A (somewhat) honest look at what it's like to be a single, Christian woman in her mid 30s in Sydney who wants to remain true to the life that God has planned for her but doesn't want to let go of her dream of being in a relationship again and eventually being a wife and mother

The Last Post ( for now )

A year ago today I wrote my very first post on this blog. It was two days after my birthday and I was sad because despite having a lovely celebration the next day I spend the official evening by myself and blew out the candle on my cupcake on my lonesome. 

As I blew out that candle I sobbed to God that this be the year that I meet someone, that this time of singlehood would finally come to an end. 

And as you can tell if you've stuck around, it has not.

But it's ok because as you can also tell He has blessed me with different learning experiences, fun times, sad times, friendships, repairing of friendships and other 'drawing me closer to Him' times in the meantime. 

There have been potential Bachelors come and go and now I'm taking a rest from online dating and trusting Him and seeing what He can do. 

I've been working on getting my fitness and my body back and I've lost 10kg in the past 11 weeks. 

I have a peace that I can hardly describe because He keeps holding my hand and taking the root killer out and ripping out the root causes to my anxiety and perfectionism. 

He gave me an out with the job situation that was causing my life to become a tangled mess and brought out the insecurities in both myself an in other people. 

New friendships were made solid thought it all and old friendships were tested but have come out the otherside different but hopefully stronger. 

I'm content and stretched at the same time.

And ready for the next 365 days.

Just not sure how often I'll be blogging about it.  I promise I'll be back if anything exciting happens of if I start dating or if I meet someone but for now this blog is going to have a bit of a rest. 

Thank you so much for those of you that read this regularly, commented, ever commented, prayed or are just reading this now. I am always contactable via 365christianandsingle@gmail.com and I will be popping back and reading your blogs. 

A Time for Everything
 1 There is a time for everything, 
   and a season for every activity under the heavens:

 2 a time to be born and a time to die,
   a time to plant and a time to uproot,
 3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
   a time to tear down and a time to build,
 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
   a time to mourn and a time to dance,
 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
   a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
 6 a time to search and a time to give up,
   a time to keep and a time to throw away,
 7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
   a time to be silent and a time to speak,
 8 a time to love and a time to hate,
   a time for war and a time for peace.

-234 Not so random thoughts

....I watched Once Upon a Time and thought of Jeanine from Wayfaring Girl on a Mission and prayed for her  and her family this past week, so sad for her loss but grateful for the certainty that she has about her Mum's salvation. But I also wish that I could have teleported myself over there this week to give her a quick hug too. 

....I saw a rainbow last week and I thought of Gail from Gail's Angle's new blog design and how she loves the rainbow tag cloud at the bottom of her page......

....I was in McCafe grabbing a coffee yesterday morning when I spied some animal crackers on the shelf and I wondered if Shannon had given up on her blog ( no she hasn't ) and that I now can't look at animal crackers without thinking inside my head "Shanimal's Crackers". True......

.....I was in a crazy classroom this afternoon and I thought of Chronicler from Annals of  Christian Single and her Tales of a Classroom in her early posts and I wondered how she would go in this one. And came to the conclusion that she would love it! ......

....I walked past a sock shop the other day and spied some Rainbow knee socks. Of course I associated them with Ms Blase from The Unpopular Girl in Womanhood and how I always have to copy and paste her name into my comments and I really need to ask her to tell me a shortcut to type her name properly ;).....

....and my Mum was talking about her cyber friend Michelle the other day and I immediately thought of the lovely Michelle that comments on my posts here and has always been so encouraging and supportive......
