There were big laughs, fun vacations (whose pictures are littered in this post), lots of big life decision moments, and good conversations. (and more of course!!!)
Sometimes I wish I could invite everybody over and just share all the stuff that goes on. Because life goes on. In mine and in yours.
But instead, I'll just give ya a chance to read some posts (that I'm sure you've already read because of course you did right? Oh no, well, you're welcome! HERE they all are again) from 2012.
I was trying to decide how to do a recap post and I realized that my favourites are the ones where people point to the words they wrote that impacted themselves and their life the most. Well, that and the funny ones. But I've only recently ventured into sharing my funny self online. 2013 will be more authentically me - dancing, Jesus, laughter, Jesus, dancing, silly faces, bad pictures, and lotsa fun!
So here is 2012 in links to words:
Turning 23 and dressing up a nautical themed party!
Hearing God tell me "why are you worrying about that? Just wait a couple pages. I've got your whole book up here".
Making the name change from from the sight of a city girl to a Secondary Heartbeat. THIS WAS BIG PEOPLE! It took me a long time to make a decision on a name. The design process was already happening back here so you can imagine how indecisive I was to take until recently to actually have the final design up.
Recognizing that grace is not a DIY. (I should probably reread this post to myself every single day. Because I forget this every single day).
Reflecting with girls I've known since elementary school how though we've known God our whole lives, our faith is still so fresh and growing.
A friend of mine describes facebook as the devil's playground which makes me want to throw up.
Not because I disagree - because I do agree - but because everything in the entire world is the devil's playground.
The earth is his playground.
This is his territory.
If we let one thing become his (as in we decide in our mind that if only we get rid of that one thing then our sin issue will be gone), we've forgotten that he has a sense of dominion here.
So . . .
