Happy New Year!!
Okay, I am admittedly the worst blogger ever, but I love keeping up and reading everyone else's. I know it is time for me to add something. I can't believe 2008 is over and 2009 is here. I say this every year, but I honestly do believe that 2008 went by quicker than any other year. It really was as if I blinked and it was gone. I learned to much in 08. God brought me so far and I really learned to trust Him and rest in His peace. I find that I am reacting to things differently and have learned to submit my emotions to Him. Not that I have arrived, but I'm glad that I have finally learned that Him being in control is way better than me trying to be in control. I believe that there are great things in store in 2009 for our family, for my business, for our church and for all of you reading this blog. Mel and I made the decision to join our church in a 21 day corporate fast. We are doing the Daniel Fast, so basically - no sweets, no bread, no caffeine and no meat. This is my 3rd day and the no caffeine is kicking my tail, but I have faith that some mountains that we have been facing are going to be moved by the end of this 21 days.
On another note, we had a great Christmas. It also went by in a flash. I'm always sad to see it go - I LOVE Christmas. It really is my favorite time of the year. Technically our Christmas still isn't over - we are going to Oklahoma this weekend to do Christmas with Mel's family. The girls are very excited that it has been extended through January! :) It is so fun to watch them, especially as they get older. Abbie had very specific requests this year and Emma would pretty much say whatever Abbie suggested. To watch their faces light up on Christmas morning is priceless. Abbie asked if she could control the schedule for Christmas morning so we let her. She woke us up, then we all gathered around in the living room and she wanted us to pray to thank God for the gifts and to wish Jesus a Happy Birthday. Then she passed out the gifts. It was a lot of fun and it is awesome to see her grow in the Lord.
Mel and I both got iPhones from my parents and we are sooo addicted.
Well, I guess that is about it for now! I promise to write again soon.
