    We all know habits are hard to change, but each year its a tradition on January 1 to try to do something differently. Our intentions are heart-felt. Weve thought through what we want. Were motivated by our suffering or our desire to be better in some way. Why do we fail to fulfill our resolutions? One rea-son is that we dont give them tender loving care. When we buy a plant, we water it and put it in the proper sunlight. So far so

    good. The plant does well for a while and so do we. Then what hap-pens? The plant and our conviction start to wilt. Life and other pri-orities get in the way. But dont give up. Meditate on the re-sistance along with the desire to change, ac-cepting both. Ive found that the dissonance will begin to fade, and sometimes it disap-pears completely. Meditate every night on what you might want

    to change and have that one thing be some-thing that will grow your relationship with God. Do not get frustrated if you mess up here and there. Each night check your progress and re-member, Tomorrow is a New Day, A New Chance!!! May God Bless You in 2016!!!

    Blessings,

    Rev. April
