2011

One year ago today, I never could have imagined what 2011 would bring.  The news of a long awaited pregnancy was still fresh in our minds, and we were busy sharing our excitement with friends and family.  My thoughts were filled with nursery colors, and I was already testing out baby names.

One year later, books on grief and suffering have replaced the baby name books.  Instead of doctor visits, we are expecting many counseling appointments.  And, instead of excitedly telling friends about our news, we are attempting to put into words the answer to the question, "How are you doing?" 

Yet, throughout all that 2011 brought us, the Lord has been faithful.  He has been with us every step of the way, and we know Him better now than we did in 2010.  This past year...with all its pain, suffering and joy...has been a gift.

I don't know what 2012 will bring.  But, I know the One who does. 

And, I want to know Him better this time next year.  So, I am making a few plans for the new year.  I hope to share more soon, but until then...I hope you have a wonderful first day of 2012!  Happy New Year!
