Reflecting On 2012

I'm continuing my annual tradition of reflecting on the past year.

1. What were the highlights or accomplishments of 2012?
  • Moving home and building our new house.
  • The birth of two more grandsons
  • Our son, Lorne and his family coming from Alberta to help with the house
  • Signing Danica's adoption papers- God's timing is perfect!

2. What were the major themes of the year?
  • One theme-our move! We took possession of the property in January, drew up the plans, sold our house,  started construction in May, moved into a camper the end of June, moved into the house mid October...and continue to finish. There wasn't time for much else!
3. What disappointments or regrets did you experience?
  • Again, disappointment in fellow Christians, particularly leadership
  • NO REGRETS!
4. What was missing from the past year?
  • As always, time to relax!
5. What did you learn from the past year?
  • That in Christ's strength, we truly can do anything we set our minds (and bodies) to!
The focus of the entire year truly was our move. Living in Manitoba means our construction season isn't very long, and living in a camper meant we had no time to spare. It was a busy year, but worth all the hard work. We're living within walking distance of two of our daughters, a twenty minute drive from another daughter and twenty minutes from our home town where both of our mothers reside....not to mention my many siblings, nieces and nephews and their families who live nearby. We're looking forward to lots of family time in the coming year!

I'm also hoping to get back to blogging a little more, and hoping to get around to visit old friends out there! Wishing you all the best in 2013!
