Turning the Page

12.31.2014


Well, 2014 has come to a close just as quickly as it arrived. It seems like I just wrote this post, but apparently, that was 365 days ago.

It can be easy to focus on the things a year wasn't. To point out the things you didn't do or say. However, in doing so, those things wouldn't get done or be said. Fresh starts and new beginnings, I believe, are one of the ways God sheds His grace on us. That with the turning of a page, we have 365 blank ones to do with what we can and will. What a blessing that is! That is what we need to focus on as this sweet year ends; the multiple opportunities we will have in the coming year to serve God more; to give mercy and grace more freely; to love better.

2014 was a fun year for us...
+ We went to Disney World 
+ Survived a road trip that took us through seven states 
+ Spent an evening with Eric Church
+ Went to Boone multiple times 
+ Spent cherished time with family and friends 
+ Grew up a little bit more 
+ Learned to trust God more
+ Had an incredible Christmas
+ We were reminded on a daily basis of just how blessed we are 
....................................................................

I'm looking forward to 2015 and all that it will offer as well as take a way. Andrew and I are striving to live our lives as God has called, and with that, sacrifices inevitably come. 

Another thing I'm sorta excited about/dreading is my 30th birthday (my gosh those are scary words to type)! I'm currently working on a "30 before 30" list and I can't wait to share that with y'all! 

I hope you all have a great New Years Eve and pray 2015 is a blessed year for you and your family!

Happy New Year pretty lady! It's going to be an exciting year for you! I have no doubts about it. I have enjoyed going through my 30 before 30 list. Have fun creating it and then marking each of those things off. Cheers to what is in store.
