For as long as I can remember, I've loved the start of a brand new, fresh page year. This could never be more true than this year. To say that 2011 was one of the most difficult years I, and my family, have had to walk through would be an understatement. No parent should have to bury their own child.....but we did.
Now, we get to start a New Year with everyone well. We learned a lot in 2011 about keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus and keeping our faith strong, even when things didn't turn out as we had prayed. To trust God's love and faithfulness to us, even when His perfect will seems so imperfect to our earthly selves. One thing I know for sure, Heaven is more real to me today than it has ever been.
SO - bring it on 2012 I'm ready for any and all challenges you have for me and will deal with them with FERVENCY (the word God gave me for 2012), trusting in my Lord & Savior and the wonderful Triune God we serve.
