Today, January 6th, marks Epiphany. According to the Christian calendar, this celebrates the journey of the Magi upon the birth of Jesus. As the holiday season is officially over with this day, there is a reset (or rebirth) in time. Perhaps it is because of this that for me it has always been a personal spiritual new year.
Epiphany marks a time for me to look within myself and really see who I am, and work on who I want to be. This isn’t a time of resolutions, but rather personal reformation. I look at both the positives and the negatives of who I am. I work on figuring out what I need to do to become a better person for myself and for God. Only then am I able to be of good use to others.
I hope to accomplish some things in 2015. While some things have to do with directly strengthening my relationship with God, others are of a more human nature. I have several chronic health issues including Rheumatoid arthritis, Sarcoidosis, and lung issues. However, I want to become healthier, stronger, and more physically comfortable in my own skin. I believe that some of those things can be accomplished with diet and exercise.
On McGuffy’s Reader, I will still be joining memes and hops, though perhaps not every time. I do plan to work on my writing. I want to share more poetry and stories, but also my thoughts and musings, too. My blog is not an autobiographical blog, but I do want it to be a reflection of what I believe and what is important to me.
I will also continue my advocacy of animals. Their well-being and their welfare are very important to me. I advocate for them both in my daily life and in social media. I welcome you to check out McGuffy’s Reader on Facebook, too. It is still a new page. I will be posting many animal related things there. I want to make a difference for God’s creatures in whatever way that I can.
With each Epiphany on the calendar, I seek epiphanies and revelations about my world and myself. I really want to accomplish being a better person.
