Over the past couple of years I have decided that the week between Christmas and January 1 is my favorite week. There is just something about this week that invigorates me. Here are some of the reasons why:
1. The chance to look back on the year and thank God for His many mercies.
2. The chance to look ahead and make some fresh committments and adjustments to my life. I am still old school and think New Year's resolutions are good and healthy.
3. The slow pace. Unless you work in the retail business, this has to be the slowest week of the year. No one is in a hurry to do anything. Many people are off work visiting with family. Others are taking down Christmas decorations.
4. The leftovers!
