Year in Review 2012

This photo says it all
It was around one year ago this week I began my blog. With the purpose of relieving stress and pressure I was feeling about my job. Since then I have had some major ups and some very frustrating downs. I have switch schools that I work at on purpose and forced to leave. I have developed into a pretty good brewer and also have tried a number of fantastic beers. I have cooked many different recipes, some were amazing, others not so much. We have seen a lot of good movies and some that we wished we had our two hours back for. The greatest high's that we have had though is reaching 5 years of marriage and the birth of my first child. Since he has entered this world I can't imagine loving someone other than my wife as much as I love him.

At times we find ourselves as humans struggling with doubt and anxiousness with how God will provide for us. It's easy to rely on ourselves but as Christians we are called to something better, relying on God. Whenever these doubts and anxieties have crept up in me I go the book of Luke Chapter 12 and reread these verses. 

22 And he said to his disciples, f“Therefore I tell you, gdo not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24 hConsider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. iOf how much more value are you than the birds! 25 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his jspan of life?3 26 If then you are not able to do as small a thing as that, why are you anxious about the rest? 27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,4 yet I tell you, keven Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, lO you of little faith! 29 And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor mbe worried. 30 For nall the nations of the world seek after these things, and nyour Father knows that you need them. 31 Instead, oseek phis5 kingdom, qand these things will be added to you.
32 r“Fear not, little sflock, for tit is your Father's good pleasure to give you uthe kingdom. 33 vSell your possessions, and wgive to the needy. xProvide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with ya treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. 34 zFor where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

It helps to remember God has always provided for our every need. These verses help me remember that and it's also good to go into the New Year looking back and seeing how God has provided for us. With that thought in mind I thought I would sum up this year with a video in review. I hope this coming year will be as good as the last.
