I usually don't have a "merry" Christmas but my 2007 holiday was extremely wonderful. I feel so blessed. Materially, I've got everything that I want and more than I needed. God has been overflowing His blessings upon me and I am so thankful. Although, I wasn't able to walk for two days after Christmas because of my swelling feet, I only needed to rest and I'm as good as new. I was able to travel and bond with my family. I am so thankful for my grandmother, she celebrated her eighty-eight birthday last December 23 and she's stronger than ever. Our families may not be perfect, of course we have our flaws and in 2007, we lost a lot of our loved-ones from cancer and heart attack but still with God tremendous love we had overcome all that and we're still standing.

Many people said I'm looking good and they're happy because I don't look so sick and sad anymore. I usually feel emotional when a year ends and worried about the new year ahead but just like the year-end message at our church, 2007 is the year that was, forget all the pain and learn from it. It's time to look ahead and start moving forward. Our God is great and whatever happens, let us always keep our eyes focus on God and everything will turn out fine.

God bless us all!

You look great. I just stumbled upon your blog and never would have thought you were sick.

read the last few verses about our great reward in Hebrews 10 I think it will encourage you.
