Happy New Year! This year our family had many firsts. There were first baseball games, first fishing trips, first trophies, and first day of school ever! I went back through my Instagram feed and took a few shots that captured each month. What a blessing it was to go through all of those. I am continually amazed at the blessings God has given us and in fact, just how much he loves each and everyone of us. I pray that you have a wonderful New Year this 2013 and I am so grateful that you all keep coming back to this little blog of ours. If you have never done this, I would encourage you to take just a few minutes and look back on the photo stories of your life from last year. If you are looking for encouragement you are sure to find it. You will also see the little details of life you may have already forgotten about.
“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3: 13-14
