Happy New Year!
We have simple plans in store for today: Eating Mr. Santos' favorite snack - crab and artichoke dip - and sipping sparkling cider from fancy stemware we picked up at the thrift store. We'll probably play a few rounds of "Go Fish" and watch It's a wonderful life. Santos Times tradition is to pop a few firecrackers before we go to sleep, but we don't always make it to midnight, (LOL). I wonder, will this be the year that Jesus comes back?
My new years resolution is to die. Die to myself that is.
What if I took this year and didn't care about my wishes as much as my husbands? What if I cared more about my children and their character than satisfying my desire for quiet or order? What if I loved my neighbor more than my schedule?
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it Luke 9:24
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:39
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it. Mark 8:35
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. John 12:25

What are you looking forward to this year?
