Hope for a New Year and 2012's top 12!

Happy 2013 dear friends!  One passage I would like to begin the new year meditating on is Lamentations 3:22-24 "It is of the Lords mercies that we are not consumed,because his compassions fail not.They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him."  I am so glad that our hope for the new year is not in "turning a new leaf" or "becoming a new you"  our hope is in the Lord! 

Even though I have made a short list of resolutions like starting a mom to mom group with our ladies, reading a certain amount of books, losing the baby belly, and being intentional in my relationships with the Lord, my husband, our boys, family, and friends; my hope doesn't rest in any commitment to become better, for the Lord has my best in his plan.  Yes, the fiscal cliff is looming; the President was not my pick; sin is running rampant in society; and I worry about the generation my sons will grow up in--my hope is in none of these circumstances, but is solidly placed in the Lord.  Psalm 130:7 "Let Israel hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is mercy, and in him is plenteous redemption."  Jeremiah 17:7 "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is."
Twenty twelve was a great year with many fun memories in it.  So here it is the Horton's top 12 of 2012!
