2011 Year In Review

As I reflect upon 2011 I am reminded how quickly life can change. It can throw some curve balls at us leaving us in a place we never would have imagined otherwise. Through the many changes, even just a year can bring, we can either become complacent or we can choose to grow. We can learn from our mistakes and even the mistakes of others or we can remain stagnant. In this post I am going to write some of the things I have learned this year. Come 2012, I will expand on each one, one post at a time. 

Some Things I Have Learned or That Have Been Echoed Again in 2011
In no particular order... Nor will I necessarily post about them in this exact order

-Do what is right even when you don't feel like it 

-Stay true to God, your family, & yourself

-God is just & fair

-Priorities: ALWAYS- God first, Spouse second, Kids third... then comes ministry

-Allow yourself time to heal

-Perseverance is painfully necessary

-God is beyond good & faithful NO MATTER WHAT

-Kids spell love: T-I-M-E

-It's through times of tragedy or triumph that our true friends shine

-I really, really, really love my husband and my kids

-To Forgive is to Be Free, but it's a Struggle too
