Today it the last day of 2010...

I have so many thoughts swirling...

Do you? Do you look back and reflect on the past year? Do you have regrets? Only joys? Probably a little of both...or perhaps you can look back on the year as I am and see only unbelieveable blessings.

There are things I wish I could change...things I would like to have done differently, however there are so so so many things that I see His hand in.

Not many days pass that I don't look to God and ask Him what I did to deserve such a life?

This coming year holds so much promise, so much joy and life... so much potential. Another mission trip, more children for us and several amazing friends, continued mission work, working with Project HOPEFUL.... so many opportunities...

What are you looking forward to this year?

Precious, this message made me smile and cry. Very tender and beautiful...what a year it was in 2010 and what an even greater year it will be now in 2011. Keep close to the LORD for He has so much to do in and through your family...so many blessings He has for you. I'm excited to be a blog friend who can read along and pray along with you!

Happy New Year and love you!

Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
