Oh the pressure of the first blog post of the year!

January 11, 2010

Maybe this is why ‘bloggers’ give us archives when on holidays, to ease the pressure of starting up again.

This post won’t be grand, but rather a simple plan.

As I looked at the year ahead, the things I wanted to change, the things I wanted to continue, and the things I wanted to tweak, I kept coming back to one simple (but difficult) idea.

To give.

Give freely, without complaining, my energy, effort and love to those close to me. Both those I have chosen and those who are just there.

Give away more things that I make.

Give things I have, but have no need for, to people who would benefit from them.

Give myself a break and not analyse too much.

Give myself over to a full bellied laugh (or cry) as the desire takes me.

Give myself fully to trusting God and his good purposes for me.
