Monday, December 30, 2013


This year has flown by! I feel like we were just at the end of December 2012. As days fly by, it is so easy to focus on the negative and what we don't have, but want. In 2014 I want to be a more thankful person. A person who complains less, rejoices more and radiates God's love. Apart from God, none of this will happen. With God all things are possible. I am making a list of the blessings God has given and things that I am thankful for as 2013 comes to a close. This list is just a beginning...there is so much more.
