What Can Happen in a Year?
I couldn't have ever imagined our year would have been so fully packed. How could I have ever imagined what all would be in store for 2013? Thank you, God, for not allowing me to see the road ahead.
Look at my header. Somehow I picked pictures that would walk me through a year in which I had no idea of the fullness that awaited me.
November 2012 - Announcements of two of our children's engagements
Announcement of the process of adoption to begin for my first Grandbaby
November 2013 - Both adult children were married - March 3, 2013
September 1, 2013
Joshua was brought into the family - March 2013
Pregnancies were announced for daughter-in-law and daughter - March 2013
Both grandsons were born 2 days apart - November 16th and 18th, 2013!
We added five family members in one year. We supernaturally survived seven months of unemployment. We attended the weddings of both of our children, one in Italy. I saw my grandsons at birth or minutes later. I had my heart won over by a little guy who will always be my first grandchild...Joshua.
My blog header shows shoes and a road where you can't see the ending. I am walking in many new shoes and still not clear where I am headed. If 2013 has taught me anything, it has taught me that sometimes life just holds more than we could ever imagine. My God is a faithful God who knows when holding back information is one the greatest love gifts He can give His daughter. I end the Thanksgiving season with an overflowing heart. I enter the Christmas season with a humble heart, gratefully kneeling before the King of Kings.
