What a year.

What a year! How much greater is our God?!
We have celebrated and grieved.
We have traveled, learned, grown and changed.
With every high and low, we have found more gratitude. 
God's faithfulness is true and constant.

Ben grew. Taller too. He started new journeys even with bumpy roads.
Finding his way through new tasks.
Work, driving, relationships and school.
He is staring down at graduation soon with fear and trembling, 
But God is greater still.
His faithfulness is true and constant.

Katie grew. Wiser too. She found new hope in the journey.
She is navigating through growing up.
New school,  new friends, highs and lows.
She has been learning that through joy and grief,God remains the same.
His faithfulness is true and constant.

Steve has grown. I have grown. Together too.
We have found renewed joy in our adventure. 
Through tears we have learned to laugh.
From pain we have found strength.
New strategy,  new hope, rights and wrongs.
But God is greater. 
His faithfulness is true and constant.

May 2016 bring more laughter than tears,
More joy than sorrow,
More peace than war.
But if not, we are grateful still.
God is greater still.
His faithfulness is true and constant.

Merry Christmas and happy new year to you!
