(Jewish) New Year's Resolutions
But in the past couple days, perhaps beginning with services, I have found myself becoming more hopeful.
This is the gift of prayer. The old adages: Prayer changes things. Prayer changes people. Prayer changes me.
This year, I resolve to believe the best about the world, no matter what I see, hear or read.
This year, I resolve to breathe more. And if that is not physiologically possible, I resolve to breathe more consciously and purposefully.
This year, I resolve to love, especially when it's hard and when I don't want to.
This year, I resolve to live in the love of God for me and for the world.
