The year closes...

My year...52 Saturdays. .

I once said "my life is a testimony to the truth that God is good, and that the best is yet to come." I once again believe and am persuaded of that.

This year has seen one job change, one move, one layoff.

I survived two of the greater self-inflicted adversities of my life, sadder but wiser, and blessed to have learned my painful lessons so cheaply.

(This time between jobs is merely a lesser adversity.)

I have hope in a good God who has good things for me, and makes all things work together for good.
I am relearning faith...learning to trust God while desperately wanting to get my theology right, neither casting the Almighty as my personal genie nor "a God who didn't care / That lived away out there"
I love and know I am loved. As I heard on the radio dozens of times growing up...
You are loved with an everlasting love. That is what the Bible says, and underneath are the everlasting arms.

By His arm, by His Word, by the friends He has put into my life...I am persuaded that God cares for me.

Happy new year, friends.
