A Year in Review – 2013

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating last night!

Last year, when I wrote a year in a review, I listed all the sermons and notes I had taken. Since I made a tab with all my sermon notes, I thought that instead I would reflect on all the highlights of the year. These only skim the surface. Clearly, God has been so gracious to us this year! We are believing BIG things for 2014, including that we will be bringing our babies home! Can’t wait to see what is in store. If it is half as great as 2013, then we know we are in for an amazing ride!

    So I am completely jealous of these concerts! We have the same taste in music! It looks like 2013 was quite the year. I hope 2014 can measure up! 🙂

    That sounds like a great year indeed! When faced with a (sometimes) overwhelming challenge, it can be hard to keep living your life like the precious thing it is. You are a good example of someone who always tries and succeeds in doing that. All the best in 2014.
