Every blog or Facebook post I seem to read this time of year is full of Happy New Year wishes and introspectives thoughts about 2012 and resolutions of 2013.
I don’t have a lot of introspective thoughts to share here. I have a couple of small resolutions but if I don’t live up to them, it doesn’t really matter.
I’m excited about 2013. I’m excited about the things I know are going to happen. I’m excited about the things I hope will happen. I’m excited about the things that will happen that I have no idea about. Already, this is shaping up to be a great year for Peter and I. And even though not all of our plans may come to pass, I am confident that, whatever 2013 holds, God will keep showing me how great His love is for me.
If I had to make a resolution for 2013, it would be this one, from Isaac Watts:
I’ll not willingly offend,
Nor be easily offended;
What’s amiss I’ll strive to mend,
And endure what can’t be mended.”
Happy 2013 to you all!
P.S. The photos in this post were taken by camera phone at False Creek in Vancouver. But, with the help of a pretty sweet Boxing Day Sale, we have finally upgraded on the camera front. So from here on out, you can likely expect more photos than ever!
