December 30

Ahh...2010, the last year of the first decade of the 21st century.  364 days later, and 6556 (yes count them) 6556 photos later the year has come to an end.   We have been through a track season, a soccer season, 3 baton parades,  two 5 k races, me turning 40,  and Chris landing a job.   It has been a year of many activities but more importantly many blessings.  Has it turned out the way we intended?  Absolutely not, but it has turned out the way God intended for us, and that is the best thing.

We still own our house in Georgia, and yes, we would have liked for it to be sold and us in our own house here, but we have given it over to the best real estate agent ever, God, and we know that he has an ultimate plan for that house, either he has the perfect family for it, who just has not made their way to Georgia, maybe he plans on returning us to Georgia, maybe we still have it so it can bless the people who are living in it. We have no idea, but we know God does, and that is good enough.

 We have settled into a church home.   Now, this was hard for us, we kept comparing churches to our church in Georgia, but finally realized no two churches are exactly the same, so after a year, and lots of prayers God led us to this church, not necessarily the one we would have picked, but it is the one He picked, and that is good enough for us.   He has also led us to a wonderful loving life group as well.

Financially it has not been an easy year, however, we are a little less in debt and continue to learn we really do not need much to live and be happy.   I just hope we can instill that attitude into our children.

We are happy, healthy, and alive.   For that, we are soooo, sooo thankful.  And for the people God has blessed us with, we hope we are as much as a blessing to you . 

Looking forward to all God has planned for us in 2011.

 Love and Hugs
Enjoy the LittleThings
