Happy New Year

We are on the precipice of 2011.  It’s time to make resolutions.  This is a challenge for many people, myself included.  Part of the reason is that it seems like such a futile exercise, yet I’ve read that although people more often break resolutions than not, they are also 10 times more likely to achieve them than people who don’t make resolutions.

So now the challenge becomes what to resolve?  There is plenty to accomplish in this new year.  One of the biggest challenges is to post on this blog more often.  Eventually, I want this to be connected to our church web site.  So my hope is that it will be interesting enough for parishioners, and others who stop by our web site to read.  Reflections on daily texts always make an interesting topic.  In order to do that I obviously have to become more conscientious about reading my daily texts and being faithful in my devotions.  So there!  I’ve made the resolution publicly, and I encourage anyone who should read this and find a day missing without a post to call me on it.

I ask God to help me.
