2012 – A study in contrasts

31 Dec

Change and transition. Loss and gain. Ending and beginning. Leaving and arriving. Saying “goodbye” and saying “hello.” West to East. Finishing and starting anew. Betrayal and blessing. Sorrow and joy. Disappointment and delight. Highs and lows. Weeping and celebrating. Old friends and new friends. Discouraging words and affirmation. Providing and withholding. Marvelous and mundane. Slipping and standing. Family time and empty nest. Marking time and moving forward. Questions and answers. Sammamish, Tsibanobalka, Seattle, Wenham, Beaverton, Cerritos, & Chicopee. Traveling and staying put. Praying and pondering. Seeking and finding. Rain, sun, and snow. Amusements and puzzles. Trials and tests. Selling and storing.

Through it all, grace, mercy, and great faithfulness.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22–23, ESV)
