well hello, 2012!

Jesus has a wonderful way of restoring us when we fail Him!
He does no humiliate us.
He does not criticize us.
He does not ask us to make a resolution to try harder.
Rather, He takes us aside and asks us to reaffirm our love for Him.

Experiencing God Day by Day,
Henry Blackaby & Richard Blackaby

I really can't tell you how thankful I am that 2011 is over.
As many of you know,
the first year of adoption, particularly the first half,
is often grueling. The enemy hates it when we step out in faith
to do Kingdom work, and by golly, it makes him downright
teeth-gnashing-mad when we fight hard to press on,
even when it's dang difficult.

I'm so excited about 2012.
After an amazingly great message at church this weekend
about fasting, I'm so stoked to receive God's blessings that come
only through that discipline.

I've also got a few "resolutions" lined up.
Though, I hate to call them that.
It really all just comes down to living out what God has called us to do
in the first place...

To be better stewards of our time, talents, and everything else He
has so richly blessed us with.

Now get out there and do it!
Let's go, go, go!
Fight, team, fight!
Hip-hip, hooray!

That reminds me, Lucy came in the house this afternoon
crying hysterically because she dropped her
pom-pom on her forehead.

How will this girl ever make it as a perky cheerleader?
I do not know.

Moving on.

Now if I could only find my cord for my camera,
I'd post a pic or two.

That would fall into the, being-an-organized-steward, category.

Baby steps.

Celebrate & serve in 2012, everyone!!

Love Henry Blackaby....

BTW, if you don't find your camera card, you can get a camera card reader at WalMart for about $10. :) Not that I would know..or ever lost one...or anything. :)

I'm sorry I haven't commented much lately, but I've always loved your posts :) your quote from Blackaby reminds me of something that Blackaby shared, which I kept on the shelf, I'll go look for it :) (soon!) ha
