Resolutions

So I didn't have any takers offering up their New Year's resolutions in my comments. But that doesn't mean no one made any. Here's a sampling of some I read about online. But first, a Puritan Prayer that I saw a few people tweet and post on Facebook:
 
 
I launch my bark on the unknown waters of this year,
with thee, O Father, as my harbour,
thee, O Son, as my helm,
thee, O Holy Spirit, filling my sails.

Here were my resolutions:
Here are some others:
  • Carl Jones (@Youthguy07) resolves to make this day the best day.
  • Justin Mosteller (@wearemosteller) doesn't like resolutions but thinks it's a good idea to plan.
  • Scott Williams (@ScottWilliams) encourages us to go big.
  • Tony Alicea (@tonyjalicea) is approaching this year (humbly) expecting to fail.
  • Herb Halstead (@herbhalstead), via Michael Perkins (@MichaelDPerkins), encourages us to simply let go. (no, this had nothing to do with resolutions, but it fit)
  • Cassandra Frear (@CassFrear) doesn't need any new resolutions for 2012, but instead is going to put into practice what she learned in 2011.
  • Matt Appling (@MattTCoNP) says the only resolution we need is to think. (Obviously some of us have problems in that area)
  • Jennifer Dukes Lee (@DukesLee) follows Paul's example to "resolve to know nothing but Jesus Christ and Him crucified"
  • Matthew Paul Turner (@JesusNeedsNewPR) tweeted, "Dear God, in 2012, let us love more, affirm more, lift up more, hope more, engage more, make peace more, & choose joy more. Amen."
  • Mike Donehay from Tenth Avenue North (@mikedonehey) tweeted, "2012. May joy be the new cynicism. May grace be the new resentment. May generosity be the new lust. May we live like everything's new."
  • And Billy Coffey (@billycoffey) wrote about a conversation he had with the devil on New Year's Eve.
So now you've heard all of ours, what are your resolutions this New Year?
