Out With the Old – In With the New

1 Jan

New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are very interesting for me. I spend the first day reflecting on the past year, and the second day looking forward to the year ahead. That is 730 days of thoughts packed into 2 days.

Some of the highlights from last year:
My newest niece was born, 4 of my nieces and nephews asked Jesus in their hearts, my husband had the privilege of baptizing all of them, our 8th anniversary, our trip to Fort Lauderdale, our trip to our summer “ocean” – Lake Erie, one of the biggest bus kid big days we’ve ever had, several kids and adults who got saved because of the bus ministry, a new bus route started, countless good memories with family, the teens, and our bus route, the Lord’ s provision and blessings through it all!

Some of the low points:
No baby, our first full year without grandpa,  the death of Bro. Mellor, the month of December, a.k.a the month of the flu,

Looking forward to 2013:

Mike will finish his degree, our trip to Hawaii, making a decision as to where God wants us to go and what he wants us to do, and who knows what else!!!!

Here is looking ahead to having a better year than last year, being a better person than last year, and trying to be a bigger help to those around me.

Happy 2013 – thank you, Lord, for bringing us another year to serve you!
