2015 The End

Forgot all about doing one of these entries last year. Well didn't forget just didn't bother as 2014 wasn't that memorable. (Actually struggling recalling it now too) The years at an end, I'm in a pub in Newport Shropshire before I go to New Years party at Kay's house. Fancy dress too, think I'm gonna be a super hero of kind. I've got 30 mins to write this entry and go get changed.
It'll be good tonight I'm sure, everyone except Tom will be there, few beers, bit of food and home. Couldn't be better, tomorrow a meal with Aunty Kay at Dans pub, try some of that boys food. After all Terry and I tried to convince home to not cook; how wrong were we then?

What about this year then, how many changes I been through. (Que blonde track playing now)

New job, took VM into new territory and joined Arris shortly after, a promotion too. Now got some work to do in the new year to deliver a great service so I can move on in life, you see you got to do your best by your employer so you and they succeed, it's the only way.

Holiday this year in Mauritious, very nice for our 40th Birthday, great time out there with the Michelle, sand sea and all that holiday stuff. Saw some great things and great places.

So, now I'm 40. Not as fit as used to be, that's because I'm not cycling enough. I'll deal with that in 2016... Work life balance restored and cycling and fun with the boy. The youth club we'll grow this year too, make it good for the kids in Thactcham. So, I've got tons of pictures that remind me of a pretty good year so let's look forward.

Here's to a good and happy new year, with the Lord, amen. Get this new job good, the youth club good, time with the family good... Caroline out in the sun... Happy VW

Anyways, over and out.. Happy New Year

Disappointment often leads to discouragement, which is even more of a "downer." How disappointing and discouraging it is to see the things we love senselessly destroyed by others or, even worse, by our own neglect or failure.

Regardless of how it may happen or who may be responsible, it is hard to go on when everything we have counted on falls down around us. That's when those of us who have the creative power of the Holy Spirit on the inside can get a new vision, a new direction, and a new goal to help us overcome the downward pull of disappointment, discouragement, and destruction.
