Looking Back on the Year

​2014. This has been quite the year for us (and there are still a few weeks left).

I’ve loved 2014. My phone that I’m typing this on just auto corrected that to I’ve “lived” 2014, and I feel that is spot on.

Looking back on this year makes me think of Ephesians 3:20:

all glory to God, who is able,
through his mighty power at work within us,
to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

My “one little word” for 2014 was do. Wow, did that ever happen!

We visited California. And met some friends.
We moved. Twice.
We camped, a few times.
We enjoyed nature, even eating out in it.
We made new friends. And lived life with old ones.
I caught my first fish (and second)!
We spent time with family.
We explored our province.
I read a lot of books.
I tried a lot of new recipes. Some worked, others didn’t.
We began to live simpler.
We began to get some answers to prayers we have been praying for years.
We saw a photo of the boy chosen to be our son. Met him. And then he became ours.

I couldn’t have imagined 2014 to turn it better if I had tried.

2015, you have a lot to live up to, but I think you can handle it.
