Recently I scribbled some of the following down for some people and I thought I'd pitch it out your way? Lists help me in the ageing process ;-)
Try these out for size!

- Don't start things in life you aren't willing to finish
- Love everyone, but be careful with deep trust
- Learn deep faith in God through all the difficulties of life, faith during good times means little.
- Read the old dead guys, proverbs and the gospels a lot.
- Be who you are and nothing more or you will end up being less.
- Be serious about being devote and holy.
- Listen well.
- Enjoy the little things of life.
- Measure yourself by how you treat the least in your world.
- Live in God's Word, not your opinions or the latest fad.
- It's a sin to bore people with the Word of God which is the most relevant information in the universe.
- Have accountability & friendship where you can be 'drop dead honest'.
- Find something to do that brings you joy apart from ministry.
- Realize that truly there is 'no peace no joy no thrill, like walking in God's will' To live is really all about this Jesus thing!
- Record all your adventures along the way! Do the disciplines & journal!

Phillipians 3 says it straight!!
"forgetting what lies behind & straining forward to what lies ahead."
"I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."

"But one thing I do:".

As the African proverb states.. "if many little people, in many little places, do many little things; we can change the face of the earth."
Here's to God's continued revelation & revolution in your world this year!!  CR
