For the past two years, life has rushed past in a blur. Changes came to us fast and furious, and we found ourselves in a new ministry at the end of 2010. We quickly made plans for 2011, and we hit the ground running at the beginning of the year. I felt like I was always trying to catch up with the year, and by the end of the year, I was worn out.
As I was thinking about beginning a new year, I knew that I wanted to slow down and live life on purpose. We can't slow things down so much - the work of the ministry and family life goes on - but I can make plans and be more prepared for things so that I don't feel so rushed.
So the beginning of my goals for this year - my word for 2012 - is purpose. I want to live each day with purpose.
Do you have a word to characterize this year? Do you make goals or resolutions for the new year?
