Auld Lang Syne

Happy New Year, everybody!  Does anybody have any resolutions or goals for this year?  I don't yet, at least not written down.  

Last year (it's weird typing that) went by way too fast.  I did make some of the best friends I have ever had though.  They are all pretty fantastic.  

Before you go any farther, I warn you that this post might be very sporadic and random because I just had a hardcore workout and drank a cup of coffee right after, so I'm just a wee bit hyper.  

This year I had a very low key New Year, but it was great.  Me and one of my best friends, Abbey, had a spa/movie night before we watched the ball drop.  We whitened our teeth with activated charcoal (works wonders), did green mud facials, and watched Seven Brides for Seven Brothers for the first time.  Funny, but strange...

Last year was bittersweet.  So many memories packed into one year.  I really couldn't have asked for a better year.  I am one blessed girl that's for sure.  

I saw the Lord's faithfulness displayed more then I ever have before.  Some moments that stand out in particular, was when He broke me before Him.  Even though those moments were painful and heartbreaking at the moment, I now see that God used each and every one of those trials to bring glory to Him, grow me closer to Him, and reveal His character to me.  

I am hopeful for 2013.  I pray that I will allow the Lord's plan to play out in my life instead of my own this year. I pray that all of you have a wonderful year filled with opportunities to share Christ's love to those around us.  It is what we are called to do as Christ-followers after all.
