That’s my final answer for 2016.
I gained great insight throughout this past year and honestly, more than I desire to share.
It has been a year of learning about myself, others and relationships in general.
Maybe it’s because I’m another year older and view life from a totally different window now.
I know all too well that people can be unkind and relationships can be messy, but this year I resolved to accept this truth differently than I have in the past.
There are some harsh realities of relationships but this year served as a culmination of my personal experiences.
I am one to love hard and look for the best in people but I realize that even with my best intentions, people will be people.
I ask the Lord to NOT allow my experiences to change who I am inwardly. Instead, Lord, help me to see people through the Cross.
I don’t want to hold on to anything negative, so I choose to take the lessons and the insight and move forward in love and in wisdom.
My year was filled with several blessings blended with disappointment but nothing wasted.
Every blessing, every disappointment and the insight gained will be used for a greater purpose.
As always, I end each year with reflection and I look back with gratefulness.
God is still holding me and my family and for that I am grateful.
May each of you experience more of Christ in the coming year, along with more of His love, His grace and His power.
By His grace, I’ll meet you in the 2017!
