One Year Later

It's been a year since I have posted anything.  2012 was quite a year - crazy work stuff that stretched me, a missions trip that stretched me in more ways than I can explain, emotional stuff that finally made me look at some of my habits and comforts (worry, fear - more on this later).  I can say that 2012 was a year that deepened my love and devotion to God.  I am so aware of how much I am in need of Him.

I feel like I need to document this journey.  One thing I have noticed is that when I have shared some more of the vulnerable parts of me... this is when I have noticed the most connection.  It was almost like I took off my mask and they took of their mask, and neither of us ran away.  Instead it drew us closer, and drew me closer to God.

So hopefully, in 2013, I will continue to spend my life well.  Spend it deepening the friendships 2011 and 2012 brought our way.  Spend it parenting in a God honoring way.  Committing our time to good things, and just the right amount of things.  Spending our money WELL (we are currently in a no spend month, more on this later).

So here we go 2013.  Let's make it a good one.
