As we approach the end of 2019 and look toward a new year I decided to sit with God and reflect on the past 12 months. These last 12 months have flown by. It always amazes me how the older I get the faster time seems to flow. This past year has been filled with many emotions. It has been a season of pause from my medical career in order to focus on my own personal well being and the well being of my family. Just a short 9 months ago I was having trouble walking down stairs. I am running in the park a couple of days a week. I am healthier from a physical, emotional and spiritual perspective.
It has also been a testimony of God’s provision. I have lacked for no good thing. I am frugal but I lack for no good thing in my life.
This past year I have written over 200 short articles and managed to write short stories incorporating my paintings. Something I would have never dreamed of doing. Who new I was capable of writing? Well not me that’s for sure. I have always been good at numbers and math not words. But the other part of my writing that has been interesting is, I enjoy it. I have enjoyed my daily writing and getting to share it with others. Again this blows my mind because I tend to be an extremely private person. When I first shared my blogs I was nervous and unsure. Now I enjoy getting to make the posts. It has become a hobby and an unexpected hobby at that.
I have both spent so much of this year sleeping. I sleep roughly 12-13 hours a day. I have fewer hours in the day to be “productive” yet the work required always seems to get done.
I have very much enjoyed the life style of the last year. I very much want it to continue for it has been peaceful despite dealing with some unpleasant things. I do not know that things will always be this relaxed or peaceful but I am thankful for the times that they are. We shall see what 2020 brings to us. Thank you God for 2019!
