Be careful of your thoughts, 
For your thoughts become your words.

Be careful of your words, 
For your words become your deeds.

Be careful of our deeds, 
For your deeds become your habits.

Be careful of your habits, 
For your habits become your character.

Be careful of your character, 
For your character becomes you destiny.

Great is the Lord - Starfield

If all I've done
At last should come to nothing
And all I love, like sand be washed away

Still I will sing
Of Your unfailing glory
On bended knee
I'll lift my voice and say

Great is the Lord
Great is Your name
Till my last breath
I will proclaim

Great is the Lord
Great is Your name
I give my life
To sing Your praise

If You should speak
Or should remain in silence
Should give me light, or lead me through the dark

Whatever the cost
Whatever joy or sorrow
I'll worship still
Because of who You are

When death becomes
The end of all my labors
And Christ alone my rest and reward

May all I've done
Be one enduring echo
Resounding on to shout
Great is the Lord

Ready or not... here it is!


Maybe it's some sort of sign of getting older, or then a phenomenon that affects everyone as time grows older, but each year seems to go by faster. I tell you, soon I'll blink my eyes and find myself in a nursing home (as a patient! since I'm there anyways already...)

No matter how fast the years go by though I'd like to be able to look back someday and say that I've lived every moment to the fullest. Elämä on elämistä varten. 'Life is meant to be lived.'

I'm thankful to be able to say that I lived a lot during this past year :) 
And I intend to live even more this next year! 

May this year be filled with exciting opportunities, life enjoyed fully, new experiences, friendships, wisdom acquired, encounters with our Maker, and no regrets :)

Happy 2011!
