I have been on a blogging hiatus for a long time now. And much to my regret, there were many chances, times when I could have framed sacred moments in words, that I let slip.
And so I start anew this 2011. New year, NEW BEGINNINGS.
To move forward, I do need to step back... to recreate moments that would forever etch the-year-that-was in my memory, in my heart. That I may not forget...
2010 started with a prayer... (See, A Rested Heart)
"I have stilled and quieted my soul..." That is my prayer for 2010. That as I busy my hands on the plow, I shall go forth unruffled by storms of doubt and anxiety, knowing full well that God is in control. He is sovereign still.
...But I choose to be like a weaned child with its mother. Unshaken, basking in the unchallenged truth -- that my God is indeed able and trustworthy.
Looking back, God has answered that prayer in ways unimaginable. I am awed. Yet again. And I am grateful that I still am.
As the long silence have atrophied my writing muscle, I let the pictures paint the words for me. For now. Until I find my muse again.

So I brace myself for many new beginnings this 2011. And as I did last year, I shall set out with a new prayer in my heart. I choose to stay in the long path of trusting and obeying our Father and King. For His fame. For His renown. :)
Happy New Beginnings!
