2007 into 2008

The journey that we go throughout a year can be quite arduous but rewarding. I am not the same person that I was a year ago...all because the work of God! I learned to be completely honest and bare before God and let him speak his guidance and affirmation over me. These words from Mercy Me encouraged me this year:
"To hear you say, 'This one's mine.' My heart is spoken for."

Highlights of 2007
-birth of writing
-renewed friendships with a couple high school friends
-breaking free and learning how to speak directly to a controlling friend
-starting new friendships...especially with Elizabeth
-my brother dating Rachel
-PUSH Physical Theatre Apprenticeship
-accountability with Laura...bringing honesty and vulnerability to a whole new level
-high grades for fall semester
-getting revelations in Scripture and prophecies from the Lord
-birth of true contentment

lowlights of 2007
-losing a friendship due to my mistake of taking things into my own hands
-putting Faithful, our 14 yr old black lab, to sleep
-deaths of Sam and Karen, two Hope students

Derek Levendusky challenged me to not make a resolution about what I'm going to DO this year, but rather who I'm going to BE.
So my goals for 2008 are:
-to live a life worthy of the calling that I have received
-to be an imitator of God
-to be a child of Light
-to be an encourager
-to keep in this journey of contentment
-to be one who makes the most of every opportunity and has no regrets!
