From the Letdown, Full of Hope

Happy… March?

I’m down with Influenza-A at the moment, hot off the heels of ten days in Orlando for FCA’s international conference and an all-staff event. I recorded 22 interviews in 5 days, which was a highlight for me, but the subsequent gathering of 3,000+ people and nonstop visiting left me drained. A little more drained than I was hoping for upon return. I am supposed to be flying to Kansas City on Monday for a week, but my body won’t stop aching and feeling like it weighs 1,000 pounds. If I’m honest, I’ve been sick about half of this year already. I’m sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. But apparently it can’t be helped. I’m taking my vitamins, getting both rest and exercise and attempting to live the healthiest life for me in this season, but there isn’t much to do when things like sickness come sweeping in out of my control.

This is NOT how I anticipated 2024 to start. But there have been a lot of good things this year, too. Overall, I am grateful and full of hope.

If 2024 has been different than how you envisioned it, that’s OK. We can acknowledge unmet expectations, disappointments, and just plain old things out of our control. But we can, with God’s help, renew our perspective and still see a light through.
