A Visual Recap of My 2016

Well hello there, 2017.

Wow, 2016 seemed to fly by fast, didn’t it?! A lot of fantastic things happened last year, even the little, seemingly minuscule moments. God is so faithful! I’d love to share a few of the happenings of my personal 2016 with you in the form of a picture post. Consider it like my Christmas letter to you!

Happy New Year!

Excited to see what 2017 has in store!

The unfailing love of the LORD never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, “The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!

Lamentations 3:22-24 (NASB)
