My husband and I began the year with him laid off of work (almost a year total), to begin a job making a phenomenal amount of money but we both hated it, to being offered his job back with a company we both absolutely loved. He took the job and started back working days only to discover that he is now (and for the next year) on nights.
The year started with us trying to find a place in our church and ended with both of us serving faithfully in capacities that we really feel called to.
We have grown closer as a family, closer to our church family and closer to God. It has truly been an amazing year of growth for all of us.
And I have to admit that it has been a wonderful experience sharing my life with you, my reader. I feel that I have grown close to some of you. I have had the privilege of sharing your experiences as well. You have at times encouraged me with wonderful words of praise, you have lifted me up at times that I needed to hear a friendly voice, and you have at times even validated me. Thank you.
I look forward with eager anticipation to what He has in store for me and my family in the coming year. I know that like this year I may not always like the situation that I will be in, but I also know that God will provide for me and that everything will have a purpose.
So Happy New Year to each of you. Hug your families, let them know how much you love them, and most of all remember to thank God, especially when things get difficult, because His plans are such that will prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
