New Year's Resolutions

I would not normally make a big deal about New Year's resolutions but here in this short blog post I will make a brief exception. This morning Arwen and I got up- after sleeping in- and prayed together. We are committing to each other to pray with each other everyday. This may sound like an obvious thing to do but the truth is that most Christian couples do not do this. I will let you know how we get on and if we learn anything inspiring I will share it.

On Jan 3erd we head out to the Gray Havens to have a series of meetings with the rest of our region. I am really looking forward to it. We need the break after the busy holiday season- which was unbelievably busy but very rewarding. I will return to Gondor on the 14th and will resume blogging some time after that. When I come back I intend to continue storytelling as usual but I will also be adding more posts on strategy and theology as it meets life here on our team.

So, until the 15th of January I will say have a very happy end to your holiday season and as 2008 kicks off may you deepen your walk with our Lord Jesus Christ each and every day.

Happy New Year Strider. You are right in not all Christian couples pray together. If there are resolutions to be made, that is probably one of the best.

Debbie- Thanks, I agree that this is a very important resolution indeed.

Crescenet- I think I recognize you from Guy Muse's blog. Thanks for stopping by. I don't speak Spanish but I think you are inviting me to see your blog which I will certainly do.

Hi Stryder, Just wondering 5 months later how your resolution is holding up? I think that is a wonderful resolution to make. My husband and I don't pray together nearly enough, and definitely haven't made a regular time for it. I wonder if May is too late for a NY resolution?
