Pick the best pictures from your 2012 and have those pictures tell everyone about your year.

What a year! A year of growth, challenge, learning and delighting. I am so thankful for all the blessings, both the hard and the fun.
The highlight of this year would have to be the answer to prayer. At the start of the year I wrote out a prayer that I rediscovered the other day. I prayed that as I read God’s word and explored His world I would grow in my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. With camera in hand I have explored a lot, the photo’s tell the story, but this passion and my eye have been directed by the hours spent with my Lord and Saviour. We have walked together, talked together, I have cried out to him in distress and called out to Him in praise. His grace has ministered to me every step of the way, reminding me that it’s not what my hands have done, or will do, but what He has done. With my camera as a tool I have seen and appreciated so much more of the many ways He reveals himself through His creation, and have found delight where before there was only mundane. He is not my personal motivation tool, He is my everything, my greatest treasure.
As we have stepped from 2012 to 2013 I pray that you too would know Jesus as your greatest treasure. I want to leave you with this thought from my reading this morning.
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.
(Revelation 22:20-21 ESV)
