Goodbye and Thank You 2011


While reflecting tonight with my family on what 2011 held for us, I was awestruck  with appreciation for the joy we experienced.

There were, of course, difficult and painful times. But—-they were tempered with tremendous contentment and gratitude. The pleasures were numerous, inspiring, and fun. We learned deep lessons about expectations and disappointments. Yet, walked away with an even deeper lesson about trusting God’s timing. And it was good.

Thank you for reading my blog, I am humbled. I appreciate your companionship as these life lessons are recorded here. May you be richly blessed in this coming year. Welcome 2012. Looking forward to seeing what is on the road ahead…
