2012 was a year of growth and change for the Draper’s (does that just go without saying – for all of us?!)
Some of my favorite things about this year…
Elliot Jay Merkle’s birth (making us Aunt and Uncle for the 9th time!)
Mylin Hadassah turning two
Joel and I getting baptized!
Becoming marriage mentors for engaged couples at our church
Joel completing a 2 year discipleship class at church
Traveling to Alabama to visit family
Befriending Virginia, our 93 year old neighbor (look forward to a post about her soon!)
Spending every day of December concentrating on Jesus and His Nativity
We are beyond blessed with more than we will ever deserve
I do not know what God has provided so much for us, but I hope we can use it to strengthen our marriage, raise our children well in His image, and serve orphans and widows in our community and world!
