One year in one sentence

Can you describe your year in one sentence? 

At the end of another academic season, how would you summarise this past year at uni in just one phrase?

As a words-person, I find it hard to be concise sometimes. Mum always used to tell me my essays said the same thing in four different ways, as she sliced through my paragraphs before deadlines. 

Maybe I would describe my final year of uni like this: Best year of the three course-wise, but felt ready to leave before it began so itching to get on with the adventure after graduation now.

Maybe if I tried to be more faith-specific, I'd say: Learning to rest, excited and nervous for the leap of faith into water out of my depth up ahead, but seeing God's provision break through. 

I wonder, what's your one year in one sentence?

There are amazing stand-alone sentences in the bible that say something huge in such a concise set of words. Like, "Jesus wept." or "Love never fails." 

And of course, the famous bible-summarising passage of John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." You can say a lot in a sentence.

So, over to you. Can you bottle your last year into one sentence? Comment below and I'll tweet it back out (so yes, it's got to be under 140 characters!).

Reflect on what has been, sum-up that journey, and then... well then you can move forward,  in light of what you've learnt... I wonder what next year will bring?
