See ya 2012....HELLO 2013

2012 In Review

Our family started off the year on a HIGH note. Our sweet Everett was born 1-11-12

Estella finished her first year of school in June 

Sophie started Pre-K in August

And Khloe...Well Khloe only went to the hospital once.
(if anyone knows our family you know that Khloe is my clumsy girl)

We had alot of ups this year and are so blessed to have the wonderful life God has given us.

On that note I want to get on my soapbox for a moment. Given then horrible events that happened in Connecticut I cant help but look at the world in a different light. I was in high school when the Columbine tragedy happened. And then as mother with children in school this happens. I cant help but wonder if God is trying to tell us something. He is trying to bring this world closer to him. He is trying to show us that we need him and when we have him in our hearts they will NEVER grow cold.

So with that said I believe that in 2013 we should work everyday to become closer to the Lord. To witness to the people who do not know him and bring them to him. This world has gone further and further away from him and honestly it is getting worse with everyday that passes. I could sit here and list all of the horrible things that happened in this world in 2012 but instead I want to look to 2013 as the year that it changes. The year that the world came together to make it a better place for our children to grow up in.

 Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105)

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)

Without faith, it is impossible to please God. For he who comes to God must believe He exists, and rewards those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

Come to Me, all you who are weary and weighed down with heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in spirit. Indeed, you will surely find rest in Me! My yoke is easy, and My burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30)
