I havent posted in awhile, I have been meaning too... but well I just havent really known what to say... Im super thankful of course for all that sweet Jesus has done for me this year. I have learned alot this year, grown in Jesus a little, Of course I wish I had grown so much more in some areas... but well if Jesus wills there is always tomorrow to get a little closer, stonger, wiser.... My heart just overflows with adoration to my God, My King! I love Him so much! How could I ever repay him for all he has done and is doing in my life? (little lightbulb going off) I know I will live for him to the best of my ability the rest of my days! One reason I havent posted much is because I lost a very dear friend of mine on Christmas day. ( let me insert here.. that I have the best and most understanding husband ever!) We found out last Sunday that Michael Cavitt was killed in a car wreak on Christmas Day... I could go on and on about him... good and not so..... well.... (you know how best friends are) He was my very best friend before I met Chris... and of course he didnt stop being my best friend but he was definatly like a brother to me,... and a great man of God. My husband held me as I cried and listened with a heart of love as I reminisced a little..... God knows all and sees all and Im so glad he does. ~ So to my dear friend Michael *aka* Father Frederick.... ~ he loved calling me sister mary shannon or mother superior (lol) Save us a space in the choir right next to you!
Chris took the Youth to HYC this week and I so had to stay and work! AHHHH that is totally not cool! I missed going and being a part! I hate it! I was I think the only Youth Leaders wife that did not get to go! (and not only that ... I missed him soooooo bad!!!) ... lol usually Im the one going places while he is working... I think its because he was having fun without me... Yes, Yes I know I know it really is all about me sometimes... oh okay well most of the time then! LOL Well lets see.. I havent taken my Christmas tree down yet., It will come down tomorrow! (I so love being a grown up) Christmas was great! Despite of the divorce in the family this year, daddy came over and passed out presents... I think mom and dad wanted to make it as normal as they could. I wish my mom would come to her senses though... but well I cant make the decision for her... I just want her to come back to the Lord.
I want to say thank you to my faithful readers! You really inspire me to keep writing! I have a couple books I have worked on and some short stories that I am going to try and blog this next year... so stay tuned! :-)
I want to say I really feel like some great things are going to happen this coming year and I believe that Jesus is going to bless me and my family, our finiances, and our church family... esp our youth! I cant wait to see what He will do! Well until next year ~ Love you all bunches!!! *-----O-----* <-- thats a big hug! lol
