What change do you want to make in your life in the New Year?

As the new Year approaches, we all make resolutions. We all look to the coming new year as an opportune time to make changes in our lives, to make things better, to mend fences, to become happier.

So we ask you, what is your New Year's resolution? What is the one thing - or several things - you would like to do different to make your life better for yourselves and for those around you.

Share it with us. You can sign anonymously if you wish.

And while you're at it, we also encourage you to share a short prayer - from a few words to a couple of sentences - so we may help remind each other that God is always with us in good times and in bad. And that His abundant love will always be there just waiting for us.

God bless you all and may you have the happiest and most blessed New Year.

    I resolve to always try to find quiet time with God every day. I know I can squeeze in a few minutes of my day in prayer to Him but I've been quite remiss in the pat years. Dear Lord, please help me understand your plan for me every day.

    I pray that 2007 will be the start of the blessed years ahead for my children. My 2 daughters who are about to exit highschool, my son, who's embarking both his higher education and the work force, and my oldest daughter, who recently became a mother and a home maker.
    May they contnue to keep a close watch on each other, and bond forever.

    I resolve to dedicate more time to learning/re-learning my catholic faith and what I can do to bring GOD back into my life everyday.

    Spend time - really quality time - with my family. That's first and foremost.
