January 1, 2007

It is the first day of a whole new year. Looking back over the past year it is remarkable to see all the things that have unraveled over the course of time. I am so glad that at the beginning of last year we were oblivious to the many changes that would take place in our lives. I think knowing and anticipating the events would have made us uptight, stressed out, and trying to find a solution to the problems. But instead God unraveled the plans in His timing. He has been faithful and has given us the strength to get through each day. And He has given us so many things to be thankful for over the past year, and things to look forward to in the New Year!!

Looking forward:
*We are both excited that the Army moved Paul to Georgia and that I will soon be down there to live with him. What better way to travel and see different parts of the country than with a job that will move you all around? Perhaps it was untimely, but we were ready for a change and are happy about the warmer weather, the not-too-far beaches, and the visitors we’ll get on their way to and from Florida. =)
*By far the most exciting thing about 2007 is counting down the days till our baby boy arrives!! We are so grateful that the stitch the doctors put in me has done its job so far and that, at 32 weeks, the doctors are no longer concerned about the chance the baby might come early. In fact they don’t think there is much of a risk of that at all, though I am still to continue taking it easy until the little dude makes his appearance.

Who knows what other adventures 2007 holds for us … I would rather not know and just take it a day at a time, knowing that our lives are in the hands of our Creator.

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out … For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be the glory forever, Amen.” – Romans 11:33&36
