i skipped yesterday because i forgot.
I BLOGGED 23 DAYS IN A ROW AND I RUINED IT BECAUSE I FORGOT. WHO DOES THAT?

anyway, whatev, moving on....i've been busy. but i did get an email today and i wanted to share part of it, because it was so encouraging to read.

"....i feel like for most of my life, i've been fragmented. i've compartmentalized areas/times of my life into neat little boxes and kept them labeled (kinda like your gmail - haha), but by doing that, i've never really allowed myself to be whole. over the past few months, through God's grace and healing, He's been bringing all of those pieces together...allowing me to accept who i was and who i am, the good and the bad. restoring me. like....my life is a jigsaw puzzle, with some pieces here put together and another part over there and separately, they make various little images, glimpses of my life. but my Father is slowly sliding all of those pieces together into one complete picture. and everyday i get a glimpse of who i am in Christ...who i can be and who i will be."

so many people around me have been feeling broken and fragmented. 2008 has been a hard year...but He is the great Healer and is putting us back together, piece by piece.

they took the words right out of my mouth. 2008 has been a really hard year. i'm already calling 2009 "the year of healing". bring it LORD.
