12 months, 52 weeks and 365 days, what a year has it been!
Time does run fast... so fast that it's as if I was on a speeding train nearing my next destination so soon that I haven't even slept yet! 2017 was a year of many unexpected events for me and my family. There were twists and turns in between, and I truly and honestly cannot thank God enough for the many majestic ways He has provided, protected and cared for each and everyone of us.
My 2017 was surely a year of learning new things, taking risks, accepting changes, and most of all, instilling an attitude of gratitude. When 2017 started, I took this challenge called "thanks-living". It was an idea from a devotional I read at that very time and I'm so glad I was able to go through it the whole year.
The challenge was to write about something that I was thankful to God for in every single day. I'd roll the tiny papers and keep it on a jar, or in my case, a container. The great thing about this is that I get to be thankful even for the simple things like being able to wake up the next morning, being able to move out and about, and all the other things we usually take for granted. Although not everyday is as bright as the other days, through the "thanks-living", I get to divert my attention from all the worries and focus on being grateful instead.
Because I loved doing the "thanks-living", I decided to unroll a few papers and read about what I was thankful for at the time.
Thanks for making it to this portion of the internet. I am truly grateful to each one of you for reading my entries! Most of what I've written here are unspoken words — words I wish I could've said or shared with anyone in person but has remained in my heart until I was able to write it in here.
My life's full of downs than ups, but through it all, I have seen and tasted the sweetness of God's grace and love. With that, I can tell you with a convinced heart that God is faithful, He is good and He never runs out of love for you and for me. Hope you enjoy your read(s)!
Rest if you must, but don't you quit!
