The New Year

The New Year is about new beginnings, resolutions, and such. This is our first full year as a family of 5, and we are looking forward to number 6 joining us mid-year. Today in church, the pastor spoke of the future for Green Ridge, and plans for the years ahead. One of those plans is to have a Children's wing dedicated entirely to raisings kids up to know the Lord. We hope to have an after school program one day, and people to teach them and work with them during that time who have a fire for the Lord, and for these children to meet Him, and to accept Him as their personal Savior. We look so forward to the day when Emma will make her decision to live eternally in Heaven with us! Until that day, we will keep raising her as the Lord leads, exposing her to everything we possibly can so that when the time comes, she will make the right choice.

We are blessed with a wonderful family, wonderful friends, and a wonderful church family! We have a lot to be thankful for in 2008, for sure!!

Enjoy some pics taken since New Year's Eve...

Love these pics - you sure have a cutie pie there.

We're praying for '08 to be "our year" - thanks for your encouraging words and prayers for us. It's great being part of this LH community and knowing there are others out there supporting us in prayer!

Happy New Year :)
