Here's to a new year
The first day of the year 2011 landed on the Sabbath, a day of rest. Maybe it could be an example of what we should reflect on for this new year, rest from the worries of life. Every year you hear people say that this new year is going to be better than the last, and somehow at the end of the year it didn't turn out as they had hoped. Why? Do we set too many expectations, unrealistic resolutions, or do we look at all the negative instead of the blessings? I' m not one to make new years resolutions, because to be quite honest, no one really sticks to them, and in turn causes more disappointment.
I have come to a point in my life where all I want is to have peace and happiness in what I have. I know that everyday can't be peaceful and happy but I if you learn to be happy with what I have and the blessings I receive, life won't be so disappointing. This past year brought new changes for our lives, my husband got a new job and has us relocating to Florida. After 6 years in Louisville we are moving, leaving behind friends, our first home and all that my two boys have known ever since they were born. At first I was very sad to have to relocate and not at all excited about going back to Florida, but I realized that, if you let Him, God leads you were he wants. I have to make the best of where we end up, you know what they say, "when life hands you lemons make lemonade." Six years ago we moved to a city were we didn't know one single person, and now, that city is our life.
It is said that the only thing that stays the same is that everything changes. No one likes change, but sometimes we need it.
