The New Year

Hello all!

It's hard to believe that it's already the 7th of January... We are 7 days into the new year! Seems like just a while ago... we were talking about how 2008 being here seemed impossible! Isn't God good though? 2008 was probably one of the roughest years for Phil and I... but it ended up being one of best years of my entire life!

It always amazes me to stop and think of where God has brought me from, and where He has me now... Sometimes I'm so ashamed of where God had to bring me from... how He had to change me to make me what I should be for Him. My attitude towards serving Him has changed dramatically. I know that I'm only 25, but I believe that God gives us more wisdom as we age... We tend to see the more important things in life, rather than the very flippant ones that couldn't be larger than a piece of dust compared to eternity...

I haven't really set a "resolution" this year... they tend to get broken very fast. I know that my walk with God needs to be closer. I want to be the kind of example to my children, that they look at me, and think... "Wow, I want to know God like she does." I want to strive to be the best wife I can be... sometimes I'm unbearable... I work all day, then come home to dishes and cleaning and the devil gets the best of my attitude. I'd like to work on that... I'd like to strive to show God to others more... He means the world to me, do others know that? I have the best husband in the world. Literally. He's so compassionate, and loves the Lord. He takes care of me, and understands me more than any other person. God does that. God makes us one, and I am so thankful for that. He's the most understanding person I know... He lets me speak my mind, because he wants to know what's on my mind. He loves me for who I am... I'd like to show him more that he means the world to me.

I could go on and on... but I must needs to stop typing. So much will happen this year... and I can't wait to drink it all in... God will provide for us, and He will be there with us each step of the way...

Oh by the way... I'm four months pregnant! We find out in a month if it's a boy or a girl! We are so anxious! God is good!

When you get the picture of your Baby's Sonogram you need to post it under your guys' picture with your Dog and Cat!

I know that you will make a wonderful Mommy and Phil an awesome Daddy.

Keep us posted!
