After all that we went through in 2010, we feel like we’ve come through victorious and optimistic about 2011. Bring it on!

Flowers for 2011
"This bright new year is given me to live each day with zest." — William Arthur Ward

For us, 2010 was a giant roller-coaster of emotions and plans.

We put our house on the market and maintained it at showroom standard for months before deciding not to sell.

This was the year that David and I stopped fighting against each other and instead embraced true love in our marriage that has led to a peaceful unity of purpose and being — I even have the ring to prove it!

And for me, 2010 was the most pivotal point of my life. As Christ started to live in me for the first time in my life, I conquered crippling sins, was set free from religion by the Father, embraced unschooling as a family way of life and learned how to trust God in all circumstances and timing.

Late in the year, I embarked on a physical reinvention of myself, including getting dreadlocks, and I’m loving the new me.

2010 was the year when we lost friends and gained new ones. But those that we lost are not gone forever — I yearn for them and are confident that they’ll be set free soon too.

We also left our home and are now travelling … indefinitely. Our house still isn’t rented out, but instead of worrying about the money, we’ve been making friends and have received generous hospitality wherever we go.

What an exciting year this will be! Are you looking forward to it too?
