Onward and Upward

So many people have gone through trying and difficult times this past year, I thought I should write something wise and helpful as 2010 comes to a close. My pitiful attempts, however, seem trite. There's not much I can say to make anyone feel better about his or her particular situation when life can be rock hard and crushing.

My prayer is that if you are questioning God's love for you—asking whether He cares, whether He even exists—you will hear a clear and resounding YES throughout this next year.

Happy New Year, gentle readers.

Beautiful post.

I was amused by how many moose there were in your slide show. It made me smile.

Perfect reminder. I have a friend whose husband drowned this fall. I often think of all the "firsts" she is facing without him. Like Christmas and New Years and their anniversary. Life is hard to understand, but we don't see the big picture like God does.

I loved your slide show!
