I can’t believe January is over and we are already a few days into February! This past month has been a whirlwind of activity for me, and I am doing all I can to buckle up and hold on. When God starts handing out the blessings, you better be ready to receive them, because when they begin they rain down on you like a boon monsoon! I have my head back and my hands open, and let me tell you what, they are flowing right over me!
All of January, I have been ensconced in training for my job as a travel agent, I have shot one wedding and have several more on the calendar as well as other photo shoots, and I have several new ventures and opportunities for writing. Work continues on my new website and travel has been booked for even more exciting opportunities.
Sometimes, I have to pinch myself. I can’t believe where I sit today in comparison for where I was this time last year. Most all of 2012 had hardships I never want to face again. My marriage almost ended. I came very close to losing someone dear to me. We sold our house, moved to a new area, saw a son move out onto his own and more. 2012 was the year that all that didn’t serve me was stripped away, plus losing many things that I thought DID serve me. While it was happening, I didn’t think I could take another blow, any more stress. Now that it is over, I can’t believe I walked through that fire and came out the other side without being completely burned. Don’t get me wrong, I suffered my share of blistering, but I am still standing and now that I can look back and see what I have come through, I am even more proud of myself and thankful for the faith I had in God. He knows where I stand, He knows I put it ALL in His hands, and for that, He in turn is showering me in good, with more good to come. His grace blows me away!
