Christmas Reflection & New Year's Thoughts

I am so thankful for all the Lord has done for me in 2009, and I am exceedingly excited to see more to come in 2010. As we enter the last week of December, I can't help but to look back on 2009, and look forward to a new year ahead.

This Christmas was the first Christmas Deric and I celebrated together as husband and wife, along with my beloved Mum and two of our good friends. We had a restful & relaxing day rejoicing in the Lord, amidst cooking and reflecting on the real meaning of Christmas - the birth of Jesus.

On Boxing Day we went to our church's outreach activity where there was a BBQ organised for people in the community. I got talking to a homeless guy and learned so much from him. That really reminded me that presence is just as important, if not more important than presents during Christmas and in our daily lives.

I am interested to know what the Lord has done for you in 2009? Also, if you have any thoughts and visions for 2010 I would love for you to share them in the comments. I'd love to pray for you and with you.

God bless you all right now & in this coming year of 2010

In various ways, this year has been a challenging one, but God is good and full of grace.

I'm so thankful for all your blessings this year. God has seen us through a great deal this year and I'm trusting Him to continue to reveal to us how much we really need and count on Him. ;-)

i believe that 2010 is going to be a great year for God's people. a much better year than 2009. it's a year of completion, perfection and restoration. in everything that i've gone through and still is, although there were times that i really wanted to throw in the towel, i still hold on and trust God to do mighty things for me this 2010. i know our God is faithful.
