Wow! What a year 2009 has been for us!
We thank God for both the blessings as well as the struggles He's given us this past year....it will always be a special year for us, such a drastic turnaround from the trials that 2008 brought us. We only have God to thank for His divine revolution. 'He made something beautiful out of all our suffering'. We look forward to the new year and discovering what He has in store for us in 2010!

Happy New Year Everyone!
I pray you will all be blessed abundantly in the coming year!

Happy New Year to you and your family. I've only been reading your blog for a couple of months now, so I wasn't aware of how old you and Robb are. I was a bit taken aback at how young you are. Your writing is so mature and eloquent, and your faith is so awe inspiring that I assumed you were closer to 30. It is amazing to see the works that God has performed in your life, and to see how He is using your blog to touch people's lives. I look forward to continuing to see the amazing things He has in store for you in 2010!
