“The end of something is better than its beginning.” ~ Ecclesiastes 7:8a
It seems almost impossible to believe that it has been an entire year since I first sat down to start this project. A lot has happened in the past twelve months. Amazing things. Little things. Out of the ordinary things. Average things.
And all in all, it has been a wonderful year.
Not wonderful because life always treats me perfectly, but wonderful because I can look back on an entire year of walking day by day with my Creator and see the incredible things He has taught me and done for me.
When I started this project, I think I had hoped that it would help me understand why my husband died. Well, 365 days later, I am not one step closer to understanding why. However, I do know that I am a year closer to my Lord and eternity with Him, and I am slowly coming to the understanding that, in the long run, is what really matters.
Of all the resolutions I’ve ever made, I think this one I am proudest of keeping. I’ve made lots of resolutions in my life and have even kept a few, but of all of them, this one is the one that has had the most impact on my life.
I hope as 2011 draws to a close, you can take a moment to look at back at all the ways God has blessed you in your life. Be thankful for all He has done and all He will do for you, His child.
