A new year…

But truthfully, I can’t really think of how to string it all together. So instead, I thought I’d list some of the important and fun things that happened in 2008. (Forgive me, but I’ll probably forget some stuff.) Here they are:

– Cheryl and I celebrated two years of marriage!
– Cheryl’s brother Jacob got married to Channing
– My brother Josiah got married to Lauren
– We got our great puppy-dog, Penny
– Isaac and Jessica got engaged

Besides those things, it really has been quite a year. Cheryl and I have been so blessed. God has really been teaching us a lot. We have a wonderful fellowship that we meet with that has truly become our spiritual family in the Lord. Our Father in heaven continues to teach us and grow our love and understanding of Him and His Son. We are so thankful to be children of such a wonderful Father!

As this next year begins, we really look forward with a lot of anticipation to the things that the Lord will accomplish here on earth and in the heavenlies. Amidst all the transitions and changes here on earth politically, economically, socially, and even religiously, we know that our Father in heaven is faithful. We know that His master plan has been set in motion, and that His sovereignty reigns over all. We put our trust and our lives in His hands.
