A Look at 2017 – The Year That Was

2017 has ended a few days ago and as I look back, I can say that my year was truly a busy one. Compared to the previous years, 2017 was filled with activities and it was definitely a year of stretching.

We continued homeschooling this year and we are on our 8th year of homeschooling. There has been a tremendous amount of adjustment as I had to work on my schedule since I am also working part time as a tutor and as a family advisor. I also am meeting young adults and discipling them during weekends and night times. The Lord has allowed me to talk to more people and even let me attend the IDMC in Singapore.

While there were many ups, I was quite disappointed with a few things. I was able to continue my journaling but towards the latter part of the year, I was not able to be consistent at all. I fell below my target number of books that I wanted to read. I didn’t get to save as much as I hoped. At the end of the year, I just wanted to quit everything I was doing – I was overwhelmed.

I realize that there was just too much on my plate. I was thankful for the year end break and the few days of rest that the Lord granted me. I am still processing how I want my 2018 to be but I definitely will be changing my involvement in some things.

2017 passed by like a breeze. Some goals were achieved but most were not. But through it all, God has been faithful and I have seen him work in my life.
