Wrapping 2012

The books are almost closed on 2012.

I can’t believe it.

Seems like the year just started and at the very least, seems like it should be mid-year. But no, it’s been a full year – almost. So much has happened. So many things that shape our lives have been carried out in 2012. Some good – some not so good.

I think about the ways in which several lives were lost. That’s the not so good.
I think about the ways in which several lives were changed by connecting with God. That’s the so good.
I think about the ways in which I allowed defeat to beat me. That’s the not so good.
I think about the ways in which I surrendered and allowed God to use me. That’s the so good.

2012, just like any other year, will be summed up in our perspective. How we choose to remember it. I choose to remember it all – the good and the not so good because they both shaped me this year. And for that, I’m certain that I’m stronger. Wiser. Better. And as I look to 2013, should the Lord allow me to see it, I’m excited. I don’t know what the year holds, but I do know Who holds it. And right now, that’s enough.
