Is it 2010 Already???? Where has the time gone???

i can not believe that it is January already. i had so many plans for this ole' blog of mine...
  • i planned to post a recap of 2009 like the ones seen on two of my favo blogs: From Marriage to Motherhood (formerly An Atlanta Bride) and Adrienne's Little World. {Yeah it is 2010 already... i will just count that one as a missed opportunity}

  • i planned to do a step by step post of the planning of my 30th birthday. {This never happened; but maybe the recaps will suffice}

  • i planned to take photos by the Christmas tree with my goddaughter Diamond, but this did not happen because we ran out of time. The second year in a row!!! {My Christmas tree is now in storage, but i will solve this issue next year! These photos will be taken as soon as my tree goes up... huuuummmph! LOL!}

  • i planned to recap all the events that "Visuality" planned in December. {Again I ran out of time and even forgot to take pictures. Now that was a mess because it was in my opinion some my best work..}
  • i planned to.....
  • and to.....

There were so many things that i wanted to do in 2009, but it just did not happen. i guess what took precedence were my plans to spend the remainder of my year enjoying my friends, family and loved ones... and i did just that.

So to 2009, farewell.... what a year it was! i laughed, i cried, i built, i destoyed, i learned, i forgot, i moved on, i stayed, i saw, i was blind, i mourned, i danced, i won and i lost...but most of all i grew!!!! i want to continue this growth so in 2010, i don't plan to but i will live out Jeremiah 29:11 to the fullest:

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (NIV)

If nothing else in 2009... i learned one very valuable lesson... God plans for your life are always in your best interest!

So in 2010, i challenge you to live out Jeremiah 29:11 in your life and do so on purpose!
