This will most likely be my last blog for 2009. As I think about what I have to say my mind quickly thinks of all the changes that have taken place.
In Jan- I was 7 months pregnant with our first baby. This was such a sweet time in life.
In Feb - We worked every night to prepare to open Shoppe 3130, A ladies secondhand clothing and home boutique.
In March - We opened the SHoppe on the first friday and then gave birth to our first son - Abram Enoch on March 17th.
OK - LIFE HAS FOREVER CHANGED!
We celebrated our first year wedding anniversary on March 29th.
April- My birthday. Easter was our first day taking Abram to church (outside of mommy)
October - God began to speak to us about my time being near an end at BSMC, after almost seven years.
November - I resigned from BSMC after a month of sleepless nights.
I also found out my daddy has liver, colon, and lung cancer.
December - We took over Heart of Augusta (a thrift store in downtown Augusta)
my time at BSMC was ended.
And here we find ourselves celebrating our first Christmas with a son in our arms. How amazing it is!
We are now getting ready to marry Eli, my lil brother in law off to Jessica. They are getting married in FOUR days. Wow!
Perhaps that does not sound like a lot of change to some but it has been a crazy year. It has been exciting... not train wreck exciting... joyfully exciting.
I am looking forward to 2010. I am longing for a slower pace. Time to be wife and mommy. Time to be daughter. Time to paint, plant, sew, design, decorate. Time to write, sing, laugh.... ENJOY. Time ti submit, follow, repent. I'm longing for more of Jesus and less of me. Im looking forward to serving in a new role. Im looking forward to life again.
Im remembering 2009 already as if it is already gone. Guess most of it has. It has been a year. A good year. Ive been blessed in many ways - one of which is because I call you friend!
