2012 In Review

In January, I unintentionally picked a yes word for 2012. Was 2012 a yes year? I’m not sure. Enough people said “yes” to partnership that we are nearly 50% supported. I am still learning the art of being a yes mom who also maintains a clean and organized home but doesn’t idolize it. February was full of love and sweet photos of Susanna. In March, I stepped onto my soapbox about an important issue, sponsored a little lady from Peru (who then moved, but was replaced by World Vision with Yasmina from a nearby village), and began to reevaluate how we do youth ministry. April brought more ministry posts, including one about church planting and another about salty living.

May brought a precious moment in discipleship, visions of 100%. In June, I went to my 10 year reunion, blogged from our mission agency and celebrated the best gift ever. Summer posts included some lists, a post about rejection, a recap of how God is working in (“Godless”) Portland, what God is doing in us while we wait.

Summer in September; pumpkin patch; Thanksgiving smiles; cute in the cold

September was our summer in Seattle, but I still found time to just write. After posting two silly things in October, I tried my hand at a series on praying for missionaries during NaBloPoMo. Finally, in December, I recapped the year, took a few photos, and began to think about my word and plans for 2013.

We celebrated Christmas simply this year, with nearby family. Susanna looked darling in her Christmas dress.
