Has It Been An Entire Year?

Only 2 days left to my 28th year. What can I say for this year in reflection? I spent most of 2009 in an up and down roller coaster ride of emotions, unsure of so many things one minute and beyond confident the next. I thought I knew exactly what God had for me, even amongst,what seemed, to be the driest time of my life. One thing I know for sure, I walked many days and night in the desert. I took a trip to the most glorious place on earth, Scotland, thinking I was going to have a revelation, but my soul returned in an even greater downcast state. I was struggling for air to fill my lungs, to drag myself out of the muck I had dove, so willingly, into. I was reaching for the nearest hand to hold, the quickest answer to make sense of it all.

I am doubtful I could be more thankful for the love of our Savior, who put so many people in my path to keep me straight. Through them, He delivered my soul and freed my spirit. He lead me out of the rocky and decaying pit.

In this year, He brought the most amazing blessing in my life. He has shown me a glimpse of His pursuit of my heart, the respect He created me to insist upon, and a hidden world that somehow becomes more beautiful with each sun rise. I am so very excited to start the 29th year of my life with my love, Nathaniel Grant Abplanalp and I feel so very blessed that he chose this weekend of my birthday, to begin our journey together in Charlotte!

It has, indeed, been a wonderful year:)
