A Good Year

I just celebrated my 52nd birthday on the 12th of this month. My coworkers gave me a lovely party, with wonderful gifts (mostly gift cards, which I LOVE, since it prolongs the fun); my husband showered me with cards (he kept pushing them under the door in whatever room I was in) and gifts and flowers. For the past month, since before Christmas, I've been feeling so much better. I'm not sure why, but I think it's my greater attention to the things of the Lord Jesus Christ. During my time off from work (16 whole wonderful days!) I read inspirational fiction, studied the Bible, prayed, listened to Fernando Ortega music (so beautiful) - and dropped the worry, anger, jealousy and fear I'd allowed to sneak in around the cracks of my soul.

When I went back to work last week, I was afraid that my peace would all go right out the door, but that didn't happen at all. So far, so good - I don't want to let go of the peace the Lord has given me, and I pray that He doesn't let ME let it slip away.

I hope to have more pictures soon - it's supposed to be cool this weekend, which is a perfect opportunity to get out into nature again - plus, it's a 3-day weekend. Yay!!
