I can’t believe it is 2010, wow!! Christmas was peaceful and quiet. I cooked Asian food and my 2 children and  I had a fabulous dinner. Prior to that, the children unwrapped their gifts - they got everything they wanted and seeing the look on their faces was a great gift in itself.  

New Year’s Eve was spent rehearsing and then singing during the evening service at church, after which my daughter and I adjourned to my friend’s house, where we brought in the New Year with food, games and fireworks!! The ladies beat the men at “Taboo“!

I cannot begin to share the tremendous amount of blessings I have had this past year. Yet I am expectant of even more in 2010 because I live in God’s economy. I have been out of work for 6 months now and sometimes, I feel so disheartened but I pick myself up and persevere. I have been to numerous interviews and several have given very positive feedback - “we will call you or we will recommend you for the second interview“, but all has come to nought. Still there are some freelance jobs, thank God.  

This is a new year - a year of new beginnings. I start on a positive note because no one else is in charge of my happiness except myself. I began this year by removing clutter, by reorganizing, by staying busy the whole day, by sending out messages and e-mails to friends and family, and by staying indoors. I have always been careful with my finances and I will continue to be frugal. Still, I am very blessed - if I showed you all that I have gotten these past months, people would not believe me. Yet, my God will supply my every need... and more... according to His riches in glory. He has never failed me, nor forsaken me.

I have goals and visions and I hope to be even more fervent in prayer, worship and reading the Word. But I also want so very much to help those in need - not only to provide the “fish” but to “teach them how to fish” so that they will not be hungry.

I will spend part of tomorrow celebrating 2 birthdays - my friend’s and mine - I did not allow him to splurge on my birthday in October and said that we will split the costs and celebrate it on his birthday on January 2nd. I thought it was a wise decision! He was flabbergasted but agreed and can’t wait for tomorrow!!

I enter 2010 with a new spirit, hope and renewed faith; I enter this year with a positive attitude that no matter what happens, in 5 years time, it will not matter. I enter this year with great expectancy... In 2010, I will begin my new career!!

May all here have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

    • You know....your kind of attitude will carry you through anything!!  I love it!!  I’m sorry you have been through so much but you know and I know God will meet every need and he will use you and your situation to glorify Him.  Some people do not understand faith.  They think if they can’t actually see it...it doesn’t exist.  We can’t see the internet either but we have faith in it now that it will be there for us to communicate with one another.  Having that faith that God will provide and be right beside you every step of the way is the key to living.  

      I am confident in saying that God is using you right now in this very blog.  God Bless You...Happy New year...and Happy Birthday!!

    • Confidence in God is in my opinion the best way to start a new year on a positive note.
