Today in sunny south Florida the sky is grey and the air is cold, warm compared to the rest of the country, freezing non the less to I.
Where will the New Year lead us?
Ted and I have started building our family future home in the Bahamas on the island of Eleuthra and are forming the foundation of Blue Water Surrender our next proposed sailing adventure to pour into youth and others love which comes from above living in a life of adventure and purpose through sailing and serving others. Trevor will be off to college next year and has applied to the Maine Maritime Academy specializing in the marine shipping industry.
It has been a long hard year for many and we have not been excluded. I am walking in hope and faith, preserving the many storms that blow through my mind. Sometimes I want to give up, always the glimmer of light appears in the nick of time to propel me forwards another step.
I pray for your New Year that it will be one full of life as you continue to choose each step that you take. I have discovered I am not in control but I have the blessing of choice every moment with every breath I take.

I look out to sea and wait. I have a vision and the time is not up to me. I realize what contentment is. Paul while in prison writes that he learned to be content in every situation not that he was leaping for joy. I realize that it is fine to feel different feelings besides joy, in knowing this I have been set free.
