Thinking about the end of the year

There is a lot of snow now, here;

the wind is blowing,

I can hear it by my windows

here on the 8th floor.

I read this blog post about saying goodbye to the year

and realize I need to do just that.

As many who read my blog know,

this year has been with a lot of challenges.

*

A year ago my job was already proving to have

great and serious difficulties;

I was really shaken,

did not even have as much courage for

the corporate Christmas party

I had to go to.

**

In many ways I really loved my job;

running my own library

working for the staff there,

praying for them

silently

and caring.

***

I lost this job due to reevaluations in the end of Lent.

It took me sometime to realize

how I had left the that library

in a much better place

than when I began.

*

And so it goes.

I lost the job.

I left the apartment I loved.

**

But soon it will be a new year.

My life is still unfolding.

***

God is with us.

coming to us here, in Ottawa, this past fall.

We must remember God
and not give up hope.
