Two Thousand Fourteen

Happy New Year!

Back to my attempt at blogging once a week... going to try really, really hard.
I love new years. I love January. I loved that I was born in January, because my birthday was always right at the beginning of a new year. Always made me so happy.

This year we are believing God for a lot of things.
This year my word is "ABLE". I posted an instagram photo explaining this in more depth.

Ephesians 3:20-21
20 Now to him who is ABLE to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

We spent a week in Florida (just a week ago... hard to believe) and it was so beautiful and lovely coming from a cold Minnesota. I felt so encouraged during this week as we sat by the ocean... It was so good for my heart. I was reminded that God is a giver of GOOD gifts. He gave us the time, the ability to get to florida & the beautiful weather. He is ABLE to.

I'm not sure where you are at ... but I want to encourage you today. When we put our trust in God, he delights in showing us in big OR small ways that he is able to do more than we could imagine. I picture him just beaming with a smile when we suddenly realize it. I'm sure he just loves it.

Now... a few photos from our florida trip. These are my top 10 favorites (out of 450 ;)).... 

Palm trees should be everywhere

Jude's face when first seeing the ocean... he loved it.
So much

Cutest footprints in the sand.

God's beauty. First giving me the word... ABLE....

We  got to go with my fabulous in-laws Mark & Sherrill plus bro-in-law Timmy.
