We celebrate every New Year's Eve with a big celebration, elaborate decorations and laughter, lots of it! Surrounded by people we love, family and friends, having a great time. And at midnight, we all count down together, and ring in the beginning of another year. Usually, I'm tired but happy, and filled with anticipation for the new year and all that it will bring. This year, not so much. I am a little more apprehensive about the new year than I am filled with anticipation, to be completely honest. I don't know what this year will bring. December seemed to put a bit of a damper on the end of 2012... And as I contemplated the start of this new year, I felt a little overwhelmed by all the worries, big and small, that were occupying my mind. And then tonight, I heard a sermon that can only be described as an answer to my prayers. A reminder - to trust God. Reassurance that no matter what we face in this world, nothing is too big or scary or complicated for Him. It's a few days late, but I'm ready to take on the new year! Grateful for so many blessings. Hopeful, because of miracle after miracle that God has done for me. Ok 2013, let's go! Ready for new things, whatever they may be! Happy New Year!!!
