Most of my written blogs are healthy reflections mainly of a realization or reaction I have to the things about me.
Today will not be any different.
I would like to reflect on the year of ’13. It’s been a year full of blessings. Without going through every single one of the, because that would be a super long list, I just want to concentrate on a few.
Our first big blessing was when our second child asked Jesus into his heart. He has grown so much since that day as well which has been an amazing site to see. Our first child asked Jesus into her heart about 4 years ago. It makes me so happy to know that they are both looking to God. I pray that continues through all of the times ahead.
We were so fortunate to be able to go with our church on a mission trip. It was a trip where we met new people, but mostly where we were able to talk about what Jesus does for us–daily. I love being able to share Him no matter where we are. The mission helped both of my children immensely in their walk as well and I believe strengthened our family as a whole.
Disney. The trip to Disney we were able to go on was a trip of many firsts. From first plane rides to seeing the most magnificent fireworks display I’ve ever witnessed. As they say, it was magical! I know God allowed us to do this and I thank Him for giving us trips like these to enrich our lives. He blesses us with so much!
I was blessed personally with so many different things that, as I said before, I’d be here all night typing about them all. I believe the more I thank God for the blessings He pours on us, the more He rains them down. Blessed, blessed, SO BLESSED!
As this day comes to an end and the new day, new YEAR is rung in, I just want to keep praising God for allowing it all. No matter what 2014 has in store, I know that WITH GOD, it will be AMAZZZZZZZZZZZZZZING–with some extra ZING! He promises us that through Him, we will do good works! He’s got it all ready for us… I’m so excited!
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
