My New Year’s Resolution
December 30, 2013 35 Comments
2013 may have brought a lot of tears for you.
Maybe it brought a lot of prosperity and happiness.
Maybe it was the year you met God. Maybe it was the year you fell from Him.
Maybe you got married, had kids, got a promotion.
Or got fired.
2013 means different things to everyone.
For me, though, whether it was a good year or a bad year, I resolve to let 2013 be the worst year of my life.
I lost my temper one too many times this year. I snapped at my wife too often. I yelled at God.
We also got a new puppy this year, and we upgraded most of our electronics. I read 30 books and discovered a bunch of new music.
We visited Nashville, Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, and other states.
We attended no weddings, but also no funerals. And we celebrated the birth of several friends’ babies.
But regardless of all that, I resolve to let 2013 be the worst year.
And 2014 is going to be the best. Because I will snap at my wife less, date her more, and although I don’t care much for Louisville, Kentucky (compared to other parts of the country), I will live like this is our last year here and we have to see and do everything.
So come on, 2014. Bring it on.
The apocalypse may happen this year, whether by biblical proportions, or by zombies, but 2014 will still be the best.
Because of two things.
and by praying more.
