This has been a year I will never forget; a year that I will always remember; one of those pivotal years that you look back on and base your life around before or after… “b.c. 2014 or 2014 a.d.”. It has been a year of sheer madness, heartbreaking truth, and earth shattering news. It has been a year that has brought me to my knees and made me cry out uncontrollably. I lost someone I dated and cared for deeply to the hands of heaven, lost custody of my kids, lost my job, house and my car, and lost my dad and the reality of everything I thought I knew. It was a year of more bad than good- with heartbreaking loss and sequential devastation. It has been a year that has developed my faith and tested me through the burning fire. Despite how bad 2014 was, I wouldn’t change it. It’s been a year that taught me to trust God and rely on him for he is always good. It has taught me when you lose everyone you only need someone… THE someone… The only person you’ll ever need… Jesus. I could be bitter and angry about this year or I can be happy for the lessons it taught me (not to mention happy that it’s over). I’m glad this year has come to a close because that only means there is more up ahead; There’s a new beginning, a fresh start. I don’t know what 2015 will hold for me but I do know that it can’t get any worse than the last. There’s only going up from here. Because Jesus was born, died and rose again the impossible can happen. The tides can turn and new life can begin. Thank you to all my friends and family who have stuck by me this year, held me while I cried, and sacrificed everything so I could have something! You have shown me Jesus’ heart in your love and actions! Thank you for being you and allowing God to use you as a vessel to impact me! I’m truly humbled to have so many amazing people enter my life in 2014, and I can only hope 2015 will bring yall happieness and cheer! Thank you for following my journey with God and continuing to be an encouragement of strength to me! I am thankful for each and everyone of you! I pray Yall have a blessed and prosperous new year!
