2013: A Year Of Joy

Hello, bloggie friends!

I know it's been a while since I last posted, for various reasons, and all to my chagrin. I'm thrilled to be back and look forward to a fantastic year with you!

Our letter for 2012
Every year after Christmas, Hubby and I write ourselves a letter for the following Christmas. It's one of my most favorite traditions that we have. In the letter each year, Hubby predicts what the next year will be a year of, based on what God's been telling him. 2013 is supposed to be our year of joy. At first I was really excited. Joy! That means more blessings and happiness and fun stuff! Noooo, Hubby explained, Joy is happiness and contentment in whatever situation God has us in. Say what?! That's not what I was expecting. But Hubby's not been wrong yet about what the year will be. So a year of joy it is.

I'm still excited about it. I have no idea what this means will or won't happen, will or won't be said or done, or whatever, but it's full of promise and I am looking forward to it!

What are you looking forward to in 2013?

LOVE this.
CC has a great perspective, can't wait to see you guys live it out! JOY is HARD (say what!?!) but it's awesome. God is good, strong, and faithful. :)
