Is anyone else having a hard time realizing another year is over? For some reason I go through this feeling every 6 months, once at the new year and at my birthday…hopefully that doesn’t make me twice as old!
At the beginning of the year, I choose to abide in God more this year. To endure without yielding and more accurately to bear patiently(Thanks Webster for the official definition). If only I knew how much abiding I would be doing I may have chosen a different word. Initially I decided on abide because I really wanted to learn how to wait on God, in prayer, in my faith and in finding a church home.
Here is my 2013 in review:
January- I began working at Eye Specialist for Animals, 2 days a week. It was the most challenging and exciting job I have had outside of ClarkeStudio Photography. I was challenged to continue learning and work with an amazing variety of people.
February- I began volunteering with DreamPower Animal Rescue!
April- Hubby and I went on our very 1st road trip…Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming
May- I began volunteering with Teller County Regional Animal Shelter! And we spent a weekend away in the Mountains!
June- We celebrated our 6th Wedding Anniversary
August- Hubby completed his Chaplain Pastoral Education Training and we focused all our efforts on his job search and Asher and I discover Rampart Reservoir!
September- Colorado Springs Balloon Classic! (not much happened…really)
October- Hubby and I went to Victor to see the fall color and the Air Force vs Notre Dame Game and moved out of our house and moved in with our friends Liz and Matt
December- Hubby is ordained at our home church in Waco, we go to the last game at Floyd Casey Stadium and a Hospice in Montrose calls hubby and offers him a full time position, and housing was easy to find! We move in less than a week of being offered the position! Merry Christmas to us! Liz and Matt get married in Estes Park!
My word for 2014 is hope, to expect with confidence and to cherish a desire with anticipation. Hope for Hubby’s new job, our new home town and our future.
