Here’s hoping that you had an amazing Christmas Day with family and friends, with more focus on Jesus than on what was under the Christmas tree! 😉 Once again, I had a great Christmas in the tropics, with the requisite cool breezes and tranquil scenery. *clinks imaginary wine glass to the computer screen* To the good life!
Another year older…
Today, I celebrate yet another event. A year has zipped by since I celebrated a milestone birthday. What in the world happened to 2012? It’s gone. I’m gettin’ old, y’all!
I’ll be honest: this year was a bear. A huge, voracious grizzly that often tried to convince me that it would take me out. When it wasn’t health, it was
the plantation work, or it was the (missing) Benjamins. But God… To put a new twist on the old Charles Schwab ad: when others said “no,” God said “yes!” On to another one!
A giveaway to ring in the new year
Guys, Embrace the Struggle has finally migrated from Blogger to WordPress! (Nonbloggers are going “huh??”) This was one of my goals since the beginning of the year. Loving it! Kudos and beaucoup thanks to Kesha at XDwebsolutions.com for a great job and for extending great grace and patience to me.
To mark this new beginning–and the new year–Embrace the Struggle is offering a giveaway of the Food Matters DVD and Detox Guide e-book. After our holiday food and drink
binges indulgences, it’ll be great to start the new year on the right footing, health-wise.
You can participate in the giveaway in any of the following three ways:
- Comment below on the blog about your health and fitness resolutions for the new year;
- Comment on our Facebook page or share the Facebook link to this post on your Facebook page; or
- Tweet this post, mentioning @EmbraceStruggl1 and including the hashtag #ETSnewyeargiveaway.
A new Embrace the Struggle feature
I’ve been toying for almost a year with the concept of a weekly curated blog post through which I’d bring to you some of the goodies I read/saw/heard online during the week. Well, beginning on Saturday, January 5, Embrace the Struggle will begin Saturday Soup. Make sure to come on back to see what’s really caught my attention in the first week of January!
And … a grateful heart!
I’m blessed to have this blog and to know and interact with you, the Embrace the Struggle tribe. Thanks for subscribing, following, reading, commenting, encouraging, and lurking! 🙂 Love you all! Invite your friends to join us as we embrace new struggles–and overcome them, with God’s help– in 2013. And do share with me some of the topics you’d like to see us “embrace” on the blog.
