So, guess what 20thirteen? This is going to be our year. Yes, our year!
20thirteen, at times you scared me – I have a hard time with change -- but now I am excited about what lies ahead of me. There will be ups + downs. Frustrations, no doubt. But I will learn to be less selfish with my time & overload love on my cherished ones
May 20thirteen. The month my husband and I made official the commitment of ourselves to one another forever. The month I traded my old name in for a new one. The month we got all gussied up before 34 of our closest friends and family. There is a special date marked in my calendar – our one year anniversary on the
In 20thirteen, I will engage more with the church. I will no longer be just a regular Sunday attendee, but I will become an active member of small groups and other events.
This year, I will learn who my real friends are, as I do every year. The ones who love me unconditionally -- no matter my flaws. I, myself, will strive to be less judgmental & more selfless. & more importantly I will continue to make God the center of my every day.
In 20thirteen, I will act on my creative ambitions & follow my heart, even if others think that it is silly -- because only I know what makes me truly happy. I am inspired to start painting again, and maybe even commission my work on down the road.
Late 20thirteen may even entail a new addition to our wonderful little family – a seedling that will fully bloom in 20fourteen -- a desire that’s been stirring in our hearts, pending favor to that of God’s will.
At one point I may start to second guess my decisions or choices I have made up to that point, but I want to remind myself now that “your mistakes are learning experiences & they will only make you a better person. Remember to hold that in your heart and not over think it.”
Before I sign off, 20thirteen is full of gorgeous moments that will take you by surprise, friends. Know that you are one-of-a-kind and there is no doubt this is your year, too. You will learn more about yourself and discern your calling in this world. And if you haven’t already, I hope and pray that you discover true JOY.
