I have no pictures for New Year's Eve, because it was the lamest ever. Brett was out of town, so I stayed home with my kids...and we just hung out. Nothing that special, but the perfect representation to end 2016. This was my least favorite year of my entire life. It was terrible in many ways. It was awesome in some ways.
I am not sad to see it go. And I am VERY excited for 2017. There will be lots of change happening in our lives...I don't know exactly what, but I do know God is about to completely shake us up.
My word for 2017 is SHINE.
God has shown me that it is going to be the year that, in the words of Jake Hamilton's song Anthem...
"He's calling, wake up child, it's your turn to shine, you were born for such a time as this!"
I don't know exactly what that means, but I am super excited to find out.
The good part of a crappy year is that it can only get better. And I am thankful for that.
Stay tuned to see God's goodness in 2017...
