Looking Back

2008 has come to its end. It was a very good year for me. It had its ups, and most certainly had its downs, but overall it was a very good year. As I look back at all the tears I shed, all the times I laughed, and all the moments of joy and pain, I think of how God was there by my side through it all. I think I can safely say that this past year has been the best year of my life.

But I cannot hold on. I've seen what happens when I linger on the past so much that I cannot enjoy the present or think about the future. The year 2008 was wonderful, yes, but what is stopping these next few years—or the rest of my life, for that matter—from being just as wonderful? If I linger too long, I will lose some of the most precious moments that God gives me. I must step into my future. It will soon become my past. In this story called life, we come and we go. The earth spins and orbits the sun. The stars shine and go out. Everything is in motion. God remains the same.

    I thought it was high time to check on your blog again. I always enjoy it and am so proud that you love the Lord and desire to please Him.
    I didn't need to be anonymous, but I didn't know what else to say.
    Love, Aunt Celen
