Happy New Year everyone!! (I know, I’m late :/ The beginning of the year always feels strange to me, like you hit the ground running and you’re immediately behind! There are a few things I want to do in 2013, not really resolutions, more like things I’d like to learn 🙂 I want learn how to play the guitar better (and by better I mean A LOT better!). And I’d really love to learn how to make amazing videos, even if it’s just home videos – shooting, editing, creating 🙂
Of course there’s a whole list of things I just need to be better at like being organized and keeping my house clean. There is a sense right now though, in our home, that the Lord is doing something new, something really exciting 🙂 I can’t say I know exactly what it is, but it seems like we’re standing at the start of something big! Maybe we’ll look back a few months or even years from now and say, “That’s when it all started.”
The Lord has been getting us ready for a while, for whatever this is, this new adventure. In the last month or so, I’ve realized this new peace in just trusting the Lord, realizing that there’s really nothing within my control and that that is actually a good thing!
I think for so long I just held on tight to the belief that the Lord had good stored up for us, and now, even though our situation from the outside might still seem difficult, I realize that it’s really true! We’re in a place where we’ve needed the Lord to come through and He truly has! I’m excited to see what He has in store! What a blessing to rest in Jesus 🙂
“He who did not spare His own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”
Haven’t used the big camera much since all the weddings, but here are a few phone pics from the week – enjoy!
I made my first pot roast, turned out pretty good actually 🙂
Game night at the Treu house – this is my Battleship partner 🙂
We visited Hammond’s Candy Factory and took the tour
We got to spend a delightful evening with my awesome cousin and his amazing wife 🙂 Seriously, such a sweet time! This is Katie and I taking pictures of each other – I caught her flash!
We started back with school this week. After a month long break, it is going surprisingly well!
Robots go EVERYWHERE with us!
School journal time – the boys make an entry almost every school day, so fun!
The big boy doing flashcards – I’m so proud of him, such a good little reader!
We did a real puzzle with Ethan today and he loved it! He did it four times in a row!
