for me, the new year is a great time for me to reflect on grace [well there is never really a bad time to reflect on it].

yes, 2010 was wonderful. i grew and laughed and learned and played. but with anything, i made a lot of mistakes. i hurt people, was lazy, and ignored God at times. it sucks, but i am human and that is just the way it is. sometimes it is too easy for me to focus on what i have done wrong, rather than what God has allowed me to accomplish and all the blessings i have been given.

the Lord has made me new and every day i am thankful for the grace Jesus has shown me through his unchanging love for me, and through the people He has put in my life.

i also believe the Lord is teaching me to give myself grace. we are human. we fail. and i am definitely not an exception. but every day the Lord of the universe forgives me and keeps loving me with a love i can never fully understand. so i should be able to forgive myself for the mistakes i've made, learn from them, and move on.

here's to grace. and Jesus. and love. and new beginnings. but mostly Jesus.
