|Isaiah 43:16, 18-19“This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

In a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Emmons found that when people kept a gratitude journal, they were happier. So much happier, in fact, after a month of daily journaling, they showed a 10 percent increase on subjective happiness—that’s the same jump in happiness you’d expect if you doubled your income.
A great habit to get into for the new year! 🙂
I don’t think exhausted is the right word, but the quiz didn’t give me many options. I like to stay home on New Year’s Eve because it’s a madhouse out there, and I’d much rather stay home where it’s nice, quiet, and safe. If I was going to go to a party, it would be one I hosted, and I’d make sure to have enough room for everyone to sleep over. No driving!
|You Should Stay Home for New Year’s Eve|
| By the time New Year’s Eve comes around, you are usually exhausted. You just need to rest.
That doesn’t mean you won’t celebrate, but you’ll definitely be toasting the new year in your own low key way.
You’ll reflect on the year that’s passed and make plans for the year to come.
A farmer named Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside except for a pet dog he had for many years.
When his dog sadly died, Muldoon went to the parish priest, saying: “Father Patrick, my dog is dead. Could you possibly say Mass for the poor creature?”
Father Patrick told the farmer: “No, we can’t have services for an animal in church. But I’ll tell you what, there’s a new denomination down the road, and – no telling what they believe in – maybe they’ll do something for your pet.”
Muldoon said: “I’ll go right now. By the way, do you think $50,000 is enough of a donation for the service?”
“Oh, why didn’t you tell me the dog was Catholic??”
Hahaha, cute! And you know, all dogs go to heaven! 😉
