Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone!
2014 was a year of many trials and revelations for us this year.
My husband had back surgery due to an old injury. It took him six months to recover. It was difficult to see this pillar of strength in my family be in so much pain.
During this time, the doctors found a spot on his knee which they thought was a rare form of cancer. But it all of a sudden turned out to be benign....yeah right! I think the Lord had something to do with that.....just saying.
My daughters are having a difficult time going to church. They tell me that they want to live for the Lord, but are uncomfortable and non-trusting of certain individuals there. They tell me that some have spoken very badly about others in church. They said they don't want to be around that. I know that they have been deeply wounded by some of their peers. At least I know that my daughters know how damaging the tongue can be. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. The tongue truly has no bone in it....that's why it's constantly flapping in the wind....
I'm trusting the Lord for this situation. My girls are getting older and they are going to have to make that decision in their lives whether or not to live for the Lord. I can no longer carry them. All i can do is try and set a good example and pray pray pray!
So many other things have gone on this year, but I fear that this post would be way too long.
I love the New Year. It's a chance to start anew. It's a chance to be better and get things accomplished.
In 2015 I want to......
Lean more on the Lord....surrender to Him....get into His word more.
Take more time for me.....it's okay to say no or not now maybe later. I need to focus more on my health and my weight. My goal is not to get into a bikini. My goal is to be healthier, physically fit, flexible, and stronger.
Just laugh and have more fun. Live life. Enjoy my family!
Get a little more organized....one project at time but never letting it consume me.
Through it all, the Lord has been there watching, waiting, guiding me. His presence gives me peace of mind. It soothes me and relieves me of all my fear, stress and anxiety. How can I not be eternally grateful for His wings of protection? He is truly my comforter.
I am so in-love with the Lord! (And I mean that in the most respectful way)
I am thankful for all that He has brought me through. Thank you Jesus!
I am wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year. I hope that 2015 brings you all a fresh new start with the joy and the hope that we are not alone. God is always there watching and guiding us!
Blessings to all!
