“And I will send showers, showers of blessings, which will come just when they are needed” ~Ezekiel 34:26
This year was by far the best year and the worst year all in one. God called my father home on April 15th. The pain has not ceased. I have just learned how to hide it better. I miss him dearly. But rather than dwelling on the pain I choose to focus on the wonderful father that I was blessed to have all these years. I reminise on the fun times, his unconditional love and his wisdom that will remain with me forever.
Despite my father’s death, God has blessed me so much this year…it has been unbelievable. Here are just a few things that I am so grateful for this year…
My daughter started Kindergarten this year at a terrific school. She has done quite well adjusting to school and a new city.
I met Oprah this year! The coolest experience ever! She has such a great spirit and her message during her Life Class really touched my heart.
I completed my first of many years to come at The Box. Of all the radio stations I have worked at in my career, this station is the perfect fit for me. The Box team is amazing! What a blessing!
I have had a few friendships come to an end this year but I have accepted that their season was over. Sometimes we try so hard to make something work when it’s time for that chapter to close. I will always appreciate what those people have brought to my life. Even with those “goodbyes”, God has put some fabulous people in my life this year who have really been a blessing to me.
The one thing that stands out the most to me in 2012… I HAD NO DRAMA THIS YEAR!!! LOL! My friends know that my life in 2010 and 2011 could have easily been a Lifetime Movie!! This year God answered my prayers. I prayed all last year that I could move away from all of the madness in my life. He made it happen. I prayed for a job with positive energy and great people. He gave it to me. I asked God to take away my worries. He did. I prayed for my friends and their job situations. He worked it out for ALL of them. (Now I also asked for a smart, funny, fine man that would love the crap out of me and my daughter but I’m sure that is coming soon! *WINK WINK*)
He also answered my dad’s prayers. My father had written on a piece of paper in the hospital days before he passed “Free Me From This Pain”. And He did.
I’m not sure what exactly you have been praying to God for but know He is listening. He also knows exactly when to provide you with what you need. It’s not always when WE think it should happen. Just let Him work it out. Whatever you are struggling with…GIVE IT ALL TO HIM. In the past two years, I have dealt with abuse, depression, death, moving, hurt feelings, loneliness, deceit, heartbreak and more. I am a witness to what HE can do. He brought me through all of this and then showered me with blessings. I pray that He showers you in 2013. And I pray that you are prepared to receive all of the blessings that He has in store for you!
Happy New Year!
