out with the old.....

happy new year, friends.

2011 was a pretty amazing ride at our house. nothing we could have ever done would have prepared us for all that God had for us in 2011. the good, the bad, the ugly and the lovely. 

either way, i'm ready for 2012. i'm sure there will be a lot of twists & turns in store for us, as there will be for most of you. i don't know too many people who predict what their year is going to look like & then it comes to be. but if that happens - good for you! i, on the other hand, like not knowing. if i don't know what's around the next corner i can't be anxious, nervous, or afraid of it, right? 

when i was power shopping yesterday morning, i saw on one of the windows "this is YOUR year." and i thought, "yeah! it's going to be MY year." my year to be the best mom, wife, friend, support, servant, blessing that i can be. my year to fall in love with the Lord further than my wildest imagination. my year to serve my husband with a "happy heart" {a favorite phrase at our house!}. my year to turn 30.

my year.

because i can't get 2011 back. because i only have ONE 2012. 

my year.

here's to YOUR year... and all that the Lord has in store for you. i pray that it will be more wonderful than you could resolve it to be.
