Stepping forward into 2012

(Incidentally, I found it a strange new feeling when my son came home with his very first ‘official’ piece of art. I know it’s just a few smudges of paint and messy handprints - but to me, this masterpiece speaks so much about how far he's come in the past year. My heart was all swelled up with pride the moment I saw it. And true to the form of the classic mom, I immediately hung it up on the fridge, so I could admire it every now and then as I walked by)

This morning, our church media team played this inspirational clip…



As I contemplated the start of this new year, I was reminded of a post I wrote two years back… let’s ring in the new year and step forward to meet it valiantly in faith and hope.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
