Happy New Year,
I don't know about you, but I today seemed like a new day, a new beginning.  I mean, during the day I would do something and remind myself that this was the "1st time" I did that in 2009.  So by the end of the day, I was doing things just so I could say to myself, that's a good start to a new year.  

So many things change over the year, as each day goes by....I think back to the first of the year when Georgia was the preseason #1 in the nation... and just today, they finished the season at #15... winning the Capital One Bowl against Michigan State.  Things didn't end up like they had hoped... too many fumbles, penalties, miss blocks, dropped passes, and the list goes on.  But after todays one season ends...the next starts...and now they can dream again of a national championship...

In many ways that is the same for me.  All the failures and mistakes that I made during the past year are now gone.... as the ball touched down in New York last night, signaling the end of one year and the beginning of a new year, the past was left behind.  I get to start over with a new CLEAN slate.

I look forward to this new year.  I get the opportunity to begin things ... again... for the first time.  To apply the things I learned from last year and do better this year.... Loving God, Loving my wife and children, loving and serving others, and taking care of myself physically, mentally, and spiritually.

What things are you looking forward to getting a new start at?  let me know.
