I didn't plan on doing a "2013 in review" post, but tonight I decided instead to write down some of the small Lessons I learned over the past year. Each comes from deep in my heart and they are all lessons that I plan on cultivating in the months (and years) to come.
I have felt at home in the middle of the vastness of Rome, and in a small church in London. There is so much more to the idea of "home" than we often think.
I wish I could say that I have finished learning the above, but unfortunately, it takes a long time for God to drill things like these into my head. But I am learning, gradually, that it's always in His time that I'll learn. Even when I think my timing is better. I've resigned myself to the reality that, yes, the Creator of everything knows better than little Allison does.
So in 2014, I will allow Him to teach me His lessons in His time.
And that is the biggest lesson of all.
