We are also blessed with a loving church family. It is so awesome to be a part of this body of Christ and to do God's work with them and to worship the Lord with them. I have grown so much in my faith in the last several years. I still have far to go on my journey, but it is because of my faith that I can have joy in the hard parts and appreciate the struggles. No, my life is not perfect and there are hard times. But there is joy in the Lord. With the new year, comes change. Change is a constant in this world. However, I find joy in the fact that the one thing that never changes are God's promises and God's love. He is who he says He is....today, tomorrow, forever.
I hope for us all--a year of gratefulness for all the good, that faith and hope are abound during the struggles and that I can be the hands and feet of God in all of the ways He plans.
Happy New Year!
