| The Year That Was 2003
|December 31, 2003.
I think it's safe to say, 'Time flies so fast'. Because really, time flies so fast. I can still remember January 1, 2003 and all its promises of a better life for me in 2003 than in 2002. And now January 1, 2004 is just less than 12 hours away with a promise of a better 2004.
Right now, I think it's only appropriate that I look back on the year that was.
I think 2003 has been the hardest year for me in the 23 years I've existed. So many things have happened (or not happened) and each and every trial has tested my patience, determination, will, confidence and, most importantly, my faith. No matter how many challenges I had to experience, I knew, every single time, that I would be alright. Because I had God with me. He took care of me. He carried me when no one else would. And you know what? Despite all the heartbreaks, shattered dreams, false hopes and everything bad that happened to me this year, 2003 has been one of the best years of my life. Because if not for all of this, my faith would not have grown stronger. My life would have lost all meaning and to tell you frankly, all desire to live life would have been lost.
But I'm happy now. Not because I don't have any problems, but because I know, despite all the problems, I'll be fine. Because of Him.
I know I promised a "Best of the Blogs" Awards here in Jax Place at the end of the year but *surprise surprise!* I haven't finished it yet. Since this is the first time Jax Place will be conducting this, I only have five awards.
Favorite Christian Blog
Favorite Filipino Blog
Favorite Foreign Blog
Most Thought-Provoking Blog
Hopefully, more awards will be added every year.
I will post winners in a few hours.
