It's a lot to be grateful for. A whole lot to be grateful for.
But for us it's been a beautifully unremarkable year. A year when we've hunkered down and enjoyed the blessing of time together as a family.
We're not into New Year's resolutions around here. But this morning I was reading in Philippians and found a fantastic theme verse for 2016:
Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God.
Cheers to new beginnings, steadfast love, and new mercies every morning.
