Alright, now that the intro is out of the way I'm joining a blogging favorite for a letter. This one is to me, a letter for the new year.
Dear Laura Beth,
You came a long way in 2014, you grew in your faith and understood so much more about yourself. But you can do even better this year! Don't put up a front and stick to your guns, what you believe is important to you and don't forget you can show it in public too. However, don't forget only God can judge you; church is important but I know you are getting to know God in your own way. There is nothing wrong with interacting with the Christian community you've met online and yes, sometimes that means reading the Bible in your pjs from the comfort of your bed - something the older church generation will never understand.
Remember why you chose your 2nd SSMT verse - work on trusting people until they give you a reason not to, pray for them instead of hate and even if they don't hear your gossip, you wouldn't want it said about you, so bite your tounge.
Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies
Take care of yourself [aka] get off your butt and do some physical activity!
Pray your little heart out for friends and family fighting that nasty C word and be a kick-ass Co Chair for Relay for Life.
Make it a phenomenal year - you and the Mr. started 2015 off wonderfully so don't forget to make time for each other keep the good year going!
With All My Love.
