Glad to see 2011 come to an end. It certainly hasn't been the hardest year of my life, but it sure as heck hasn't been the easiest. And the last two weeks have been challenge after challenge, which snuck up on me after a great start to the month.
UPS and DOWNS...but just a difficult year. I learned a lot and grew tons...but growing is never more fun. As my roomie once told me, "Change and growth are supposed to hurt. After all, the Bible calls it a refiners fire, that doesn't sound like fun!"
Despite the several breakups - which suck even if you do the ending, the struggles at work, the constant growing in my faith (which is a fire like the Bible says), I had many blessings, my favorite two being my nephew Jack and the Auburn National Championship.
Headed out of town for new years...so here's wishing all of us a great 2012-- full of more ups than downs and many many blessings. But, if the year holds more challenges than blessings, I pray we all know God's presence and comfort in a real way.
I am trying to decide on my 2012 life verse. My 2011 life verse turned out to be perfect!
Rom 12:12 Be Joyful in Hope, Patient in Affliction, Faithful in Prayer.
Any good ideas for a 2012 verse?
