Entry 16: "One Week, Six Days, and Counting!"

WOW, sorry i haven't been putting a whole lot on my blog lately!! School has started so that has kept me on my toes and we are getting ready to have my dad home in one week and six days!! It has been a long year! One that from the distance would seem lonely, cold, painful, and colorless! But when you look deeper and at the detail you see much more! Even though it has been painful to have my dad gone I have grown closer to God, my friends, and i have learned so much! Now i wouldn't want it to happen again, naturally, but i can see how God has used this for my good even though my dad had to leave for a year!

I can't THANK YOU ALL ENOUGH for all your prayers, kind words and comforts the past year! It has been such a blessing to me!!! It has been a long year that i am ready to let go and wish good-bye, but i will still hold on to all that i have learned through it for the rest of my life!!!

God thank you for sustaining me through this past year and never letting me fall out of your arms! To be all the praise and glory given!!!

It's so exciting that day is getting closer and closer!! I'm glad your able to look back on it as growing you! That is a great attitude!
"Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance."
James 1:2-3
One of my favorite verses that points to what your saying!

Wow! It is getting close! I always like to look back on trials that happen in life and see the good that has come out it all. It puts a whole different perspective on when at the time it just seemed like a really hard thing to go through.
Romans 8:28 speaks of this as does the verse Micah shared.
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
Be of good courage my friend!
PS Glad to see another post... give your Daddy all your time though when he gets home!! Don't worry about us your blogger pals and friends... =D
