The above quote from one of my favorite spiritual books provides a good source for meditation on this New Year’s Eve. As we look back over the past year, it is good to reflect on how we spent our time. Are there things we could have done to get closer to God? Could we have put our time to better use? For just about all of us, the answer to both of these questions is “yes”. Rather than panic, the best thing to do is make a resolution to improve in the upcoming year. Here are a few suggestions:
Get up a few minutes earlier and say some extra prayers.
I would recommend that you don’t take on too much in the upcoming year, instead concentrating on one or two activities that will bring you closer to the Lord. This will improve your chances for success. You can always add more as the year progresses. What is important is that we try to make good use of the gift of each day that is given to us by the Lord.
