New Year's Eve

This is it, the last day of 2007. In a way I am very happy to put this past year behind me and forge on to a new year. I suppose I could wax poetic about everything that has happened to me this past year. Or i could just say that I didn't just survive this year, but I lived it! That is a good feeling. Although, the first part of the year was the hardest, and saddest... I went through a break-up that should not have been unexpected, but it really caught me off guard, broke my heart and changed my life. The first few days and weeks that followed were like baby steps, teetering and tottering about, falling down and trying to get back up, and man I was so scared. What could the future hold? Could God possibly see this silly sad girl and not only help her but heal her? So many uncertainties! I read yesterday on Nothing But Bonfires about how she was so scared to uproot her life, but what she found was better then what she left behind. I love what she says here and how so very true:
"The thing is, when you’re bracing against something, when you’re resisting it so hard, when your expectations of how it’s going to be are the worst you can possibly imagine: well, something happens. It’s never really that bad."

Oh the truth in that is astounding. What i was most afraid of, and what i thought was going to be the worst time of my life, turned out to be the best time of my life. Filled with happy happy moments with friends new and old and new experiences. And most importantly a time to sit with God and talk and let Him love me and take care of me. It is by His grace that I am where I am... I still have a long (very long) way to go, but the beauty of His never ending love & grace is amazing! A few verses from the Bible, that absolutely got me through the dark times were, Psalm 126 & Zephaniah 3:14-20 .
Well I made it, and I expect to make it through next year and Lord willing the next and next years. I have no New Year's Resolutions. The things I should already be doing like eating healthy and exercising more are things that i continually need to work on. But this year I hope to strive for having less and giving more. Being continually thankful and hopeful for everything God has in store for me.
Happy New Year to you All! I hope this new year finds you blessed and living life to the fullest!
