Have had a pretty low key New Years Eve weekend, which isn’t too bad considering I’m buried in post-vacation laundry! Looking forward to the Rose Bowl on Monday.

Guys, it’s been a good year and I am full of gratitude.

The Lord is always good and always present. He was evident in so many particular ways in my life this year. When I consider 2017, I am full of gratitude for all He has done and is doing.

This year closes on a high note for our little family. That hasn’t always been the case. Adulthood has certainly taught me the ebbs and flows, ups and downs. Yet through it all, the Lord continues to guide us and provide.

As this year closes and another begins, I trust Him with whatever comes and look forward to what’s in store. His will be done. ❤️
