My Year in Review.....

I got this idea from Marian's blog and decided to write my own year in review.

I really can't separate the good memories from the bad....because the bad ones have their own significance, and really had a great impact on my life. This has been an incredible year of testing, faith, family, friendship, and love. God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is Good.

  • My pastor's son being diagnosed with leukemia.
  • Getting orders to go to Louisiana.
  • A trip to Disney World with my mother, nephews, sister, and all my girls.
  • The birth of my baby.
  • My best friend coming to visit from MN.
  • Preparing my house for sale, with a newborn strapped on me.
  • Really unbelievably horribly bad postpartum depression, and recovering.
  • Baby's First Smiles, rolling over, sitting up....
  • Watching my husband pull out of the driveway to go to Louisiana and realizing that I really wasn't all alone, and that I am so much stronger than I really thought.
  • The oldest daughter starting public school, and letting go.
  • Homeschooling my middle, and watching her blossom.
  • My oldest daughter getting baptized.
  • My middle daughter understanding salvation, and receiving Jesus as the "boss of her heart"
  • Baby first word..."Dada" and her second word, "Mama", her learning how to wave hello and bye-bye.
  • Skype calls from the husband.
  • Thanksgiving without Daddy.
  • Finally selling our house.
  • Watching the movers pack our things and telling NC goodbye.
  • Arriving in Louisiana.
  • My pastor's son passing away.
  • Christmas together.

Watching the hand of God move on my life. Through every circumstance, He was present.

Hi Jenny.
Looking back at a year is a good thing, isn't it. SO much has happened, many sad but more good things.
And you being back with the Biggest Apple himself is the best thing that could have happened to you girls!!

Have a great 2009 all of you together again ♥♥

Just ran across your blog, I left Louisiana just over three years ago, it wasn't my favorite place but I have a three old who was born there so it was a great place. Enjoy your family all being together and there is good things in LA. The PWOC is awesome there and I have some fantastic memories from fantastic Christian friends I met there.
May God Bless you and your family in 2009.

Is your email working yet? Would you like to get together this week? Maybe we could bring the girls to McDonalds for lunch one day?
