We are having a great get together at church tonight....I couldn't believe how many people were there. It was amazing. I am home early, though. Moms of babies and toddlers and young kids in general can't be staying out until midnight...well, not without regretting it the next day! :) The little ones are in bed, my husband is still at church and I am going to enjoy a bit of quiet time.
2009 ----- what a year. It is impossible to count the ways that God blessed, provided, comforted and cheered. God is so good. I am excited to see what God has in store for 2010. (so, how do YOU say that....'twenty-ten'? 'two thousand ten'? :))
Things have been slow here for the last week - it has been wonderful! Audrey is finally over her ear infection....one that lasted most of the month of December. I am taking her to the chiropractor next week and hopefully we can deter any more illness on her little body. She has been smiling and laughing a lot in the last few days...I have missed that. Emily seems to be growing up just before my eyes. The other day she picked up a piece of Tupperware and said, "OH MOM....this is just gorgeous!" What a goofy angel she is! Jacob is missing school - well, he misses playing basketball at school. He is seven and is getting really tall....nearly up to my shoulders. I sure love my munchkins....I am blessed.
I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am for my husband. We will celebrate 12 years of marriage this summer. We dated for almost 3 years before that. We have been 'us' for almost half my life....I am so thankful. He is stable, wise, sure of himself, loving, tender, stubborn-at-the-right-time...and the list goes on. I am blessed.
I am so thankful for my church. We are truly a family. A growing family. I took a new 'attender' out for lunch yesterday. I saw our church fresh through her eyes and I am so thankful. Sometimes when you have been in a church for a long time your eyes are naturally drawn to what needs to be fixed/changed. This dear lady was bragging about all the wonderful things about our church....it was all true....God is working in our church. You can feel it. I am thankful. I am blessed.
I pray you have a wonderful last few hours of 2009 and a blessed 2010...however you say it! :)
