Can you believe it’s almost 2009?!
This year has flown by, at least for me. It seems just a few days ago we were celebrating my youngest son’s birthday in January. Before I knew it, schoolwork was being wrapped up. Then we celebrated my oldest son’s birthday in August and our 22nds anniversary.
We’ve been back into the daily struggle to get the boys to do their school work for over three months, and they still balk at it. I don’t know what’s up with that, but I’m sure public school children gripe about going to school, too.
Now, we’re almost half way through November. Thanksgiving is just around the corner which is closely followed by all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Man, oh man, time is flying by too quickly! Where has the year gone?
How about you? Have you been experiencing life at the speed of light? Or is it just my family?
2009 will be here before we know it and our lives may never be the same. With the current financial situation looming over us and a new direction for the country by our newly elected officials, there is a lot of uncertainty in the future. Thankfully, I know WHO holds the future in HIS hands and that HE is well-aware of my misgivings.
I may not like the outcome of the recent elections, but I refuse to let fear take hold. “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) I will trust in HIM who knows the end from the beginning and know that HE is in control.
