The year 2011 was the year of forgiveness and of trusting God. This year...
I learned to see people as God sees them and to love them just as they are, faults and all. I discovered I am braver and tougher than I thought I was. I realized that if I want my children to be more obedient, I need to be obedient...and disciplined...and self-controlled. I felt inspired. I found my voice and found courage to share it. I felt the miracle of another human life growing inside me and experienced God's grace and mercy in delivering him into the world. I prayed. I cried out to God. I loved. I laughed. I wept. I worshiped. I let God be God. I danced. I sang. I rejoiced. I trusted God with my life. I trusted Him with my heart. I fell and God carried me. I embraced My Lord's Mother as my own and fell in love with Jesus all over again. I witnessed my earthly mother fall in love with Jesus all over again. I hugged my children, a lot.
I was forgiven.
I was loved.
I have plans for this new year, but for now, here is a photo collage of this last day in 2011:
