Attractions in 2011

These are the posts that got the most views in 2011.


2011 will go down in history as our most difficult year yet, and I have never been happier to see a year go.  Never have we been stretched so much, never have we spent more time in the refiners fire being molded, chiseled and changed. It seems no part was left untouched by trials and fire, and never have so many tears been shed, but God is so so faithful and for that I give Him praise! ♥  Bring on 2012 & a bountiful harvest of His blessings! I am thankful I serve a mighty God who can make Beauty from Ashes.

Here’s to 2012, a year of renewed hope, a bountiful harvest of blessing,


God has been so faithful in taking the broken shards of my life and turning them into a mosaic of His grace.
