As the last little bit of 2009 winds down, and the first decade of this millennium comes to an end, it's the time of year to reflect on the old, dream of the new, and commit to a re-alignment of life. It's the reason New Year's resolutions are so popular this week.
Most of the U.S. is under a blanket of winter weather, which gives us a great visual of what's to come. The temporary death of the trees, the grass, and the crops, gives us hope the newness will emerge with even greater fervency.
So as the last week draws to an end, I just wanted to take some time (all week) to spend on reflecting on the beauty of newness. The Braner family has experienced A LOT of newness this year. Some good. Some not so good. But one thing will remain, the beauty of the hope all things will be made more vibrant in the new year.
As you read the posts for the week, feel free to join in the reflections. Add new ideas, re-think your own positions, and together we can re-imagine life the way it was intended to be.
Look forward to hearing from you this week.
