There's generally a lot of talk about new year's resolutions in the first weeks of January. Some people make heartfelt resolutions and take them very seriously. Others are just as adamant about NOT making any resolutions. I like to make easy resolutions that I know I will keep (like, eat chocolate every day, sleep at night . . . )--it's kind of a morale booster after the crazy holiday season.

This year, though, I'm wondering what would happen if I thought less about what new thing I want to do and more about what new things God is already doing within me and around me. What if I set aside New Year's resolutions and focused on New Year's recognitions?
So share with us your thoughts about "new things" as we begin 2013:
What are your thoughts on New Year's resolutions in general? On your New Year's resolutions in particular?
