Of course, those are just the main highlights that don’t require a story or explanation. So far, year 25 is the best yet, and I can’t wait to see what else is in store. I know we should be thankful for everything, but there’s a long list of things that I struggled with, fought with, cried about, and was depressed about. I see grace a little clearer this year, and I feel the Lord instilling in me the importance of patience.
BTW- Making lists is really, really hard for me. This took way longer than it should have.
