5) Greater level of contentment in all circumstances - I can't really explain this, but as the year ends, I feel a sense of peace and contentment that I haven't felt in a long time. Reading back over the course of this blog, I believe getting to this place is reflected in the posts. It is my sincere desire that it has been a process leading towards a breakthrough year in 2011 when many things in my life will come together.
2) Closer walk with God - This, of course, is very personal and private, but it has been a breakthrough year in learning how my relationship with God affects every moment and relationship now and coming to a greater acceptance that this life is only a preparation for the next one. My purpose in being here at this place and time is not to be "happy," but to make God smile. And that is exactly what I want to do!
I wish for all of you a 2011 filled with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, humility and self-control. Happy New Year!
