2012 was a year of change for the McCaleb family.  It was exciting, challenging, and and scary all at the same time.  But one things always remains consistent: God loving us and always taking care of us.

2012 brought us PARENTHOOD!  We found out our sweet Lucy was coming in 2011, and she made her appearance on April 23rd, 2012.  It was one of the best days of our lives.  As many people say, parenting is the best job in the world and the hardest job in the world.  

Lucy makes our lives sweeter each and every day.  I think the Lord gave us children so we can catch of glimpse of how much he loves us.  We are loving being parents.  Lucy is now 8 months old and is quite the socialite.  She loves life and every new thing is exciting to her.  Being parents is truly a gift from God and we thank Him for blessing us with such a sweet gift.

In 2012, the Lord also taught us about PROTECTION.  On June 12th we had a bad storm and a tree fell on our house while Lucy and I were inside.  Many attributing factors proved that God was definitely in the room protecting us.  I wrote a detailed post about it HERE.  Every time a storm comes and I get scared again, I think back to this day and how differently things could have turned out and I'm so thankful to God for his protection over our family.

In 2012, God also showed us about His provision.  He provided us a wonderful church family where we dedicated Lucy to Him in August.  It was such a sweet time and I pray that Jared and I will be the parents God called us to be.  I pray that we love Him first and foremost, love each other, and teach Lucy how to do the same.  

He continues to provide for our family and we know He will do the same in 2013.  It's fun to look back at this past year and see all the many changes in our lives and how He works everything out in His time and for His good.  

My prayer for 2013 is that we continue to look to the Lord and follow in obedience!
