Fresh Courage Take

All over social media there are shouts of goals and resolutions and mottos for a New Year....

Stellar ambitions really, but we are the Kramers and who am I  kidding. I can't even consistently feed our blue goldfish...sorry Flipper. And the kids haven't independently remembered garbage day since...well ever...goals really intimidate me...

In all honesty, 2015 intimidates me...What if its another really hard year? I can't do another one...

Fresh courage take...Robin... was the answer that hit me hard this morning.

Fresh courage take.... a line from the hymn "Come, Come Ye Saints", first sung by our pioneers....

Gird up your loins; fresh courage take.
Our God will never us forsake.
And soon we'll have this tale to tell-
All is well! All is well!

So I actually looked up what "Gird up your loins", meant,  'cause I never paid attention  in Seminary, Sunday school, Church
"To prepare and strengthen oneself for what is to come."

Well that makes more sense than I thought it would...

So us Kramers have no new goals or resolutions, but we do have a family motto for 2015{because I'm the mom and I said so}

"Fresh Courage Take" - that's the only thing we need to do this year :)
