait?—
and treat your servants with kindness for a change.
Surprise us with love at daybreak;
then we’ll skip and dance all the day long.
Make up for the bad times with some good times;
we’ve seen enough evil to last a lifetime.
Let your servants see what you’re best at—
the ways you rule and bless your children.
And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us,
confirming the work that we do.
Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!
