For some, New Year’s Day is a time to be festive; for others, it’s a time to be reflective. I tend to be one of the latter. So, shall I include you in some of my mind’s musings this morning? Nothing intensely profound, simply the path my thoughts were meandering.
In a nutshell, I was thinking that what lies behind is but a memory…what lies ahead is still a mystery…but this moment, aptly named “the present”, is a gift from God. This year, I want to be more intentional about seeing my moments as gifts to be lived intentionally and gratefully.
And speaking of gifts, one of the presents that I give my folks each year (they’re bird nerds too) is a calendar with pictures of backyard birds taken throughout the previous year. How about I share the ones that made this year’s edition?
And for the cover…these guys were chosen…
Happy New Year…and may God bless you with many wonderful moments in the year ahead.
