Moving past 2013 I remind myself that THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!  I cannot complain about the last year because although it's been extremely difficult I have grown so much in my walk with the Lord.  Somehow with the help of amazing friends, I successfully planned and threw David's best birthday party yet, advocated for my students and got them the classroom setting they deserve, and have begun  fulfilling my passion of working with the youth at my church.  I pray that in 2014 I continue to find refuge in my Lord and Savior and allow him to give me the strength to rise to any challenge we may encounter.

Maybe the lesson to be learned in all of this is that the quicker you give things to God the quicker he can fix them! Yesterday I was broken to the point of surrender and in that moment of weakness I could do nothing more than hand all of my hardships and sorrows to God, in less than 24 hours all of the issues that were burdening me have had some sort of resolve!  Thank you Jesus for loving me despite my stubborn ways!!!!   ;)

I know most of you have wondered what I've been going through lately and have not fully understood... Because the matter is not about me I have tried to be very considerate of the information I have disclosed online. I can't say much more than, my family is in the midst of a major crisis! As hectic as planning David's party was it was a great distraction from facing the realities of the things going on in my life.  Now that the party is over, reflecting on the party has been  a great reminder of all the love and support David and I have been so blessed with! Lately it has seemed as if my world has been spiraling out of control in every aspect of my life.  God knows me and generally it is hard for me to give my burdens to him until I can take it no longer! We'll I'm there & I surrender Lord!
