remember this post?
well someone caught the hint and i got the calendar for christmas! it’s so rad!
raigan and i leave tomorrow morning for pasadena, california! woo-hoo! this will be my 3rd time ringing in the new year with my cousin nicole and friends from pasadena. it’s rather strange to look back on the last several years… the 1st year nicole and bethany and i roadtripped out there because nicole and jonathan were dating. it was all awkward and fun and the guys threw a killer sabrina-style party! the following year was another party, but this time nicole and jonathan were married! i went early to spend time with them and help out with party prep. it was an incredible week, as God was doing some hardcore work in my heart. and this year – wow, how things have changed. in 12 short months i feel as if my life has changed so much. so much has happened! it reminds me of an analogy a friend of mine used at the 24:7 winter retreat last year. she said, “sometimes it doesn’t seem as if growth or change is occuring at all. then you look back a couple weeks or months and you realize that God has been at work, you just couldn’t see or sense it in the moment. sort of like the rotation of the earth. it doesn’t feel like we’re spinning around, or traveling around the sun, but at the end of 30 days, we’ve turned an entire rotation!”
have you stopped to think about what was going on in your life at this time last year? how has God met you and proved His faithfulness over again in the last 12 months?
be amazed, my friends! we serve an active God!
