Goodbye 2012

It has been a most interesting year!  God has been SO good to us  – again – and  I can’t thank Him enough for all the MANY blessings!

Here was what I had hoped to accomplish through this past year:  Organizing My Life in 2012

I didn’t go crazy and make a bunch of goals and, yet, I still failed at many of them.

Thankfully I can take that list I made from last year and start it again.   Why not, right? 🙂

My goals are still the same.

I feel like a failure in this department and time is getting away from us.

The kids and I have made a goal to read through the Bible this year!

I’m quite excited about starting this with them TOMORROW!!

The thought occurred to me the other day and just seemed like a wonderful idea!

I found the New Year Bible Reading Challenge through Pinterest!

Join us if you’d like!  We would welcome the encouragement!

Another goal for the children and I,  is to memorize Scripture!

It’s been a fail for me/us since just after the beginning of our school year started in August.

Been reading through the book of James a lot and plan on memorizing the rest of it.

I have chapter 1 down pretty good and most of chapter 2, but I need to get busy!

God has much to teach me through His Word, but it does help to spend time in the Word!

 One goal I have accomplished is taking a photo per day this year!

Sometimes it was hard, but it was such a great experience!

My goal is to do the same starting tomorrow and improve more in my photography.

One of my highlights this year was meeting Tracy and Kristal!

 Such a blessing to meet internet friends in REAL life!

Not sure if anyone follows this blog much, as I haven’t been writing much these days.

That’s pretty sad.   😦

I was thinking about dusting off my pen and start writing in a journal again.

Some of my crazy thoughts I don’t always want to share on my blog,

but writing does help me sort my thoughts out and think things through better.

So while I may not be on here blogging as much, I will do some updates here and

will definitely be keeping up with my Em’s Photography Adventure blog.

We’ve been enjoying school a lot this year.

I’m so thankful for Paths of Exploration!

The kids are thankful too! 🙂

Now I must close with this last post of 2012 on Strobel’s Happenings.

Have a blessed New Year!

  1. I am so grateful that you left a comment on my blog and found me on facebook. I am still looking over my goals some will take a few years to achieve. But need refining.
    Meeting internet friends is awesome. Glad you found the Bible Study challenge, I am going to check it out. I love reading my scriptures, they bring such peace into my heart and home.
    Happy New Year!!!
