Hello January. Here We Are Again.

Dear January,

You are a hard month for me.

img_2003Seems like you are dark. Seems like you want me to be sad after the holidays. It seems like you try and stifle the light in my life.

January, I learned we can’t sponsor her anymore. 17 years we have sponsored her. How do I reconcile this?

our sponsor child Remya January, you often take me down in my spirit. I am often most tired, and the most sad during this month.  Thank the good Lord I travel now, but January, you are the hardest month of the year for me.

However, I need to offer you a bit of praise after bashing you so much.

First, thank you for the snow.

You did offer me a sense of quiet, and undeniable beauty this year. More than I can remember for a long time.

Thanks for offering me time to look back, and time to look ahead.  Each of these pictures have a very important story for me.

God knows me, and He loves me. When I look at the pictures of my last year, I am thankful for these stories.

January, you are the beginning of a new year and the reflection of the last year.13575800_1275008642510306_6189404403519651513_oimg_1423img_1579img_1325dsc_8176dsc_9959img_1526dsc_5251I cannot control what is ahead, I can only trust.  I cannot control what has happened in the past, only give thanks.

So January, lets move on, and lets see what is next.

Love,

Patricia
