Reflecting on 2016, and looking forward to 2017

2016 was an eventful year.

There were many tears. I have had to say goodbye to so many people. My beloved grandma (I still remember standing on the cliff top, receiving the phone call and breaking down in tears, my weekly practice of calling my grandma is still so engrained in me, I miss her laughter, I miss teasing her to make her angry, and I miss sleeping on her bed when she isn't watching), my adopted church grandma (I miss you running after me at church, your radiant smile and the way you made church feel like home)... many of my friends also had breakups with their long term partners.

I had some pretty ambitious plans for my job, love and life. And this week's sermon spoke to that. I put my ladders up in the wrong place, so even if i was succeeding, I wasn't succeeding in the right things.

And so at the end of it all, i'm not praying for my will be done, but I'm looking forward to the adventure of 2017 where HIS will will be done.
