December is on it's way right out the door...it just seems like minutes ago that I had pulled out the Christmas decorations and was hanging them up. Funny how if you blink in life it seems like you might just miss something.
I don't know about you but I am really looking forward to the new year. We already know there will be some challenges for us, it is looking like our family is going to be facing unemployment. But even with some challenges up ahead we are still feeling rather hopeful.
Many times the change that you dread is actually the change that you need.
For me with the new year ahead I kind of felt like it was permission to let things go that weren't working and embrace a different way of doing things. Try and start fresh again. Of course you can do this anytime of the year but there really is something inspirational about the calendar changing isn't there??
I really am hoping to just do more of what I love with my family in the new year.
More homeschooling, photography, hiking, sewing, good food, horses, gardening, art and crafts, being with family etc.... You know all of that good stuff that we have been so blessed with.
I will leave you with some pictures of our December and some positive words to see you out this year!
Wishing you a Most Blessed 2013!
Filled with Love, Hope, and Grace
May you be so overflowing with blessing this year that you
have an abundance to share with others.
Happy New Year!

"You shall not go with haste,...for the LORD will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard." Isaiah 52:12
As we go forth into the coming year, let it not be in the haste of impetuous, forgetful delight, nor with the quickness of impulsive thoughtlessness. But let us go out with the patient power of knowing that the God of Israel will go before us. Our yesterdays hold broken and irreversible things for us. It is true that we have lost opportunities that will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future. Let the past rest, but let it rest in the sweet embrace of Christ.
Leave the broken, irreversible past in His hands, and step out into the invincible future with Him.
