I have finally fallen apart at the seams. No need to go into all of the details, but things have just got to change and there's no time than the present (which happens to be January, 2011) to begin again.
I know that I cannot live a second of my life without God and know that I need to pray more fervently and constantly for the intimacy with Him that I seek and need. It just seems to me that as things worsen around the world, in this country, in my family with my father failing more each day, and my work environment stress increasing each day with the sad state budget problems, that it is just as true now as it has always been: I cannot live without God's love, Providence, forgiveness, and protection in every beating moment of my life.
For this I re-committ myself to Him now and forever.
Blessings in this new year.
