December third, 2010

Hello, world.

Today I've started up a new blog. The beginnings are always the end of something else. And although I feel that I will someday return to my kharkovgirl blog, Memoirs of an MK, life is changing and I'm changing with it.

So much has happened in my relatively small and simple life this year. It is no longer small or simple. And as much as I can wish for things to return to the way they were... dream about it or pray for it... things will never be the same. I'm lousy at coping. It's been 9 months since I felt the first spasm along my ribcage in March and my life changed forever, and I'm just getting to the point where I feel that someday I'll be healthy again... maybe. It's been 7 months since I lost my college and the direction of my future, and I'm just now beginning to fill out the registration forms of another university. It's been 97 days since I last saw my best friend. Another 24 more to go on that one, but the visit will be briefer than the last by almost 50%.

This month I'm going to be packing. Pulling my suitcases down from the attic, dusting off the trace of time, and trying to think about the future. It's going to be hard.

I wanted to start this blog to help me through the first awful semester at the new college. But this month, before I even arrive, is going to be filled with some much preparation for that awaiting path that I decided to start up, now. To capture the moments that will lead up to the dreaded Day Number One....

God's Word has been a fundamental part of my life, and with each blog post, I would like to leave one verse that God is working in my thoughts.

For today... it's Psalm 139:10. A verse that was introduced into my life back in March, through the most unlikeliest of people, in the most impossible of situations, and for a very desperate purpose. Through every valley thereafter, this verse has stayed in my heart. Today is no exception.

Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
Psalm 139:10
