Twenty-Thirteen: the year of our Lord!

Twenty-Twelve. All in all, t'was a beautiful year. A full year of learning, joy, hard work, sorrows & adventures; all creating beautiful memories, that I shall hold on to through the coming years. I'm so thankful for the grace of God in my life. I'm thankful for family. For life. For friends. Chocolate. Snow. Cats. Books. F'real smoothies. For everything God has created & so abundantly blessed us with! God is so good, merciful & gracious. It's overwhelming. I'm continually struck by awe, with each coming day, by His love & grace for us; for me & my sinful wretchedness. I'm so excited to see what He has in store for us this new year, while working all things for His glory!
Resolve to keep the wonder.

A wondrous year has come and gone. 
Singing 'round a bonfire,
Well spent with our fellow man,
God has given us a faith that will prevail,
In the Infinite over-all plan;
He has given us a future bright— 
A faith in Eternal justice,
A faith in the love of God.

A beautiful year has come and gone.
Adventures well made,
Lord keep us all from strife;
Grant strength for the winding miles ahead,
Prepare us for the journeys of life,
Give us a faith to sustain, but above all, Lord, 
Give us a faith that shines— 
A faith in the love of God. 

A blessed year has come and gone. 
All things provided, 
Happiness and sadness in turn as we go;
We never know what's around the bend,
The Master Planner planned it so— 
Lord keep us safe till our day's end, 
Give us lasting faith in the love of God, 
Our King Eternal, 
Have a blessed 2013!
