I’ve been trying to decide if I should attempt to recap 2012 month by month, or in picture form, but I really feel overwhelmed at that thought. There is always so much life packed into 365 days- how do you condense it to 12 events or pictures? I’m grateful for the fullness in my life- all the places we go, people we love, missions we engage in- but it makes a recap nearly impossible.
So instead I will share a few of the defining moments of this year for me……
my mother in law’s surgery and recovery during May and June- exhausting but good time of pulling together as a family- so thankful she is recovering and better
reading the book Seven– humbling and challenging
Kyler getting his first job- aware that my first born is almost gone, less mothering to do-more praying
Klynt’s journey with physical therapy after his elbow surgery- exhausting but some good bonding
the Habakkuk series at City Church- paradigm shift, learning to remember and wait
speaking at the LCG conference- God using me in a new way, giving me new opportunities
taking Emma to get her ears pierced- mother-daughter relationship really growing this year
beginning my Women’s Group- creating deeper relationships for me as we all grow in our relationship with God
creating Millinery and blogging- a new adventure, writing- allowing me to be creative
2012. A challenging year for me on a spiritual level. I have learned a tremendous amount this year about the way the Gospel applies to every area of my life. I have enjoyed new friendships and been thankful for long standing relationships who are willing to continue to love me and point me to Jesus. I am grateful for my marriage, my children and my parents- all four of them (I have set a goal that none of them will have surgery next year!) I am aware of how quickly time passes, and am thankful for ways God has been teaching me to not waste that gift.
Happy New Year friends! Looking forward to sharing my 2013 journey with you!
