This rainbow represents how I feel about this new year of 2012. Rainbows appear after really hard rains. They appear to show promise; they appear to show that the rain was necessary for growth and cleansing; they appear to give hope.
2012 is a year of hope for me. It is a year go grow and blossom after the hard and at times torrential personal rain of 2011. 2012 is a year of promise; it is a year of cleansing and growth both personally and spriritually; it is truly a year of hope.
I start this year with much thanks. Thanks for being a survivor; thanks for strength I did not know I had. Thanks for concrete evidence of how the Lord works in my life. Thanks for creative opportunities that kept me from going down a road of sadness and gloom.
