Abide Culture Coffee Roasters: A Family's Year in Review [2023]

January 1, 2023 — December 31, 2023: The Dash [Part 3]

As last year closed with minutes ticking down the time, printed paper sparks remembrance of another year's journey. Personal progress. Faith strengthened. Theology taught. Doxology stained with tears. 2023 was a year of growth. Reflection. Stretching. Broken hearts mended. Heavy hearts lifted. Joy in family expanding. Life literally lived in the B-roll. Candids become portraits. Truth in snapshots. Editing digital papercuts. Analog existence. Scrawled penmanship accompanies.

"What will those of you do who have no anchor? A storm is coming on!
I see the lowering clouds and hear the distant hurricane! What will you do?
May the Lord help you at once to flee for refuge to the hope set before you."
— Charles Spurgeon

A year of testimony. A year of beauty. Beauty in the chaos. Beauty in the silence. Beauty in the riot. Beauty in the noise. Beauty is all around. Finding beauty in a year of growth and trials; peaks and valleys. One constant; our unfailing anchor: Jesus.

♪♫♩ and I am tossed about the waves of stormy skies
and I see You standing there upon the tides
and I am looking for You to heal my mind
and I have been carried across the waves this whole time ♩♫♪

“We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul,
a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,
where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf,
having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”

Hebrews 6:19-20

Abide in Christ.
