2013 a New Year


2013 is here. Well less than 24 hours away. This year has stretched me, changed me, and challenged everything about my life.

To be honest I'm glad this year is coming to a close.
I'm thankful that I've made it through this year.

I love that my blog has grown. I have loved interacting with the blog world. I've met new friends. And have had some really great support and love that has been sent my way.

Through this year my relationship with God has changed. Its become more intimate. When we lost Hope I didn't know if I could take another breath. If I would make it. But every day, moment by moment God gave me the strength to go on. My prayer has changed, my perspective has changed....

Grief is a monster. Its something that can take over your life. It tried its best to take me down. But God never left me.

This year I have grown closer to my friends. Women I trust and know love me and have my back. They will fight for me and not with me.  I've been able to be apart of some special moments with them. Love my girls!

My family has been through some tough stuff this year and we have had some blessings as well! God had kept us safe, brought us through trials, healed us from sickness.

Josh and I have been on some roller coaster. We have faced some difficult things. But we have kept God in the center of our marriage. We have prayed and clung to God and each other. Our marriage is even stronger then it was. I do believe I fell in love with my husband even more through this year.

God has done amazing things in our church. Our Jr. High class has grown and so has our entire team in the Childrens ministry. Its amazing and I'm so thankful! I know God has big things planned for HCF!

I do not know what 2013 holds but I'm placing my faith and trust in God. He has  a plan.

I pray everyone has a great and safe New Years!!

  1. Hasta la vista 2012! Hello 2013! NO New Years Resolution for me! I read the facts and it said almost 17% of New Years resolution are kept and successful after at least 7 years of trying!! What?? OK then, I could reverse this and say I plan to gain at least 30 lbs and be a couch potato or even watch more news! So reverse that! Haha! Love ya Lauren! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
