Well. I probably say it every time, but it’s especially hard this time to believe the year has come to an end! 2013 has gone by so quickly, and has been filled with so many different experiences and opportunities and wonderful times and hard times. This year was actually totally different than I thought it would be…but in a good way, ultimately. I guess one of the biggest things I’ve been learning is that life doesn’t always happen like we hope and think it will, but Jesus’ plan is the best, no matter what. Even if it doesn’t feel good initially. He gives His children what they need, so everything He has them go through is for their own good! Knowing that and remembering it makes all of life so much easier, knowing that it’s all been ordained by God, and that the things that happen in my own life have been allowed by and planned for by Jesus, just for me, because He loves me.
I’m looking forward to 2014…I have no idea what it holds, or what will happen in the coming months. But I know I’ll have Jesus. And everything will be okay.
