{I found this unpublished post today (I have many unpublished posts actually) and wondered why I never posted it.  I'm sure I either forgot or never finished it.  Probably the latter.  I tend to be sort of a perfectionist with nearly everything.  Sometimes I end up not posting something because it's just too personal.  It ends up just needing to be seen only by the eyes of God.  But here is one, though probably unfinished and rather random.  Sometimes I like to look back and see where I was at different times in my life.  These were my feelings as we were approaching 2011.}

I feel breathless...
tired, unsure, scared, overwhelmed, in over-my-head, anxious, helpless, hopeless, helpless, so helpless...

I feel passionate...
overjoyed, blessed, thankful, breathing a sigh-of-relief,

I don't understand suffering, but of this thing I am certain and would stake my life on it, He loves us.
How He Loves Us!

So as I enter 2011, I remember the suffering and I say, "God, please help me look beyond my little world and make a difference in the lives of those who are suffering, those who feel hopeless, those who are in need.  And please, hold me to this, Lord!"  I don't want to do anything just because it's the right thing to do, but because we are called to do the work of Jesus.
