“Never forget what Jesus did for you. Never take lightly what it cost Him. And never assume that if it cost Him His very life, that it won't also cost you yours.”
~Rich Mullins

Dec 31, 2014


And just like that, 2014 steps out the door. 
Makes its final farewells and vanishes.....never to return, never to be re-done, living on only in our memories and dreams. It's been a year fuller than I ever could have imagined. 

It's been full of hardship - and I've learned that God is faithful
It's been full of joy - and I've been reminded that God is so good
It's been full of memories - and I understand more fully the value of family and friends
It's been full of mistakes - and I've seen that God still accepts me even when I'm a failure
It's been full of growing - and God's shown me that pain and hardship are what grows me the quickest
It's been full of wonder - and I hope that the little things never lose their meaning

It's a year I will never forget.....a year that will forever be deeply imprinted on my heart and mind.

 Looking ahead to 2015 is daunting. 
Breathtakingly exciting.

I know that God has a year planned that is full of the marvelous, mysterious, awe-inspiring course that He has for my life. And for your life. 

My prayer for this next year is that my faith grows in leaps and bounds and that I am able to embrace whatever is ahead with open arms and a willing heart. 
Not just willing.
