With a new year, comes a new chance to work on resolutions, reflect on the past year, and to live another chance to start fresh once again. It's always a privilege to be able to enter a new year with close friends and brothers and sisters, which is why our new year's eve celebration night at First Southern Baptist Church was one of the most meaningful ways that I've celebrated a new year. Usually, I would be in Taiwan, watching the fireworks shoot off of Taipei 101 with my parents standing by my side, or maybe my cousins. But this year past winter break has been one of the best in my memories given my chance to stay in Tucson and to celebrate Christmas and New Year's with friends, family, and my very home town. I hope that for those of you read this, you take this chance in 2012 to really look at yourself. For me, I'm finally graduating from high school, which means a whole new experience come college; for the rest of the members in LTF, they're all graduating as well, and it just means that we are all going to be transitioning into completely new phases of our lives, and it's not going to be easy. I know for myself, I don't know what God has planned for me in the coming few months once summer goes and my first semester of college begins. There's so much unknown to me, like what college I'll end up going to, what major I'll end up deciding on, and even what types of people I'll meet. But what I can do for now is just to walk closer with God, and I know that He will take care of everything for me. I've discovered that letting God take control of my life has made my life much easier - He knows what's best for me, and I don't have to worry about any hardships that I'll end up encountering, since I know that God's got my back. We're just tight like that :D Hope you all have a wonderful new year!
