January—it's a peculiar month. The days are getting longer, but the weather gets colder. We have more snow, but often there's a January thaw. Maybe it's just to remind us that there's room for everything, that even when events seem arbitrary there is order and progress, and that we are not in charge. For myself, I've learned from many Januarys that it's better not to make resolutions, but rather to seek guidance from the Spirit and to follow it.
