The wait is finally over and 2012 is here. I hope everyone had a Happy New Year because I know mine is already off to a great start.
First of all, I’m so thankful, blessed and fortunate that God has granted me the opportunity to see another year. There is nothing like living and I’ve decided this year I’m definitely going to have a totally new outlook on life. 2011 wasn’t what I really expected it to be and got really hard at times, but I must say I’m thankful by the grace of God I made it through.
My family and I aren’t NYE party goers, but normally we usually go to church for the foot washing service, but decided to do things different this year. We have started a new family tradition by releasing a lantern into the sky. We all signed our names and wrote a message on the lantern and let it go at the stroke of midnight. Before releasing it, we said a prayer of all the things we wanted to leave in 2011 and prayed about things we wanted to do, make happen and change in our lives. It was truly a wonderful and great experience because afterwards I really felt free and was ready to hit the ground running.
Here are the pictures of the lantern we released for the New Year:
I am so ready for 2012 because I know it is going to be a great year and all the years to come!
