Yet another year come and gone.
We started off this year with a heavy heart and great loss in our family. My grandfather passed January 3, 2012. I am thankful for the hope in Jesus Christ that I will one day see him again. (You can read my remembrance blog on his life here.)
What followed in the months after his death have been a little surprising to me. I have been on a roller coaster of sorts this year. Many mini trials have tested my faith. I have been contemplating and praying about how much of the ride I should share in the coming year. I hope to follow up on this blog with some of those experiences.
My writing is not for venting, boasting, or searching for acceptance and/or understanding. I write because I am a writer, albeit, not the greatest! :) It is a SMALL gift from the Lord I embrace and choose to pursue. It is my creative outlet. I have other outlets as well, but nothing allows me the freedom to pour out my heart like writing. Lastly, I aim to please, honor and glorify my Savior first of all. I pray that anything that is said and posted on this site will be a blessing to someone else's heart.
I am ending this year on a high note! Though trials come and go (and some stay) I have always found my victory in my Savior! He has always been there for me. He always will! I can think of so many ways that God chose to bless me this year. So, as I look back on 2012 I am looking forward with my banner held high...Come what may, Christ is on my side!
Happy New Year and blessings for 2013 from our family to yours!
