"Nothing lasts except the grace of God." | 2014

“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.” - Zora Neale Hurston

How many pages could I fill with experiences from the past twelve months? A book full, maybe. If I were a writer. And if you know me extremely well you will probably understand....but the life changing year that was 2014 is written largely in my heart. It's a collection of never to be forgotten, beautiful, heart wrenching, heart changing, Jesus filled, moments. He asked me to let go; and restored back a hundred fold. He asked me to throw my fears away and receive His joy. He told me to say 'yes' more. To ask questions. To open my heart. To love like He loves me. To know what grace is. To live by faith. And greatest of all; to lean on Him for absolutely, positively, everything. There's really been no greater year in my life....despite the heartbreak. Full of learning. Full of grace. Jesus truly does lead all the way.

I love this tradition; of going through my entire year worth of photos (and there are, ahem, quite a lot) and picking out the ones that make me feel something. That make me remember. For the most part, they're not my best....but they're the in between, mostly un-shared,  story telling, fullness of 2014.

With love, and wishing you a very happy 2015, Sarah K.
