Happy New Year, sincerely, to ALL of my great blog pals.
This past year has been an enlightening one for me to say the least--I'll spare you the details. Just know, though you may not have realized it, you helped me through a healing process I had to work through both spiritually and emotionally. And I believe I'm a better woman/wife/mother/sister because of it.
I love laughter, and many of you made me laugh so hard with the experiences you've blogged about. Many, also, gave me spiritual insight on things I may have never considered before which has drawn me closer to the Lord. I've come into a better discipline in my prayer and devotions by joining a 24/7 prayer blog (remember the prayer request button on my sidebar). At times you made me cry, and instilled in me a greater compassion for the pains of others. You've given me a glimpse into the lives of your families through your endearing pictures. You've broadened my life geographically.
A great big hug to all of you!
As for the weight loss goal I had, no I didn't reach it. That last 10 lbs decided to hang in there with me right into 2009! And I'm not going to worry about it. I know it'll come off as soon as I forget about it, and do what I already know to do physically and nutritionally.
And now for the best news of all, my sis Reva is up and blogging again! She'll be happy to hear from those of you who visit her.
God bless you this new year. May the good memories remain always fresh and may you learn from the bad experiences and then let them go. Forgive where forgiveness is needed, for their sake as well as your's. I pray for healing and comfort to those who are in need, and the Lord's peace that can only come from Him be experienced daily.
It's All 2009 Good!
