Things I know 365 days later

1.  I know that I love the Lord despite how people behave towards me.

3.  I know that the job my husband has now is nothing short of the mighty power of God restoring him.

12.  I know that our family is resilient.  I know that we love each other, serve each other and are for each other.

13.  I know that the delete button and unfriend button can be quite therapeutic.

14.  I know that what we experienced is not the church that Jesus died for.

15.  I know that I can't wait to see the Lord has for the upcoming years.  He is everything to me.
