Picture cutesy of andsoidontforget
 God has been good this past year! He has blessed us so much. My family and I have had a lot of changes happen this past year. Some good some bad but all done for God's glory! lessons were learned and spiritually growth ensued (although we have a long way to go! but excited to do so this next year).

New Year, usually has New Years resolutions, and sadly most of them don't even last one week (sigh, I speak out of personal experience).
This next year is the year before I turn  ...30...(eeeeeeeek) this is NOT a happy birthday...I'm an NOT excited about this one. But to make myself believe it will be OK...I have come up with a 30 before 30 list. Some things won't get done I'm sure, but I can dream right?
So if you can or want to help with any of these...puhleeeese let me know... :-)
