Christmas is coming...this week! I love it! And before we know it 2011 will begin; which means lots of people will make resolutions about everything from soup to nuts...almost..and most of them will be quickly forgotten...what do you think? Along those lines, here's something I am going to build on for the coming year:
I will watch my thoughts; they become words (Fill up with kind & positive thoughts)
I will watch my words; they become actions
(Learning to control my tongue...okay but that's a real biggie)
I will watch my actions; they became habits (No hateful stuff...
no turning green with envy...loving actions and reactions)
I will watch my habits; they become character (Difficult to correct habits/lots of work to do)
Last but not least I will watch my character; it becomes my destiny.
(Okay, I'm a character I know, but a Character like His? Can I do it?
If I try I know I can and He will help me; what an awesome destiny)

Michael has a book "The Jesus Habits" and I want him to read it to me...a group of men have been studying it together...it's good. What better habits could I have, could we have than those of Christ himself.
So..."you'd better watch out, you'd better not cry...better not pout, I'm tellin' you why? He's makin' a list, checkin' it twice...gonna' find out who's naughty or nice"...
Not concerned about pleasing Santa...he's goin' back to the North Pole. I'm concentrating on pleasing the one 'higher up'.
Balanced and unafraid...
