Before I start posting more about 2017, I wanted to take a moment to recap 2016. The first few months of 2016, were calm and quiet months for me. I simply enjoyed newly-wed life and appreciated not planning and preparing for a wedding. John had a full year from the start due to lots of work travel. Once the spring hit, life seemed to speed up for me a bit and became even more full for John.
Each year, instead of setting formal New Year’s resolutions, I pick a scripture to make my focus and theme for the year. This year, I picked the scripture that says, “Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not,” (Doctrine and Covenants 6:36). Truth be told, I don’t feel like I did the best job emulating this scripture. During the home building process, there were many times I let fear/anxiety creep into my mind. Even though I felt I could have better emulated this direction given by the Lord, I am certain I grew in ways (perhaps unrecognizable to me right now) as I sought to better trust in God. I am grateful for a Savior who can help me when I fall short of the person I want to be.
Well, that’s a wrap! I look forward to see what 2017 has in store.
