Goodbye 2016

Saturday, December 31, 2016

Thank God for another year! Our pastor declared this would be a year of Victory and this is exactly what God has given us. It wasn't going to be a year without difficulties he said, but through it all, we are more than victorious through our God! 
I swam a lot this summer. I'm going to do that again. I found it to be a great way to get in my own head in a different way.
 My sweet family continues to be my priority and the reason why I do everything I do with passion. It's a blessing to be loved by them.
Zeke and I put in the work and we went on some fun dates. We plan on keeping that streak going as we make time for the two of us next year.
 God and Zeke made it possible for me to fly to California and run a half marathon there. I had a great time with friends and I came back with a personal record. What a blessing!
Last but not least, I'm thankful I have this amazing man in my life. We've been together for 13 years and we have a wedding anniversary right around the corner. I got to know him better this year and I can say I love him so much more than when we first met. He's a great husband and father and I find myself incredibly satisfied with the love we have. We're blessed and we're thankful to God for making us one. I pray that next year I will be even more instrumental in being everything he needs and wants.

I don't have photos of my low moments but let me tell you: there were many. Through it all, God was with me and I have the victory. When I was low, I was reminded of Who my Father is and how much love He has for me. I found those truths to be empowering enough to help me get up and face another day with hope for the future.

We move on towards 2017 filled with faith in God assurance of His presence, power and love. Goodbye 2016 and thank God for new beginnings!
