In a lot of ways I'm so happy to
leave 2012 behind and move into a fresh new year. But David and I did learn a lot in 2012 and God changed us through several hard circumstances. For that, we can always remember 2012 as a year of growth and learning.
We trusted God this year more than ever before. And God was faithful. We learned that there is so much beauty in the pain, that we are stronger and braver than we thought, and that with God, we really can conquer anything.
Beautiful lessons. I am living more thankful than ever before.
It's so easy to get busy and forget to really talk to God or to your spouse on a meaningful level. To all of the sudden realize a year or two have gone by and there has been no growth.
I pray that, in 2013, David and I continue to grow closer to God together and separately and that we teach our boys about God's love for them so that they trust and love him every day of their lives.
