As you can see, the layout of my blog has changed quite a bit. I'm in the process of giving it a new look for the new year. It's been almost 3 years since I've had the same layout, and while I love the old layout, I'm looking to switch it up some. So hopefully by the end of January I'll have something! ;)
Many people around the blogosphere (do people even say that anymore?) are coming up with words to define 2010. Last year my word was "health". At the end of 2008, I was in a bad place mentally, spiritually and physically. So my goal for 2009 was to focus on getting myself healthy. I have gone through a lot in 2009. Much sadness mixed with much sweetness. Much confusion mixed with much enlightenment. Much staying in one place with discovery. But I am thankful for where I am now, and I look forward to the journey ahead.
I discovered this quote above by Proust the other day and I just can't get it out of my mind. Much of 2009 has been about me accepting where I am and looking at it with fresh eyes: the eyes of the Lord. When we see things through His vision, things are so much more clearer.
This year I don't want to search for new landscapes, but want to see things with new eyes: God's eyes. I have learned that my circumstances do not define me, but that if I rest under His wing, that He protects and leads me in His way despite what is going on around me. How wonderful yet how painful to learn that--to really, really learn that.
Here's to a brand new year, faithful readers!!
May we all have new eyes to what He has in store for us!
