I read a really great post the other day on BlogHer that inspired this post. I can't find it to link to it though, my apologies to the original author. :)
I'm not a New Year's resolution-er. I really never have been, but this year I've made a very short list.
Just three things.
Three little things I can do to make the world a better place.
1. No more paper or plastic. I'm going to purchase enough of these handy totes, which keep popping up at every grocery store I shop at, so that I will not need to use disposable bags. Now, we reuse our bags and recycle them back at the store when the pile gets too big, but we can stop. And we will stop. This year. In the grand scheme of things I know this won't halt global warming, but it's a start.
2. Recycle. We haven't recycled the entire time we've been married - 6 years. I'm pretty sure that it was illegal to -not- recycle at our last house, but we never got caught. I just got off the phone with Public Works and our shiny new bins will arrive next week. :)
3. Read the New Testament in 2008. This one is a little more esoteric, but stick with me and you'll see how it fits. I have a deep desire to be more Christ-like. By committing to reading His words and his vision for my life I can only get closer. And if I'm more Christ-like, the world will most definitely benefit from it. Care to join me?
