There are some who use the new year as an opportunity to make lifestyle changes by making resolutions. I am not one of those people.
I have tried over the years. I really have. But I think the longest time that elapsed between making the New Year's Resolution and breaking it was maybe a week. I guess I am more of a 'go with the flow' kind of person.
That's not to say that one should not have goals. Goals are a good thing. I have goals. One goal is to increase my food storage to have two years worth stashed away. Another goal is to make sure I have enough of other essentials that may be needed within that time frame.
The New Year is nearly upon us. I have seen 73 of them. Some good - some not so much. But I am thankful to God for allowing me to see each and every one of them. I pray He will give me a few more.
None of us knows for sure what 2020 will bring. Those who are oblivious of the world situation are convinced all is well. Those of us who pay attention know better. But whatever happens, we would do well to be as ready as possible.
Hope for the best - prepare for the worst. And pray.
