2012 was a fantastic year! There were ups and downs, as always in this life, but it has been a joyful year for me. I'm looking forward to 2013, and I have plans and hopes ... but I've really learned that there is no way to predict how it may turn out. There is such a fine balance between planning/preparation and waiting on the Lord to see how things will unfold.
I was very optimistic about the start of 2012, I feel a bit more uncertain and hesitant about 2013 - I can't explain why, just my gut feeling. But I'm not worried or anxious. God has been so good to me.
I hope your year and your perspective are hopeful and open to possibility. I'll be ringing in the year with games and chili - what about you?
