The Truth Is...

The truth is, I'm happy a new year is beginning. I'm usually not that great with goodbye's, but I'm really ready to say "Goodbye" to 2012. For us, it has been a tough one. I don't want to relive specifics, but we've been through some battles emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially. I know these challenges have stretched me and caused my heart to be changed.  I totally realize my tough times are relatively small in comparison to what many have faced this past year. I will continue to pray for others and won't dwell on me.  Movin' on! 

I'm looking forward to a fresh start. There is excitement stirring from within to get recharged and refocused on our adoption journey. Our road hasn't looked how we thought it would, that's for sure. We can't wait to see how God leads us in this area of our lives. Keep us in your prayers as we continue to say "Yes!" with no reservations. We're blessed to have an adoption consultant and friend who has held our hands and loved us through this roller coaster ride called adoption. She's priceless. If you've considered adoption, let me tell you first hand, Tracie is the first contact you should make! Read here to see some of the beautiful families whose lives have been touched by adoption because she walked beside them on their journey. Amazing! And also, read here to see what another precious friend has to say about Tracie. 

How are you starting your New Year? Any resolutions? I've always made the cliche' ones, you know, lose weight, eat better, etc. Not going to go there this year. Do I want those things? Yes, but my focus is simply less of me, more of Him. I want to be more of His hands and His feet. That should pretty much cover everything else! I pray 2013 is truly a year of God's richest blessings for each of you and your precious loved ones.


Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 

Matthew 5:13-16
