As sit on this last day of 2013 trying to allow my body to overcome whatever bug it is currently fighting and enjoy reading other people’s reflections of their year, I thought I’d try the same. To say this year has been full of changes is a gross understatement.
This year I have:
- become a puppy mom
- become a pulpit supply preacher
- gotten engaged
- learned both Hebrew and Greek (at least partially)
- become a puppy mom again
- become a pastor
- gotten married to the man of my dreams (yes, you can get engaged and married in the same year!)
- become a mom to two precious daughters
- become a reverend
- become a book publisher
Looking at that list, I think the bug I have might be fatigue!
I don’t know if you’ve ever experienced a year like I have this year, when it seems that you’re life has meaning and purpose. If you have, treasure it, as I will. If you haven’t, tomorrow starts a new year with new hope and new beginnings, make it worthwhile.
As I am nestled here in my cozy cocoon taking it easy, I realize I am blessed to be nestled in a cocoon of love, peace, and hope thanks to a husband who believes in me and continues to support my crazy dreams and a church who dares to be different.
May you soon be nestled in a similar cocoon, so you can open your wings and see the beauty of the world.
