GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Did it happen?
Did you blow it already?
Maybe you absent-mindedly sipped some soda this morning. Perhaps you filled up that mug with coffee out of habit. Or just popped a few Christmas cookies into your pie hole for breakfast without thinking.
Then again, maybe you accidentally went off on the nimrod in front of you going 10MPH in a 45MPH no passing zone. Okay, that was me and I resolved to curb the cussing in 2018. Yep, sometimes the Grateful Girl swears like a sailor with scurvy. #notproudofit It mostly happens when someone acts like a dunderhead in the car before, beside or behind me ...or the Cavs are on a three-game slide and we've got Boston coming up. Come on, guys, you are killing me, you dig?
But, the thing about Resolutions, whether this year or any other, is that, unlike that fermenting egg nog in the back of your fridge, there's no expiration date. It's okay...it happens. It doesn't mean you have to throw in the towel on the second day of the year, yo.
Grab your BFF and ask him/her to help keep you on point with your self-promises. Then, smile. Breathe. Start again. Resolutions come with an automatic resent button, capsice? You got this.

Jn 1:19-28 This is the testimony of John. When the Jews from Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to him to ask him, "Who are you?" ... He said: "I am the voice of one crying out in the desert, 'Make straight the way of the Lord,' as Isaiah the prophet said." Some Pharisees were also sent. They asked him, "Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ or Elijah or the Prophet?" John answered them, "I baptize with water; but there is one among you whom you do not recognize, the one who is coming after me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to untie." This happened in Bethany across the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
