Becoming More Like Christ in the New Year — 8 Comments

  1. What a lovely tribute to some angels in disguise in your life, Karen. May we all fulfill that role in someone else’s life in the coming year.

    • Thank you, Kristi. I agree with what you said. May we all be an angel in disguise for someone in the new year.

  2. Another wonderful essay. Isn’t it wonderful to have angels come into our life when they are most needed. I know God will continue to bless you in the future. He just wants us to love and trust Him.
    Happy New Year to you and your family.

    BTW, you were my angel when I was learning to write and I’ll never forget you.

    • Thank you, Marie. It’s a pleasure to be someone’s ‘angel’ to a person like you who learned and applied all that you received. God bless you and your writing.

  3. Dear Karen, thank you for writing such a beautiful essay to remind me to count my blessings in life … surviving a harsh life as an unwanted girl in China, I’ve certainly had a lot of angels to aid me along my life journey … and you became my turning-point angel in life when I came to Mt. Hermon writers’ conference … I think of you often as I praise our Lord Jesus for bringing you in my life as a shining guidance in Christ. Thank you, Karen.

    • You are so kind, Jing. It’s clear that God has provided many loving angels in your life. I’m humbled to be told that I am one of them. God bless you.

  4. Hi Karen, as per normal, a good piece of writing. I’d like to think that we all have had mentors and encouragers in our lives. I’ve also had people in my life who helped me be who I am today. Mom was the consummate encourager in my life. She was always there when I got a rough patch or had something to say if there was a challenge in my life. I’ve got a sister who is my best friend and like myself, loves the Lord with all of her heart. My pastor off a few years back helped me when I was overwhelmed because of my divorce and didn’t see things that I would have normally. And like Marie and Jing you have helped me in my life to not give up on my writing and helped me tremendously in my efforts, to which I say “Thank you Karen.” GBY and keep writing.

    • Thank you for your kind words, Jim. You are one of my students I am most proud of because you did not give up. You persisted and you’ve succeeded in using the gift God has given you. May your writing flourish in the new year.
