I cannot believe another year has passed. It seems like we just started 2016. Usually by the end of the year I am sad to see a new one approaching, because it means I’ll be turning another year older and my children will be another year closer to becoming adults and leaving me behind. I think this year I have finally realized that it is inevitable and I just need to embrace it.
I’m looking forward to 2017 and all of the challenges, changes, learning experiences, love and laughter it will bring. With excitement and anticipation, I am dedicating 2017 to the Lord for my entire family. I simply cannot wait to see what He does for and through us in the upcoming year. I am no longer apprehensive about what problems we will encounter because I know He is in control. Even though it isn’t always a pleasant experience to be shaped and molded by Him through life’s experiences, I am looking forward to the end result. I want to be more like Him, whatever it takes.
Before we have a chance to blink, we will be reminiscing about 2017 and 2018 will be approaching. I pray that by this time next year we will all be closer to God and becoming even more like Jesus than we were the previous year. I pray that 2017 brings you joy and blessings, and that it will be full of God’s favor for you and your family!
