Welcome 2012!

I'm looking forward to what 2012 will bring.  There's always an exciting anticipation when the NEW YEAR rolls around, isn't there?  It's a cool feeling!  Today I'm going to free-flow my thoughts... I hope you're okay with that.  On this first day of 2012, I can't even begin to express how blessed I feel.  I have a loving and wonderful husband, who loves the Lord and his family.  I have 2 beautiful children who are healthy and full of joy (not always, but often).  My immediate family is across the country and the world, but we manage to stay in touch and care deeply for one another.  And God has placed us in a warm and wonderful church family.  

Today also marked the day in which we officially dedicated Elsie to the Lord in front of our family, friends, and church family.  It was a special day for Joel and I, to be able to present Elsie to God and commit to raising her in a Christ-centered and God-fearing home, as well as care for her spiritual formation.  It was great to initiate the year with such a significant event in her life, as well as ours, as parents.

And last but not least, I would like to officially write down my TWO "resolutions" for this coming year:
1.  Be more thankful
2.  Grow in knowledge of God

To put them into practice, I've decided to do 2 things.  I've decided to bring back the lost habit of writing random thank you notes.  I'll share more about this at a later post.  And I've also decided to 'attempt' to read the entire Bible this year.  More about this later as well.  I'll keep you posted on how things are going.  Until then...
