I will just start with the challenge.
“In this new year I challenge you to do something you have never done before!”
This past summer some family came to visit and so we took them to the beach. One of the things I like doing at the beach is flying a kite so I brought one along. After putting the kite together and getting it airborne I asked a family member, “would you like to fly it?” To my surprise this family member responded that they had never flown a kite before. I was blown away. How could this be? I promptly helped them fly it, which they enjoyed, but kept asking myself how could it be they never have flown a kite before. They are missing out! Not anymore!
This is where the challenge comes back to you. In this new year I challenge you to do something you have never done before! Learn something new like riding a bike, growing some crops, making a sock puppet, a new language, how to dance, building a website, driving a tractor, memorizing scripture or your favorite quotes, raise some chickens, cook a new dish, learn fly a kite. I challenge you to stand up for that co-worker who is always picked on, write an encouraging letter to someone that you do not see eye to eye with, give a huge tip to a waiter or waitress that does not deserve it, give a huge tip to the one who does, write that book you have always wanted to, share your real dreams with your spouse or friends, pray openly for someone, take a homeless person to dinner wherever they want to go and get to know them then pay them for their time, forgive that friend or family member, give away something you really like, take a risk and do something you have never done before. I challenge you!
