Side note: I hate it when my friends are hurting! I’ve got a few dealing with some pretty heavy stuff lately. They shouldn’t make me worry like this, back into my ‘prayer closet’ I go!
I’ve been trying to figure out what to say in my last post for the year… guess I’ll just wing it.
2013 was an exciting year. I mean, come on, I went to Africa! How amazing was that?!?! I earned my pastoral license, asked out a guy and bought a new car! Made it through 6 sessions of Spanish classes, even though I don’t really know how to speak it yet, I know a lot of grammar. I learned that I’m not that bad at painting and colored pencil art. I lost a whopping 9 pounds this year And, unfortunately, had to say good-bye to a couple of the seniors in my group, but they’re in a better place.
So, what do I hope for next year? A date with said guy. Paying off some of that car and other debt. Probably taking a year off from the mission field, maybe take an actual vacation?!?! Taking some Advanced Spanish classes, a course called Perspectives, and hopefully losing some weight. Already signed up for one 5k, hope to complete that one and another two. Possibly a promotion at work. And walking besides these friends of mine with what they’re going through.
How was your 2013? What do you plan/hope for in 2014? Just keep these verses in mind (almost clichés, but it’s still good stuff):
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.'” Jeremiah 29:11
“Be delighted with the Lord. Then he will give you all your heart’s desires.” Psalm 37:4.

What other two 5K’s are you looking at, Tammy? I have one other in June (I think) in Illinois, then want to do the Hot Chocolate 15K in December. Want to fill in with one more 5K.
The Go! Halloween 5k in October, possibly the Hot Chocolate in December. There’s a Gooble Wooble on Thanksgiving that’s a possibility too. I’m currently reading Risky Gospel by Owen Strachan (for review) and Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.
