Here's to 24!

Well another year has come and gone and I am amazed at the grace I've been covered in for 24 years now. 23 brought me some wonderful life changes, the best one being my new title as a wife. This past year, I smiled, laughed (oh, did I laugh), cried & questioned what I am supposed to be doing in my life. God has never failed me though. He always puts me where I'm supposed to be. 

Will and I were "pillow talking" last night about my birthday last year and where I was/where we were as a couple. It's just awesome how much can change in a year. The good and the bad bring you to where you are and where you need to be. I am abundantly blessed and happy at where this past year has taken me and where I'm at in my life. I am humbled to start year 24. I know it will bring me challenges, questions & happiness & I am ready. With God leading the way and my husband by my side, I know I can accomplish anything. 

Last night I posted this picture on Instagram with this caption, "Happy are all who take refuge in God." I started a bible study for this Thanksgiving season and that verse just came out at me and slapped me in the face. Well, not really, but it felt like it. It has always been natural for me to take the lead in any situation, so I struggle with trusting God in some situations and allowing him to put me where I'm needed. 
The whole job hunt thing has been very hard for me (& Will). It's been stressful, tiring and a real blow to my ego. I've struggled with what I'm supposed to be doing. Lately though, I've felt at peace. I've been praying and listening to God. It's been so good for my heart. Along with my photography business that I'll be doing full-time, I will start teaching 7th grade religious education class at our church. It is something I never thought about doing, but when she asked if I wanted too, I felt God pushing me to do this. Telling me that is the right thing. My first class is next week and I am so thrilled. 

I would appreciate any good thoughts & prayers. Pray I can teach about the love God has for us all. For now though, I will leave you with my birthday pancake that Will made for me this morning. I love that man. He is my heart & soul. He loves me unconditionally, I am so blessed by him. 

Here's to 24! :)
