God has been great to me and my family this past year. My parents and I finally got a chance to go back toChinato visit our families. We haven’t been back for about 10 years and everything has changed. After seeing how my families living their lives inChina, I was glad that God had brought us toAmerica. The people there are so focus on money and benefits that they don’t know how to love people anymore. It is very sad to see my families are turned into that. It reminds me how wonderful it is to live in God’s love. The most I can do for them is to pray and let God to touch their hearts. School work has been great this year. I have more clear vision of what I want to accomplish. I want to give thanks to God because every time I got lost or went off track, I could always rely on him to help me get back up. A lot time it is very easy to follow the steps in the world, doing what everyone else is doing. Distractions and temptations are around me, without the power of God I can’t resist these things. I think God is using these hard times to teach us a lesson. He wants us to have faith in him and trust him during these harsh times so we can grow stronger spiritually. I also want to thank God for Liyuan. We had a wonder year together. We had our ups and downs but at the end we know that there is a God that loves us and taking care of our relationship. I want to pray for next year that I will build a stronger relationship with God, to focus on school, tests and jobs.
