Easter 2015, with its symbolism of new life, second chances and God’s Grace rushed up upon us too soon. Yet I came away from it deeply refreshed, hopeful and excited for the year ahead. It is almost as if Easter time is a better time to fully grasp the real impact of what was set in motion by January’s “new year’s resolutions”, goals and objectives.
I think this is so because by the time Easter comes by, the year is not that brand new anymore, one has made inroads into some of the goals set for the year, seen some successes and tasted some victories.
I see Easter as a time of renewing and strengthening of the “vows” of new year’s resolutions, dreams and objectives. This then encourages one to push onward! By this time of year, one has also ironed out the wrinkles in the set plans, twitched the day to day activities and one feels a bit more settled and geared for the year ahead.
So as the days of 2015 march on, may we daily chip away at what we have set out to achieve for this year. I know full well that this is not always easy, but let us not lose hope and especially not VISION!
“Where there is no vision, the people perish….” Proverbs 29:18
