    26 things before 27 // final update

    So my birthday is coming up next week . . . it has really felt like I’ve been 27 for the last year, so at least I don’t need to adjust this year! My 26th year definitely didn’t go at all like I had planned. But we all know that our plans aren’t necessarily God’s plans. Here is what I had on my list for my 26th year: get our referral – well, that sure changed, didn’t it? read 10 books – according to my Goodreads I’ve read something like 24 and I know I forgot to put some of them in there. travel somewhere new – we went to Salmon Arm,…

    words for 2012

    Each year I pick two words for the year. For 2011 my words were move & pray. I wanted prayer to be a first response instead of a last resort (I have a friend who has been such a good example in this area, I really admire her for it). I also wanted to stop just dreaming about doing things but to move and actually do them. Looking back on 2011 I think those words were perfect for the year, I’m pretty sure I prayed more this year than I have in my entire life and I finally started to take some action. While I have picked different words for…
