Can you believe we’re wrapping up 2021? I mean, come ON. We blinked, and this year flew by. I’m honestly still trying to wrap my head around it as I type this! We’re officially on vacation, though, so I’m headed right back to the couch to snuggle with my girl. If you need me, I’ll be there. Or, you know, in the kitchen, because I’ve got a whole heap of leftover goodies calling my name.
I’m excited about the things that 2022 will bring to us. I always say that I don’t have a favorite part of the holiday season, but the older I get, the more I’m thinking THIS is it. We’re past the holiday craziness, we’ve cooked all of the big meals, we’ve unwrapped the gifts and mostly picked up the pieces of wrapping paper stuck in the rug.
But we’re also on the very crest of a new year, building up to a celebration of the new and a release of the old. This is when hearts are filled with hope and expectation and plans and dreams, and it absolutely does my soul good to feel the bubbles of hope all around us.
I hope you feel it, too. Happy New Year, friends! I’m looking forward to what God has for us next year.
Onward to 2022!
