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.
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.
