I’m writing this a little ahead of time, so this is past Katy congratulating you for making it into 2021!
I looked back at my first post from last year, just to see how far off I was going into the year that was 2020. And I wrote these words after announcing my song for the year, “Be Thou My Vision.”
“I’m sure there will be some predictable moments, and some unpredictable challenges as well. All I know is that I want to keep my eyes on God and allow him to guide me through it. I pray that by the end of the year, I will have a renewed focus and love for God that is greater than today.”

Nobody could have predicted the challenges that last year brought. Those “moments” turned into months. And challenges I would never have thought could be challenging like sitting inside a restaurant or a movie theater. Going over to a friend’s house to celebrate milestone birthdays. Normal holiday seasons full of well known and loved traditions to share with my kid.
But the one thing that was always true was that God was there. He walks through it all with me. Every time “Be Thou My Vision” popped up on the shuffle, I was reminded amidst all the chaos, there was the steady hand of the Father, ready to show the next step in the adventure he has prepared for us.
This year, I feel like I’m recovering from last year. And my song this year reflects that. This year, I want an old song that has brought me so much comfort over the years of pregnancy loss, uncertainty, unknown. So, this year I chose “It Is Well With My Soul” to lead me through 2021.
This week, I’ve shared a few of my goals, mainly for this blog. Overall, I want be more still, remember that God is in control no matter what this year brings, and focus on the things in my life that are important to me. And take each day as it comes, each month as it is, and meet each challenge with the knowledge that no matter what may come to pass, I can say it is well with my soul.
