Things I've learned from 2011

The things I've learned from 2011, could also be said to have been learned from 2010. So here goes:

God is in control

I can handle a lot more than I thought...only because God is my strength

Family and true friends are priceless

Be thankful, even in grief

Sometimes, when confronted with a mirror, I'm surprised at what/who I've become

Having faith is an action, not a lofty thought

Life is way too short to hold grudges

Life is also too short to not forgive our 'enemies'

All our best plans, pale in comparison to Gods perfect ones

Learning to let go takes more faith than holding on

What are somethings you've learned in 2011?! I'd love to know.

In His Hands,



  1. I agree with what you have learned. I have learned so many of these same things. Also:

    My kids love me and think I am everything. I hope to be a better mom in the coming year.

    My husband has my back and is in my corner. 110% of the time.

    I love life so much. I don't want to relive any part of it (unless it is my wedding day or the birth of my children) but at the same time I have no regrets.

    Stressing about things isn't the way to live.
    sure I could go on and on.

  2. I'm sure we all could go on and on! I'm so happy you have a husband who's in your corner, it makes things a lot easier in life, I think. I agree with all you've said too.

  3. "All our best plans, pale in comparison to Gods perfect ones"
    I love that! It is so true. Sometimes we pray so much for something, but God answers us with the thing he knows will be best for us, which may not be what we wanted. Great post, Peggy!

  4. The hardest thing for me to learn, was that just because God didn't answer my prayers, didn't mean He didn't answer my prayers. My plans aren't His, and I can't see the bigger picture from my finite view point. So...I just hold on, and pray!! Trusting Him always. :) Thank you Tina!
