I just feel it in the air. I feel like shocking and wonderful things are going to happen this year, and it begins with me.
In January, I flew to LA for the day so that I could be there when my nephew sang the National Anthem at the Lakers game.
In January, I turned 60 years old and had the most wonderful and thoughtful celebrations ever.
In January, I came to terms with relationships I'd been wondering about.
In January, I had a prophetess confirm some interesting things about me, my calling, and my life.
There were some wonderful moments in January. But then...
In January, a dear friend of mine passed away. I'd spoken with her a few weeks priors to her passing and I knew that her health had taken a turn for the worse, I just didn't know the severity of it all. I got a call on a Tuesday morning that she was in ICU and I left work early to go visit with her. I had no idea that just a few hours later she'd be gone.
In January, I asked God why He chose to take my friend. I didn't think she was ready to go. I still don't. The last time I spoke with her she was making travel plans, hoping to be able to make it to my birthday celebration, planning to go back to work. But God had other plans and I was devastated and disappointed. Yet I know of His omnipotence and I know that I have to trust in His plan.
If January is any indication of what this year is going to be like, I'm in for a ride. Maybe you are, too.
