Monday Musings: Best 12 (13) of 2012

I like to gather 12 or 13 pictures to represent my year. This year, I went through my photos and found 13 pictures that perfectly represented the year 2012. Enjoy.

This year has been such a blessed one! I like to find an area of growth, an area that needs work, and an area of blessing for each year. This past year, I grew in wanting to know God more and my faith, etc. I need to work on my kindness, thinking before I speak, and not being self-righteous/judgemental. I’ve been hugely blessed in the area of friendships and opportunities. I’ve hung out with so many people and gotten to know so many amazing friends. I pray that these friendships continue to develop and grow deeper in the Lord this coming year.

Monday Musings: Christmas

Ah, Christmas. The time of presents, joy, frankincense and myrrh…

I’m so thankful for all the wonderful things I’m able to have! I was thinking about how lots of people in the world aren’t fortunate enough to even have food on Christmas, let alone presents.

On that note, let me tell you that I got the Les Mis soundtrack…. :)50372-1215

maniacal laugh *muwahahaha* :)

I also got a sweater. and slippers, and The Eagle (great movie, btw), and a blazer from H&M that doesn’t fit because my shoulders are too big… and a coffee mug…

and Christmas dinner was delicious. Yummy roast, and asparagus, and bread, and potatoes. And for desert, a chocolate trifle.

Wow, I have so much to be thankful for.
