A New Year...A New Start

Monday, January 6, 2014

A brand, new year! I have never been more excited to start off a new season in my life!  I am eagerly watching and counting God's gifts and what He may bring in 2014.  2013 was filled with sorrow, but also with healing.  I am so thankful for a God that is in the business of doctoring our hearts and making us whole again.  My Word of the Year for 2014 is "Count"...so here I go again...counting His gifts.
