Welcome to our exceedingly messy, beautiful life: "a big world is OUT THERE WAITING for us to live in every day. Outside, you will find, there is love all around you... It's a beautiful life & it's a beautiful world & it's a beautiful time... to be here!"

Goodbye 2008 ~ Hello 2009

Sooooooooooooo Thankful for:
God's presence & provision
Our home - more than just a roof over our heads
Our Cars - that all run right now!
Food on the table & in our pantry
Indoor plumbing (hot & cold running water)
Luxuries like climate control (Air conditioning & Heating)
Church family & home
Health (mental, emotional, physical)
Growth (mental, emotional, physical)  
Business opportunities

To remain grateful in the face of ALL that God chooses to bring my way in 2009.
To have these lyrics be true not just externally, but internally all year long, moment by moment:

"Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be,
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name"
