Reflections of 2012

Can't believe that 2013 is almost here.  Have been thinking off and on today about this past year.  The plans we had, the events that happened that we had no clue were going to happen, watching how God continued to provide for us, wondering what was going to happen next and through it all continuing to trust Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Claiming his promise as shared in 

Jeremiah 29:11-13
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Happy New Year to all our friends & family!!!
