We're full of hope

Happy Me day. Once a year we can celebrate the fact that we made it to the next year.

Thank you to all the friends and family (and strangers) who have taken time out of their busy schedules to show me that they care for me, this crazy erratic creature called Karen. Thanks to those who are supporting my efforts to raise money for Compassion International through my 10k run. And thanks to those that have made me happy just for being there on the sidelines, no matter how far away you are.

Everyday is indeed a blessing. So many prayers have been answered in the past year.
- A heart that yearns for You
- Opportunities for spiritual conversations
- Health and well-being for myself and my family
- My loving friends and family- for their support and care
- Many new friends, brothers and sisters in Christ
- Spiritual growth
- My brother's baptism this month
- Development of Sunday School worship and Senior 2 bonding
- Support from church
- Growth in Y4C and Chinese Youth Fellowship
- Movement and progress in my PhD
- Scholarship to the United States, arrangements with flights and accommodation
- And faith in the unseen, whether it be my future career, relationship and family.

In reviewing my prayer diary for the year, I can see things coming into place. I may not be able to see the end result yet, but surely the Lord is working. Sometimes I prayed for, and the answer has been far better than my original prayer. God knows what I need. It may not be necessarily what I want at the time, but he knows what is best for me. He has already given us his son, what can he withhold from us? Is anything too hard for our God?

And for the next year, my prayer requests
- The salvation and softening of hearts of my dear friends and family
- The ill and sick amongst family, friends and church members.
- Y4C, Chinese Youth, Sunday School Worship and Senior 2- spiritual growth and thirst
- Safety and productivity in America
- My family member's travels
- My brother's graduation
- PhD progress, completion and job search
- Continued faith in the unseen, including my future career, relationship and family

In the midst of the darkness

The weak find their strength in You

Your peace, it calms my soul
Our eyes are on You
You bring hope to the hopeless
Your love, it wont let go
Our eyes are on You
