2018…the year is finally coming to the end. This has been one of the toughest years for me. I would say right there with 2013 with the level of toughness it’s been. But by God’s grace I have made it to the end of the year.
Final reading list for 2018:

I Will: Nine Traits of the Outwardly Focused Christian by Thom S. Rainer
This is the 14th year of keeping track of books I’ve read. Here’s the number breakdown:
Here is what I learned in 2018:
1) Show love and grace to everyone. You never know who is hurting and could use the support. Even more so when you’re hurting love others. It is helpful in healing.
2) Take it one day at a time. Literally take things one day at a time. Sometimes that’s all you can do to make it through the day.
This is a unusually short year in review. Like I said, this was a very tough year for me. I hope that 2019 will be a better year than 2018. That is my prayer for me and for you
