This year has been perhaps the greatest and worst year of my life so far. So its quite a big task to write about it. Hopefully in the near future I’ll figure out how to do that but for now let me say I am glad it is over – although the wait for results is going to be long….
Having reached the end of a tumultuous year I need to give a big thank you to everyone who has loved, prayed for, supported and encouraged me this year. You have made this year a little easier and a great deal better – I hope I can return the favour sometime. And enormous thanks and praise to our our great God who has blessed me with the gift of wonderful friends – I hope you all know who you are!
“Two are better than one because they have good reward for their efforts. For if either falls, his companion can lift him up; but pity the one who falls without another to lift him up.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
Loving that you have a blog – especially that i’m in your profile pic.
So glad you survived the year – can’t wait to see what God has in store for you in the years ahead xxx
I only wish I could have made the picture bigger!
Yeah – it’s been a year, all right.
Get it down on paper… seriously, go out, buy a good-quality notebook with GOOD paper stock, get a pen for it… and write. Good, bad, ugly, raaaandom. Keep it private, throw down your heart, use it as prayer.
I don’t do diaries, but i’m learning just to get it out. On paper. I go back to my private thoughts later, and it’s amazing what you can use for other people later on.
I’ve just had the most shattering privilege (and I’m not even certain of that phrase). A new couple to our church lost their boy at 36 weeks… they asked me if I’d take the funeral, which I did. It’s one heck of a way to learn how to do funerals, and I don’t think Keith Condie would be able to prep us for that one.
God bless the next year. Great you made in in one piece.
