Well, it's 2010...seems so weird to think about all that's transpired in the last 10 years! Graduating high school, college, getting married, moving, buying a house, several fun vacations, births, deaths, extreme highs and extreme lows, but through it all God has been so good to us! Our prayer for 2010 is that we grow closer to Him and learn to trust Him more, especially through the trials. My goal or New Year's resolution is to memorize a passage of Scripture each month. This month, I have been working on 1 Peter 5:6-11. It's been such an encouragement to me, especially as we pray for my mom and healing for her body!
We've kicked off January with Dave finishing up a LOT of work on the baby's room--including, painting the walls AND ceiling, installing a brand new ceiling fan (all by himself :-)), putting the crib together, hanging a shelf and pictures, and new blinds. It's looking very cute; we both find ourselves in there all the time just enjoying it and imagining what it will be like to have a baby. Pictures to come soon.
Speaking of baby, she is moving a lot more these days! And I'm getting big! Just 11 1/2 more weeks. Exciting and scary at the same time!
We've also kicked off college group and high school youth group again. Dave has been busy planning for the spring and summer and just announced to the kids that the summer missions trip will be to ALASKA! We are praying for just the right team to come together and for the money to be raised, as this is a significantly more expensive trip than we've done in the past. There are a lot of needs up there, though and we look forward to seeing God work through the team.
Well, I guess that's it for now--I promise my next post will have pictures!
Dave and I met at Western Baptist College where we both graduated with ministry degrees. Dave is the Lead Pastor at Grace Community Church in Dallas. We welcomed our daughter Callie Sue in March of 2010 and our second daughter Maggie Grace in February 2013. We are in the midst of the exciting and sometimes terrifying but rewarding journey of parenting young children! I work a couple mornings a week for a real estate broker at Windermere Real Estate. In our free time, we enjoy relaxing at home, spending time with our families and going to the beach!
