Looking Back, Looking Forward

In a few short hours 2012 will be in books and 2013 will here.  I’m thankful for the great year the Lord has blessed me with. 

In 2012 has consisted of…..




Auburn Football (and lots of it) 10 games to be exact.





 It was definitely not Auburn’s best year, but you make the best of what you have. Coming in to Auburn my freshman year when we won the national championship was very nice. This year definitely tested my patience with Auburn. The verdict is…I still love Auburn. I didn’t come here because of their football team I came here because I love Auburn and want my diploma to be from there. I’m getting a good education there and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. 

During football season there are always visitors in town. I was excited to see some of my friends from LSU this year. We were state FFA officers together in 2008-2009.  They were Louisiana State officers and I was one from Alabama. It was great seeing them. I didn’t know I would ever see them again when we finished our duties with FFA, but football has brought us back together the past 2 years. 



Traveling with the Auburn Tigers this year was quite an experience. Each away game several of us from church were able to pack up and travel to other schools. Its always nice to visit other schools and town, this year that was about the only positives considering that Auburn lost every single game on the road. Oh well…War Eagle anyway. Traveling to other schools definitely made me appreciate Auburn. 

This year also consisted of a little mud volleyball…


A little politicking… 



A little running…


A visit to friends out West. My first “real” rodeo…..



Introduced Savanna to Auburn…She’s in love came 2 weekends in a row. (Success!)


I got to hold a baby kangaroo. By far my post popular post on Facebook all year. 


A lot of ag-vocating….


Camping! 


Finished my eight year membership in the National FFA Organization



2013 will be a new year which I am sure will be filled with new adventures, friends, memories, lessons, knowledge, etc. 2013:

  • I will move off to intern during the summer
  • Begin my last year of college
  • Harvest my first crop (wheat) and hopefully a second crop (soybeans) 

So needless to say it will be a very exciting year. I do not know what all will come my way during the upcoming year, (which being a planner sometimes stresses me out), but I am reminded on the passage Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” with him I know all things will work for good. I hope the Lord blesses you richly in 2013. I’m looking forward to spending New Year’s Eve fellowshipping with other Christians and singing praises to the Lord as we to welcome in the new year. Until next year…..
