'09, a sweet year indeed

This was originally written in early 2010. It never got published because it is an unfinished work. Upon my reading of it now, I find it quiet sweet and something that I don't want to loose in the midst of "I'll finish that later." Maybe some day I will, 2009 was a pretty good year. :)

Another year... 2010. Something I have done the past several years is reflect upon the past year before I begin to make goals for the new year. Often I see God's faithful hand moving in my life and I am left in awe of His sweet providence. It makes me recall how God often asked His people to create ways to remember His faithfulness, like the remembrance stones the Israelites built up after they crossed the Jordan into the Promised Land. For me, the new year is a remembrance stone to remember God's faithfulness. Looking back on 2009 I see God answering my prayers, showing me His divine plan for my life. The sweetest thing happened to me this year, I married the man that captured my heart from the day I met him. Seriously, I knew upon our first meeting that I would marry him. Through our relationship, God saved me, brought me into full knowledge of who my Saviour is, Jesus Christ, and opened my eyes to a world unseen. I am not the same person I was 5 1/2 years ago. I married in June and moved to Virginia in August for my husband start law school. The whole process of moving to Virginia was a God-thing. Something that He used to make Him very real to us.
