Welcome to the year of our Lord 2014.
When I was a child, thinking about this far into the future had me believing we would all be living like the Jetsons.
We would be so far advanced in technology, that we'd all be flying around in jet propelled space cars, have personal robots to do our bidding, we'd all live in the sky with everything we use daily being automated, and we'd be able to communicate with others via video.Well....

Some of that seems to have come to pass. No Jet cars, but there is a lot of automated "stuff" these days. Robots clean the floors...
And Skype and Face Time are popular ways of visiting those who are far away.
It really is amazing, you know? But still, as a child, I would have thought we'd be exploring the galaxy by now.
We'd all just make reservations to take a little trip into space, just for the fun of it. Sort of like going to the beach on vacation. Not yet, even though we do actually have folks living on a space station that orbits the earth. Who would have thunk it?

In any case, I have a few goals I want to reach in 2014 and I hope and pray I am able to follow through. Not resolutions, as they never work for me.  If I resolve to DO something and don't, I've failed. "Goals" seem more likely to achieve and less stressful. If I don't reach the goal, at least I've tried and have made progress. I'm going to think on them a bit more and maybe put them down here to mark off as the year goes by. Or not.

HAPPY NEW YEAR my friends!! God bless you and your families in the coming year.
