The Impact of a Letter

I do not do this often, but I took time out for just me this evening. I excused myself to my room and geared up Netflix. I then searched for a movie I have been wanting to see titled Letters to God. I thought it would be appropriate for me to watch alone and I'm glad I chose to do so.

The story behind the movie really tugged at my heart. I will not ruin it and type the story here, all I will say is God chooses certain people for different things in this big journey of life. The main character showed his faith in God through his letters. You may be thinking, letters? God won't read those. Let me tell you, He does. I have my own personal notebook just for that. I started it last year. I didn't write in it a whole lot, but so far this year I am off to a good start. I find it very relaxing to do this. I'm not one who likes to pray aloud, so I thought this would be a great way to make sure I communicate with Him. In the short time that I have been writing, prayers have been answered; even the smallest ones.

My challenge to you: Take time out and watch this movie, then write your own Letters and see what happens! It's nothing short of amazing when you see and realize that He has blessed you!

New Year; New Adventures

The holiday season has once again come and gone. Now is the beginning of a new year and new adventures await us all.

I cannot wait to see what 2011 has in store for me and those dear to me. I am excited for what may lie ahead. I know there will be struggles and hard times, but I feel like this is going to be a great year. I spent the New Year holiday with my sister and had a wonderful time. It had been several years since we had been together on New Years and I am so glad we were for 2011. We had time to bond like we had not had in a while.

Not much else to be said for now...

Here's to an awesome 2011!
