2012, Thank You!

It's almost a wrap--the end of 2012. Well according to the Mayans,  December 21st was sure to be our end. :-) But no one knows the day or the hour!  Thank God we're still here! 

Usually endings signal a desire to reflect back on what has been, lessons learned, resolutions, goals, etc. However, endings create opportunities for beginnings. I'm a firm believer not in holding on to the past but learning from it. So if we're blessed to see 2012 close and witness the start of 2013, we should face it wiser, smarter and with a renewed spirit!

I would love for you to share some of your reflections here. You all already know how I feel about sharing :-); your story gives another strength and permission to open up as well. Let's see. I guess I'll start by telling you what WHAT 2012 TAUGHT ME:


  • Strength is readily available. When I had moments of weakness, God's strength carried me. His strength can come through His Word, preachers, teachers, songs, family, friends or just by embracing a beautiful day.
  • I really do like to cook! It's calming. I love that it's another outlet for creative expression. Every now and then, my dishes are even a big hit with my family and friends! Right? lol
  • God's will WILL be done! Bottom line!
  • Don't let fear stop you! God did not give us a spirit of fear. Therefore, when you feel scared, keep moving forward in the knowledge that the fear is not your truth.
  • Fortune cookies sometimes carry helpful words. :-) "Never hang on too long. Never let go too soon."
  • You cannot rush the process. Everything happens in God's timing.
  • Love can be peaceful, joyful and so consuming that it overwhelms you. If this was the only thing 2012 taught me, I'd still be abundantly grateful for this year!
What has 2012 taught you, friends?
