okay, seriously, can we just make it official? i'm never, ever, ever, EVER doing this type of post again.  UGHHHH. 
let me explain.  i probably just spent like one hour trying to format all those links and texts up there ^^^ to look right on the blog.  being a perfectionist is not fun.  like dude, seriously. that was awful. i mean, don't get me wrong, i love doing end of year catch-up posts, but i think next year (Lord willing.  *ahem*) i'm just going to do a post in which i just write out what the year was like. yeah, that sounds sooo much better.

(but like yeah i hope you liked looking through all the old posts of this year)

anyways, yeah, 2015. wow. can i begin to explain this year? i don't think i can.  it was a growing year for me.  no, not just physically.  spiritually and emotionally too. i've learned a lot more about God and what He wants me to do with my life for Him, and learning how to let go of what will drag me down if i try to hold on any longer.  i've learned that the strongest people don't always fight their battles where everyone sees them, but rather when no one sees them. and, basically just learning more about life.  it's been a beautiful year, when i look back.  i mean, okay, maybe the beginning of the year was a little rocky (fine, maybe more like crazy rocky), but even through those storms, i think that if i came out stronger, then that was worth it.  God doesn't always teach His lessons in fields of sunflowers and daffodils (okay that was a weird description); sometimes He teaches them in the trials of life.

and you know how they always say to pick a word or something to center the new year on? well, i haven't exactly decided on a word yet, but i've deemed 2016 to be a year of miracles.  there's a lot of stuff happening in my life that without a miracle, it would be totally impossible for any man to change or do.  so, honestly, i'm looking forward to what God has in store for 2016.  i think it's going to be a miraculous, amazing year.

 what about you?

(p.s. see ya next year!)

  6. Spiritual growing is the best kind of growing, I think. Because it always seems to make the other kinds of growing - emotional, physical, social - easier.
    I loved all your posts this year - among my favorites would be "s p r i n g", "From Gettysburg to Hardee's", and "Healthy-ish Iced Cappuccino". Happy 2016 - may it be a year of pleasant surprises & treasured moments. *clinks glass*
