The end of each year always makes me sad, I have a hard time with letting go of the past 365 days. This year is like every other, I'm not quite ready for the newness, the unknown, of next year.

This year, as a whole, has been defined by the development of my faith. I have grown closer to God and grown more in His word in the past four months than in all the time before them. I am thankful for His guidance, His grace, and His love. I am also thankful of His reminder from 1 Corinthians that LOVE NEVER FAILS.
