A wonderful year

A new year has arrived. It is a time to reflect back on the past year and to give thanks for the many blessings it held for us all. It was a year of new transitions and for some of us a relocation. It was a time of self discovery for some and a road to recovery for others.

For some dreams were fulfilled and battles won. It was a time to learn new vocations and to set closure in motion for some of us. It was a year of gratitude remembered. To be there for others in their need. To share in love and friendship.

For some it was a time to end painful relationships and to begin again. It has been a year to discover what truly is important and a realization that God will provide when we cannot. It was a year to release fear from our lives and to strengthen our faith.

It was a year of greater awareness for many of us. It was a year to stop worrying about the "what ifs" and to be grateful for the "what is". For many of us it was a year of greater spiritual growth. Of learning to trust in the synchronicities in life and to look for the lessons we need to grow through.

It has been a year to speak more openly of our beliefs and to learn to listen more clearly to that still small voice within. It has been a year to ask for guidance and of revelations. It has been a year of encouragement, evolution, and revaluation.

Many people have learned that things don't bring them the happiness they thought they would and have begun to look inward instead of outward for the joy they seek. More people are reading and more spiritual books are being written. May the year ahead bring more new beginnings and true faith.
