Happy New Year!!!
We wish everyone blessings on this New Year's Eve. This has been a great year. We have so much to be thankful for. Everyone in our family is healthy. Matt and I have jobs. We have a wonderful church family. The adults in our family know Jesus as Lord and Savior. God has kept our cars going another year. (They are true Dave Ramsey cars and are pretty dern old.) We know that God has a purpose for our lives and feel His presence and guidance daily. We both have wonderful, supportive moms, who love our kids and each of us. God gave us a new house this year. Last year we lived in a house that was cold and still had utility bills of over $600. Our doggy, who was in a car wreck, made it and is very healthy. We have so many old and new friends that we love. God has given us the opportunity to sing together many times this year to new people, which we have really enjoyed. Things are good between our 16 year old and us. Our kids are getting along so much better than ever. Matt and I have been married 12 years and still love each other. :) We've had lots of good times together, from singing in weddings to trips to Six Flags. God has met every need we have had and lots more.
I could go on and on. Matt has taken everyone to the fireworks stand. We live outside the city limits now, so we can go crazy.
Take care. We really are thankful for all of you. See you in 2008!
