Speaking of life, we went to church this morning and it was packed! All the new years resolutions to get to know Jesus-all good! Anyway, the story was about Solomon the king and about starting over with a Tabula Rasa. One definition I found on the web was, Commonly attributed to John Locke, the concept of the mind as a tabula rasa, a ”blank slate” as a description of the human mind before it receives the imprint of experience, is deeply rooted in scribal culture.
What is interesting is that we use a fresh new year to start essentially all over again from various points in our lives. It's the same thing that Jesus Christ does with our SINS each day is he wipes them away with his blood that was shed on the cross for us.
It's back to work tomorrow and I am looking forward to what lies ahead in 2010. I am anxious to try and see how successful I can do in the PNW for my tennis this year. I am setting a goal of finishing in the top 5. I KNOW I can do it. I am also determined to get my weight down to 200lbs or under from 213. I am printing out my chart to write down my daily weigh ins to keep track.
Have a great first week of 2010!
