Count your 2012 blessings before the New Year; SM Foundation supports high school graduates of Catholic parish schools


By

With New Year coming in two days, let us write down our blessings in 2012 and thank God for them. First, the gift of life. Second, sustenance and nourishment. And the gift of family. If tragedy struck us during the year, let us offer it to God and accept God’s plan for it. Then, we have our jobs that give us income.

Instead of resolutions, let’s set goals


By

Another year is over. Almost. Seems like 2012 just sped by in a blur. Suddenly we want to play catch-up. We have not done enough, perhaps, and now want to do more. We see where we goofed and itch to do damage control. A little more thought could have helped. It is too late.

A year for gratitude

For 2010, it was grace, and true enough I found it in abundance that year—in the events that conspired to make things happen, in the people I met, in every little blessing that I was given. For 2011, the word given to me was surrender. All throughout that year, I found myself in situations that helped teach me the very difficult lesson of learning how to let go. Although there continue to be times when I continue to grapple with it, overall, at the close of 2011 there was no longer any fear—that I could let go of whatever it was and God would catch me, or provide for me, each and every time.

By

To begin a new year right, I think it’s important to end the year right. You can start by finishing all pending responsibilities, so that you can begin with a new slate and not be bogged down by carryover holiday deadlines or unfinished business and loose ends.
