Courage

 

Guten Abend…..Lots going on around here….Firstly…I was reading my dearest friend’s blog…and I was pondering the question of what will I name this new year?  I’ve heard about people recently naming their new year..I thought about my new year.  Already it seems life is planning it out whether I like  it or not…

I’ve decided to name my new year…2012 Year of Courage!   Courage to learn a new language, to travel alone with my kids, courage to get through the long and lonely nights ahead of me, courage to build new friendships, courage to face this year with two teen boys now, courage to get through three more semesters of school, courage to pray through the storms and the valleys that lay ahead of me.  Courage to do the right thing in moments of weakness. Courage to find the good and positives in all my circumstances.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Excellent choice for a name! I would say that should have been the name for 2011 for me when I left my Nor'easter nest and came down to the sunny south. But, then again, I didn't know about naming my year. Who knew?

Hey, I got watery eyes when I read your last comment. Hugs sent your way, truly can't imagine being you right now facing another big separation. Courage isn't easy but its good. Reminds me of Chronicles of Narnia. "No, he isn't safe, but he is good." Hugs to you courageous one! Stay in touch! BTW, still can't find you on facebook. (but then again, I am not on their much anyway)
