It's All Good

Dear 2009,

There has been NOTHING dull about this year. You threw us for all kinds of loops and in true loop fashion, there were as many ups as there were downs. What was incredibly obvious to us was that God was the steadfast, rock solid constant that went right through the middle of all those loops and my love for Him grew deeper because of it.

In less than 10 hours we will all bid you good-bye amidst lots of celebration. I can honestly say that I will not shed a tear over your departure. No hard feelings, it's just that I am ready to move forward. Don't worry, 2009, because you will not be easily forgotten and I'm sure we will talk of you for many years to come.

I look forward to meeting your close friend, 2010. I am full of anticipation for what is to come this year with a healthy dose of trepidation mixed in there. I have you to thank for making me more confident, my marriage stronger, and my children a little more aware of how much God loves us all.

2009, I bid you farewell. Your job is done. Enjoy all the celebrations tonight in your honor!



  1. Very nicely written, Keri...

  2. I second that! 2010 will be full of new and exciting things and I can't wait to see what God has for you guys:)

  3. How exciting to know that God knows the future and had a "future and a hope," a destiny for each of us. I can hardly wait. I am excited for your new year as much as for my own...and to know that we are "one Bride" and that what we do will accomplish God's will...around the world. This year you move into an "international destiny." That is I know from experience. His call on your life is expanding...because you have been faithful with all He has given to you. I love you and pray that 2010 will FAR exceed anything you have walked through blessings, in insights and revelation of God and in growth for you and your entire family.

  4. I am believeing for great things in your blog and glad that I stopped by....
