Looking Ahead to 2023


Whatever this past year has held -- whether joys or sorrows, steadiness or unpredictability, fulfillment or disappointment -- we can walk into 2023 trusting God walks with us. He's faithful. He's good. His ways are wise and loving. I'm so grateful.

See this picture? This photo was taken this morning. My small-town central Pennsylvania self has made it to the West Coast, and that windblown hair is compliments of a misty Pacific Ocean breeze.

Here's to a new year. Here's to unexpected moments, fresh experiences, and hope. Here's to a God who's powerful enough to create this beautiful vista and intimate enough to know every windblown hair on my head.

I've had a lot of questions for God this past year, many along the lines of "what the heck?" It's been that kind of year, honestly. And yet, as we stand on the threshold of a new year, I sense that if God's mercies are new morning by morning, how extra sweet those mercies will appear as I reflect back over my life, year by year. Even those "God, what the heck?" years.

Happy New Year, my friends!
