Good bye 2012! You passed by far too fast but taught me some precious lessons that have deepened my trust in God. You gave me some amazing moments with my family, immediate and extended, introduced me to inspirational people and you revealed the unexpected in exciting ways. As wet a year as you were, you’ve left us blessed. We’ve had some laughs, lows, sad good byes, some challenges, some honours, victories and great moments to store in the memory vault.
Welcome 2013! We greet you with growing wisdom, only strawberry and orange creams left in the Roses tin, and the hope that you will bring us closer to the finish line of the race set before us. We will keep on the track and not get distracted.
We enter the third year of leading North Coast Church and I am reminded of 2 Kings 19:29b
“But in the third year sow and reap, plant vineyards and eat their fruit.”
2013 – a year of new planting and sowing, reaping new fruit and good eating!
