i reflected on 2011 here. only 10 months in to 2011. and i was right, the last two months matched the rest of the year.
we sat around a table with coffee and dessert the night that matthew turned 31 and talked about highlights from the year. all i know is God is working working working to make Himself famous in our hearts. sometimes it really stinks and is really hard. other times we bask in joyous circumstances. He's using all sorts of avenues but when it comes down to it, He just wants us to obey Him. to know Him and to obey Him.
i can't wait to see what's in store for 2012.
