Though it’s hard for me to see how my new year is going to be very happy, I do wish a happy new year for you. I hope you are enjoying the evening with your family and friends and are grateful that the Lord has given you one more year on his wonderful creation.
Of course you guys know what I wish for in the coming year: kicking cancer’s butt! I pray that not only will God destroy the cancer cells in my body but those in the Jolly Blogger, Foolish Sage, iMonk, Matt Chandler and the other people I know in real life. I pray that we make it through the treatments and God grants us healing. I also pray that God will remind us of the peace we have in Christ.
No resolutions this year, the one thing I want to change is beyond my control. How can I resolve not to die? Anything I should change (losing weight, getting organized, etc.) really doesn’t matter when compared to my health. My perspective has changed. Though, maybe I could resolve to be hopeful:

ESV Psalm 42:5 Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation

What about you? Any thoughts on the New Year? Resolutions? Prayers?
