Out with the Old, In with the New!

Have you ever really wondered what this saying truly means? How do you get rid of the old? Sometimes the old can be a good thing. For example: good habits of brushing your teeth, keeping dishes washed up, or having a certain day your family comes over for fun family time are old habits you want to keep. Every Tuesday night is pizza and a movie night at the Gibbs Homestead. This habit has been ongoing for several years now and gives us a night to enjoy one another. It is a good thing to develop healthy family time habits.

It is also a good thing to develop new healthy habits. The word of God says it like this:   “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

As 2017 comes to a close and 2018 begins, I take this time to challenge you to develop some new things in your life. I chose to invest in a planner that I could have a little fun with. As I set goals for this year I choose to keep track of them and keep them simple: read a new book monthly, clean and shine my kitchen sink every night, do a load of laundry a day, drink at least 4 glasses of water a day, and the list goes on. I know there will be days I fall short but that’s OK. I am made new in Christ Jesus daily.

OUT WITH THE OLD ME, IN WITH THE NEW!!!!!!!                Happy New Year!

Here are a few websites I hope will help as you seek to have a prosperous, peaceful 2018.
