Another year has come to an end and its difficult to understand where the time has gone. I can’t believe that it already has been 3 years since I wrote my 2013 New Years Resolutions post HERE. As I was sitting in bed last night reflecting on 2015 it dawned on me that you just NEVER know what the future holds and what God has in store for you. If someone told me last year that I’d get engaged. I would’ve told you that you’ve lost your mind and you should go and find it. The truth is, you can never be ready enough for life’s surprises…you just have to learn to adapt and embrace every moment – good or bad.
2015 was the hardest year of my life! With everything that happened on the Barbados trip, to Michael leaving the country, then getting super ill from stress and exhaustion, and lastly, my grandpa passing away (on the 30th December 2015.) I was planning a trip to see him, and now this! Sigh! Through these events I learnt what it means to recieve strength from the higher source because to deal with all of the above in my mere mortal state, I think I’d be in a mental home. I learnt so much about myself, good and bad. I learnt that lawyers are bloody expensive lol. More importantly, I’ve gained a deeper understanding to this passage in the bible:
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
I learned family is so important, and I’m going to work on getting closer to them. I’m forever thankful for strength for God. I’m so looking forward to 2016. I have no idea what it holds, but I know that a lot of dreams will be accomplished.
Thanks for sticking with me through my toughest year, and being so supportive. I’m so thankful for each and everyone of you that read my blog, whether you comment or not.
Love you xxxx
