Welcome 2013...and age 26

In saying good-bye to 2012 and the age 25, I have to say that it's been another great year.  I am so thankful for all that has filled my year...

A healthy year for our entire family
A new priority for going to church and benefiting tremendously from that
Becoming a blogger, in my "free" time
A love for painting and a desire to create
Becoming addicted to Christian radio
An engagement for my sister, her happiness, and her move back to our side of town
A family beach vacation
A 3rd birthday for Keira
A 1st birthday for Alyssa
A new family car
Joining a small group
A marriage that gets stronger by the day
Finding pure joy in everyday moments
 The happiness that our family and time together brings us
And many many more things that filled our hearts with joy this past year...

This was just a tiny glimpse of what my year meant to me.  I am thankful for every day.  I know it all happens for a reason.  I'm looking forward to what God has planned for me and my family in his upcoming year.  Although getting in shape, finances, and success are all attractive resolutions, I know that putting God first is my ultimate resolution. Not only at the beginning of a new year but every day.  Putting God first is what will allow the rest to fall into place.  And although I have grown in my faith this past year, I still have so much growing to do.  And I'm looking forward to it!  Welcome 2013.  Happy New Year!
