twenty-twelve in photos

wow. what a year. this time last year, I had *no clue* what 2012 had in store me. and it's kinda exciting to know that I have no idea what 2013 will be like - and honestly, life has just been getting better and better as each day passes, so Lord willing, 2013 will be an exciting year.

Matthew 6:25-34 (NIV)
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? o do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

¡Adios, 2012! Nice knowin' ya. 
¡Hola, 2013! Here's to twelve new, unused months to fill!


  1. A lovely collection of photos, m'dear. You've had such a wonderful, exciting year — isn't it amazing how God works in our lives when we give Him full control? There's but one complaint I could raise, and that is the absence of the picture we all took together in May . . . but then again, you would have had to blur our faces. :/

    Here's to a blessed New Year!

    Love ya,
    Elizabeth Rose

  2. And the first day of last year you and I were reunited. Hallelujah! That was just the beginning of amazingness for me. I'm so glad you had such an exciting year, and I hope this year is even better. God bless you, and hope to see you very soon.
