2010! Where did 2009 go? It was here just a few minutes ago, then disappeared. Yet so much has transpired in the last year, that I don't know if I can pen it all. I still may do a photo post to recap 2009, we'll see.
We did enjoy a wonderful Christmas holiday! Our good friends from Indiana stayed the week with us and we enjoyed their company along with my sister and her husband and kiddo's. We had a total of 16 kids in the house! Almost a Duggar Family Christmas!! We did more baking this Christmas than we ever have before! I think we had more desserts than we had food! (but desserts are food, aren't they?) I am so thankful for family and good friends! God truly is good!
As I said earlier, so much has happened over the course of 2009, I really don't know where to begin. So much, that it would be so easy to sit down and question God about what He is doing or going to do in our lives. It has been a trying year in many ways, yet we can still see His hand at work and know that He has not forsaken us. Time is nothing to God, yet to us it can seem like an eternity! Many of you know we are trying to start a church, and it can wear down even the most committed of people, so please keep us in your prayers as we seek to follow God's will in our lives. So many times we think that if we aren't being blessed financially then we aren't being blessed at all, yet there are so many other ways God blesses our lives, that we tend to overlook them when we are having money troubles. But God is so good to us in spite of ourselves! "But I am poor and needy; YET the Lord thinketh upon me..." ~ Psalm 40:17 (emphasis mine) I am so glad that my life is in God's hands and that He knows and has planned every step that I take! To Him be the glory! May we strive to bring Him glory in everything we do through out this New Year! Soli Deo Gloria!
