Good Intentionals

I am NOT making a New Year’s resolution. I have found they don’t work for me and, in fact, cause more problems than good. Yesterday in church Dan, our associate pastor, talked about taking off the old self and putting on the new self (Colossians 3: 5-11), which is a great scripture for this time…
