We have heard and know that the life we are living is uncommon, not favored, or sometimes rejected. I guess that's what you choose when you choose to follow the will of God.
P off to his first day of school!
Here it is, the end of 2010 and most would look back and contemplate what they have accomplished. In reality what should be thought of is the amount of grace you have received, and what have you done with it. If there is one thing that I have been blessed to learn this past year it would be self accomplishments are nonexistent. We can accomplish or receive nothing with out the grace of God.
I thank Him for the grace of;
1. My job at Dallas Seminary- the high calling of being apart of furthering God's Kingdom through a school that sends countless missionaries into the world in one way or the other.
2. My husband- we have learned so much this past year together, I still question why God allowed him as my life-time partner.
3. Family- for their love and support in more that one way!
4. Friends- old ones that still encourage and new ones that are eager to engage!
I say good bye to 2010 and laugh at the crazy things that have happened; Kaepo learning the difference between growl and bark, our fun trip the the emergency room when I almost cut off my finger, the three...no seven jobs that I have had, and two moves (which may be an all time low for us!).
Somewhat speechless, I take a deep breath and face 2011 with the comfort of knowing whatever happens, my God is in control of each and every situation. I look forward to being a student at DTS (yes I am doing it too!) starting in January, encouraging my husband through his career as graduate student, and to move as little as possible !! : )
I hope and pray that every one's Christmas and New Year's is full of the realization of God's goodness and grace!
