Your frantic festive preparations are now forgotten and you’re dealing with the come down and a lot of tidying up, possibly with a hangover and the sad reality that there are still a couple of days to go until New Year.
If you haven’t arranged a watertight schedule of visiting relatives then there is still plenty to do in these odd last days of December when you’re probably not back at work but just starting to get a bit bored and annoyed with the family.
So, what to do? Well there is lots you can do, you can sit and vegetate or you can decide to make the most of the time left in 2013. Why not go for a walk and spend some time thinking about what you want to achieve in 2014, if the weather is anything like it is here though wrap up warm. If that doesn’t appeal why not find somewhere to go and reflect on 2013 and again look forward to what you want to achieve in 2014. I am not a fan of New Year resolutions but it is true it does give us a poignant time to reflect and to look forward. I have a busy two days of study ahead of me before 2014 but I plan to spend some time reflecting on this year and looking forward to sharing with you tomorrow on those. It would be great to hear from you on your reflections and plans. Perhaps we could continue to encourage each other towards making our plans a reality next year? I think I have already shared with you when I received my call to ministry I knew that I was to start training within 3 years but 3 years down the road I was still saying in 3 years….. It is good to be accountable to others to keep us on track. I leave that decision to you. Thanks for reading!
