We Made It
It’s that time of year – when we get introspective to reflect on what went right, what went wrong; what we loved, what made us sad.
As you remember what went on around us in 2011 (in the world), you can see from the video there were many highs and lows. In the end, like the video concludes with: we made it.
Personally, the same rings true for me: this blog was launched; I got a new job; Harper was born; We had an unforseen diagnosis; Jen and I celebrated 6 years together; Hit a new low in getting a speeding ticket; Climbed a mountain; Hit a wall; Ran a half-marathon with Jen; and Got furious at a Honey Baked Ham store.
Regardless of my circumstances, I’m reminded that my identity in Christ transcends all of that. Yes, I may have ups and downs — but I’m grateful that God stays the same. His view of me (redeemed, child, new creation, etc.) will never change.
In light of that, here’s to a memorable 2011 and an even better 2012!
