insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy


2012 in review

 The big moments come out of no where sometimes and other times they are planned for months, even years.  2012 was filled with big moments.  Addie learned to walk and Owen learned to read.  Big moments for little people.  I moved schools and jobs.  Friends were married and babies were born.  Big moments.

 There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

 a time to be born and a time to die,
 a time to plant and a time to uproot,
 a time to kill and a time to heal,
 a time to tear down and a time to build

   a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
  a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
   a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
     a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.
 What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Thank you, Lord for the gifts of 2012.  Let us not remember the arguments, the disagreements, the troubles, but hold tight to the love and laughter we shared and the big moments you walked us through.

      I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—
this is the gift of God.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
