...Father, as I reflect back on 2013. I want to thank you and honor you for who you are and how you revealed yourself to us:
Your presence and how how you made yourself known at times
Your protection- seen and unseen for my family and I
Your patience with me- over and over I fall short of your marvelous glory, yet you continue to patiently love me
Your love- you continue to love me not based on my actions but based on who I am- your creation and your adopted child in Jesus Christ
Your discipline which is a result of your love, you want me to become so much more than I have
Your Word- you speak and communicate with me, especially through the Scripture...
