Be It Resolved
By Neil M. Travis, Montana/Arizona
In 2009 I resolve to remember all the blessing that I have in America. I
will remember those who fought and died to allow me to speak my mind, to
travel where and when I desire, to vote for those who would represent me, and to
be secure in my home. I will not forget that Memorial Day, the 4th of July,
and Veteran's Day are not just vacation days, but are times to remember
and reflect upon those who gave their all and the freedoms they bought
through their sacrifice.
In 2009 I resolve to see my world through fresh eyes. I will stand in awe
and look at God's creation through new eyes. I will endeavor to live for
today, being cognizant of the past yet not dwell in it, and mindful of tomorrow
but not be anxious about it.
In 2009 I will take time to stop and smell the flowers. I will not be in
such a rush to do all those 'important things' that I cannot stop to take
note of what passes beneath my feet.
In 2009 I pray that God will allow me to spend a few days casting a fly to
a rising trout, and I pray that He will grant you the same privilege.
May all my readers find ample reason to be thankful for all our blessing in
2009. ~ The Chronicler
