I hope you had a very Happy New Year celebration. It’s always quiet at our house on New Year’s Eve. We do different things, watch a little television, maybe get on computer…it’s low key for my hubby and me. #newbeginnings2018 #amwriting #establishedblessings2018
I talked a bit about last year, and what a difference a year makes. I want to expand on that––especially if you are where I was emotionally a year ago. By taking a look back, I can move forward with great joy. I’ve been contemplating all this for weeks now…the difference a year makes. Click to Tweet
For many years of my life, I felt I never made a difference in this world. I’ve actually fallen off the world a few times, just to see if anyone noticed. They didn’t. Or if they did, they didn’t contact me. I’m learning to make a difference in my own small way, right where I’m at.
How am I doing this? Relationship. It’s all about the relationships you have, and the ones God brings you. In the past, I’ve tried different ways to go about having friends and how I dealt with family. I was very shy most of my life and my interaction with others was quite limited. That may have been why I felt I didn’t make a difference.
I feel like I’m in the middle of my own personal Tale of Two Cities. Only it’s not two cities, it’s the incredibly good and the very difficult. I can’t remember a year I’ve had like this one. On one hand, some amazingly good things have happened. I’ve shared a lot of that with you on this blog. I’ve also shared some of the difficulty. #amwriting #bestworstoftimes
Thank you all for reading this blog. It’s my hope that the Tuesday post will be encouraging, uplifting, and inspirational. I’ve got some guest bloggers coming soon to the Tuesday post. But for today, I’m sticking with Revelations & Friendships. A friend encourages and supports. Be a friend today and strengthen the feeble knees and weak hands.

It’s not too often that something just “comes” to me, like my literary agent recently did. But I’m convinced it was because a year ago, I stepped out of my comfort zone and started the process. Stepping out of our comfort zone can feel like walk off a cliff, doesn’t it? #comfortzone #walkingoffacliff Click to Tweet.
Sometimes all someone needs is a listening ear. In today’s fast-paced society running along at breakneck speed, taking time to listen to a friend or a loved one can be mighty important. Let’s talk about it. #alisteningear #listening #amwriting Click to Tweet
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:7. let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in.
