If you've been blogging for at least a year now, I encourage you today to go back and see what you were blogging about at this time last year.
I like to do that from time to time. I also do it on some of your blogs--just because I'm nosy like that. I looked up my friend Rachel's archives sometime last year and discovered her post about how she was pregnant with Lorelai. It was neat to go back and see what she had to say at that time in her life.
Last night I re-read another document from last year. It was the journal I kept of Little Bit's tics before we got the Tourette's diagnosis. Her tics were REALLY REALLY bad this time last year. It made me sad/happy all at the same time. Sad-remembering how bad they were and happy--knowing how well she is doing today in comparison.
But what really strikes me in looking back a year ago is God's faithfulness. Problems we were facing that have now been overcome...issues we were struggling with that have now been settled in our hearts...memories of the blessings we had received...
So I encourage you to look backwards today, in a journal, on your blog, or in pictures, and see how far the Lord has brought you this year.
For He is always faithful.
