As we change calendars and move into a new year, I’ve wanted to look back at what this year has been. For me, 2010 has been a year of challenge. To remember I’m not alone and surrounded by a great cadre of family and friends. To press on when tired or fearful. To accept the path God’s given me.
Two-thousand ten has also been a year of teaching. Learning to be more creative. Learning to do more with less. Learning to find the goodness in a tricky situation. Learning to trust others, God, and myself.
Most importantly, 2010 has been a year of growth. Of realizing the ability to lead. Of continually remembering the calling I’ve been given and to live from there. Of creating a posture of hospitality and welcome for our soon-to-be newborn.
I’m “expectant” for 2011 and all it holds. And am grateful for being able to walk this journey with you.
Happy New Year!
