2012. Can you imagine?
A new year, a new beginning. People will make resolutions for change. Diet, exercise, give up smoking, etc. This is a good time to look back and look ahead. To see if we like where we are headed or if we need to change our game plan. A new calendar opened up with so many possibilities and adventures that lie ahead.
2011 was a tough year for me, you guys all know why. It was a hard year but God is faithful and saw me through and helped me grow in lots of areas.
In looking at the magnitude of what still needs to be done here, I foresee 2012 being a year of change. I awoke with a feeling of anticipation today, of hope ahead. Have no idea what is in store in the new year but I know God does and I will trust his wisdom and plan and timing.
I'm closing a chapter of my life. First let me say he is perfectly healthy as far as I know and I don't anticipate anything changing in the days ahead. But I'm retiring my blogging buddy, my faithful companion since I started blogging back in 2005. Its time for Koda to take a back seat and for me to embark on new adventures in my writing.
I love to write, I love to read God's word and be inspired by the messages he is teaching there. I like to ponder things as I sit and type or edit those medical reports that I do.
I'm going in a new direction with blogging in 2012. I know that I won't have the time in the months ahead to devote to blogging like I did in previous times but I still feel the need to write and put my words in such a format like a blog for whoever stumbles upon the words I write or chooses to read them.
I started a new blog, A Bench With a View. I'm just going to write there thoughts. No obligation to read, no obligation to comment.
I know these days I look at my Dashboard and read a lot and comment on just a few. I would imagine that will be the pattern in the months ahead. There is so much work here to be done and so much healing and restoring, but God is merciful and faithful and is working miraculously in so many ways.
So read if you want, follow if you want. I'm looking into putting my Fear of the Lord blog into book format for me to save and am looking at the same concept for this blog. It will eventually be deleted or made private. Its been a wild adventure and a great experience writing here, but it is time to move on.
Thank you all who have read this and commented on it and shared this journey with us. Its been a privilege and honor to have you part of it.
If I see you over on Bench With a View, great. Regardless, Happy New Year to one and all. May it truly be a great year for you and your family!
