As the end of the year slowly creeps up and I will face the last of my Festive Tests, Test No 4. New Year’s Eve, I haven’t got a clue what I will be doing this time tomorrow evening or where I will be, probably in exactly the same place as I am now, at the keyboard typing out yet another post.
One thing I do know is I won’t be drinking anything other than Pepsi Max or Lime n Soda, the SoberDay count will stand at 276 days tonight and I will see in the New Year with 277 SoberDays, I may celebrate alone and it will not be the first time, but the difference will be this year is that I know I will never be truly alone, just because my eyes don’t see, my heart believes.
I have drafted a number of poems over the last few weeks, I’ve decided that as they belong to 2012, they should be posted in 2012, so over this evening I have posted the remaining drafts from my notebook (apologies for cluttering your Reader). There are two other drafts left unposted in my notebook, one is a personal poem of thanks which I intend to deliver personally on New Year’s Day, the other I’m not sure will be ever read by anyone other than myself, but I will continue to pray for that situation.
I would like to say thank you to Jill and Barry at GeGeBearBear for awarding me another star for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award, as always gratefully received.
I would like to ask at this point that all my praying friends Pray for Jill and Barry, they both have come through a tough year already only for Jill to diagnosed this week with the early stages of kidney failure, I’m sure all your prayers will be greatly appreciated by both of them.
If I don’t post again tomorrow (to be honest I am sure I will) I would like to say Happy New Year and thank you all so much for your support over the last three months.
For you Jill, Search My Heart by Hillsong United
Hear my cry
And hear my prayer
Draw me close
I know your near
Give me strength
And give me grace
To walk with You
Lord, all my days
