It has just dawned on me how many blessings I received throughout the year 2011.
Sad isn't it? That I had to ring in the new year before I could see just how blessed I was in the old year?
There were good memories and bad memories, lessons learned and laughter enjoyed...but through it all I see one recurring theme. JESUS. He was with me all the way. And sadly, through the latter half of good 'ole 2011, I couldn't feel him there. But looking back in the past several weeks, I can see his fingerprints everywhere. He was with me in the toughest of situations, in the happiest of moments and in the darkest of nights. And I know that he will continue to walk with me, and carry me when needed, right on through 2012.
And THAT my friends, is something to celebrate.
Happy New Year!
