For me, January has always been my “do over” month. A time to reflect on what is good and what needs to get better in the area of attitude and habits. The beginning of the church year has been walked through beginning with Advent. All the carols and hymns and decorations and beauty surrounding the celebration of the birth of our Savior.

Jesus is our most special “do over.” Because of his birth we have the opportunity to, one day, live in the perfect world that God created for us. Moving from Christmas to a new year has always seemed like an easy step forward for me. The focus on a new year is to resolve to do some things better and get rid of some things that are dragging you down. Reflection and revitalization seem to go hand in hand.

Then I would move from Christmas to New Year, to my birthday. Another time to reflect and reorganize and see what needs to be kept and what needs to be let go. Not physical things but attitudes and habits and what kinds of choices will make life better.

Moving into 2019, I encourage all of you to join me in a little internal housekeeping. What are some habits and attitudes that need to be moved aside for new and better ones to take their place? What are some habits and attitudes that need to just be refreshed and made new again to take us through a new year?
