Making History in the New Year

Country Road

I love the stories from the old days. I enjoy hearing about the Pioneers, the Colonists, the Pilgrims, the Victorians and all the people who lived before us.

There were different clothing styles, different kinds of work available, and different cultures. It is fascinating to learn about life in the old days.

Someday, what I am doing right now, will be the old days for future generations.

We must always keep in mind, that what we do each day, becomes History.

I want to take that thought with me in the New Year. I want to think more about what I can do for others, what I can do to create, and to help, and to be an example. I want to do this, rather than focus on myself, or what I could do better or what I could change.

This coming year is not about me. No year should have ever been about me.

Wonderful post! I think that, for these truths to manifest in my life, I need to focus more on what busy time-fillers can be cut out so I can spend time on the things that are really important. Thanks for the challenge!

Wonderful thought for the new year. I love history, too! The Colonial era, Pilgrims, Victorian -and earlier. Thanks so much for following my blog. I visited your blog a couple days ago and thought I followed. When I came here tonight - I saw that I'd forgotten to, so I'm so glad you found me! Happy New Year!!

Thanks for the inspiring post, Mrs. White. I needed to be reminded of the passing nature of my family's struggles right now, and the importance of helping others and ministering to others. Blessings to you!
