My year was filled with a lot of love.
I got to see my son one on one for the first time in 3 1/2 years. This was the most heart felt, overwhelming encounter. I missed my son so much and it meant everything to me to be able to look into his eyes, hold him and talk to him.
The birth of my first grandson was a life changing experience. I organized a baby shower, went to the OB appointments and answered many questions my daughter had as her mind got the best of her.
I said that I did not want to be in the birthing room, but I did witness the entire birth.
Being a Woman of God gives me duties and responsibilities. I felt less than when I did not complete my studies as planned in 2013. Not to mean that I did nothing, it means that I was needed elsewhere as instructed by God. You know the term "subject to change." I had to adjust to the fact that my plan was not God's plan. It all worked out and my studies have resume.
I have learned that I must choose by battles carefully. The enemy will attack to steal, killing and destroy. Everyone will not receive you when it comes to the Word of God. Do not debate with unbelievers, it will only escalate and get out of control. As a Christian I MUST STAY IN CONTROL with God's help.
My younger daughter has blossomed into this beautiful young girl. At the age of 16, she loves the Lord and is focused on her future about attending college. Dreams and admiration's keeps her fueled with hope. I admire her determination when she sets her mind on something. She is my star that shines the brightest at night in the sky.
I had a financial makeover this past year and I acquired some material items, but what really matters is that I am obedient to God's Word and take care of my financial commitments.
Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. (Romans 13:7)
My uncle died this year and I really miss him. R.I.P. Uncle Gene.
These are some of the things that made an impact on me this year. Life is good and I have no complaints. You learn as you go and if you don't learn anything , you're not living.
Be good to yourself in 2014. Don't sweat the small stuff and always, always put God first.
