2017 New Years Eve Reflections – Psalm 3:5-6

Somehow, here we are at December 31st.
So it’s time for 2017 New Years Eve Reflections.
In a nutshell, 2017 was productive.
I’ve had time to [create] priceless memories living in London,
[cultivate] my passions through writing & photography on my blog,
[treasure] a deeper love & respect with/for my husband,
[travel] to nine countries,
[cherish] family & friends on this side of the world and the other,
and best of all, [nurture] a stronger relationship with Jesus.

The biggest lessons He’s taught me are that He never leaves me or forgets about me,
and His plan is better than my own…always.
He knows me better than I do, providing for me even better than I can imagine.
Living with open hands takes the pressure off.
Knowing I’m in the best hands, gives me abundant hope for what’s to come.

It was a tough year in some significant ways
(car accident, adjusting back from London life, political unrest, and numerous other trials)
but overall, I’m thankful for 2017.
At the end of this year, I’m stronger.
I know better what I want to do with my time, how I rest best, who I want to surround me,
how I can improve, and why I’m living this life.
Looking forward to what 2018 brings.
May it be a blessed year!
Have you written out your New Years Eve reflections?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6
