Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I'm only 27 days late in such greetings & salutations. Hope it's off to a great start for you & yours - dreams, aspirations, resolutions & such.

I must say things have calmed down quite a bit since my last post on December 9th. Seriously. Life was just spinning out of control as I tried to keep my head about water with obligations, responsibilities & commitment. I think I regarded too lightly when my mother used to say she was having a nervous breakdown. There is a reason folks say that. I was struggling to breath, hoping to emerge with some semblance of a smile & my sanity intact.

I love the light at the end of the tunnel. I love that all things work together for good to those who love God & who are called according to His purpose. I love that He has a plan; a plan to prosper & not to harm; plans for hope & a future. I love. Even when I want to hate, I love. Even when I hurt, I love. Even when I'm confused, I love. Even when I'm tired, I love. Even in my questions, I love.

He loves. Even when I want to hate, He loves. Even in my hurt, He loves. Even when I'm confused, He loves. Even when I'm tired, kicking & screaming; He loves. Even in my questions, He loves. That is the bigger thing. He loves. Always. End of story. Really. It is the story, the beginning to the very the end of the story. He loves. There's nothing bigger or better that that. I'm so thankful.

I'm going to write a little here & there. I'll not worry about catching up under the guise of leaving the past behind me & moving forward. However, for Gracie's sake I must update this journal of Grace Full Days of our 1st lost tooth, ballerina dances & such.

Happy 2011! It's off to a great start. My vision is fresh. My strength is renewed. My feet are steadfast. It's going to be a good year.
