I guess it is because we are into a new year that I have been remembering past times a lot lately. Some of those milestones this coming year are:
-Being with CBF 3 years longer than we served with FMB
Then my sister, Sharon, wrote (in a thank you for remembering their anniversary) that it was kind of bittersweet to be married that long. You are thankful for all the years past, but
But there comes a point where I need to accept things that cannot be changed and move forward. For example:
The letter "N" is "H"
The letter "V" is "B"
(I could go on --- but you get the idea)
Another example is that in Macedonia we celebrate New Year's before Christmas
And we need to replace it with love, humility, compassion and hope that we have within us to give. We need to be "light" - as Arville said in his Christmas Message - where we are.
