Happy New Year! As in thinking of 2007, in one word or phrase, How would you sum up the year? What is the top ten memories of the last year? And what has the Lord taught you in the past year?
For me to sum up the year: Practical learning, and rubber meets the road. Practical learning: having gone out to Wyoming and living some on my own, I had to learn how to do laundry, make my own lunches…ect (yes I was spoiled up with wonderful sisters who did all that for me) Rubber meets the road: I also have had a great opportunity this year for learning how to apply my convictions and wisdom from God’s word to real life situations.
The top ten memories of ‘07. (It was hard to limit it to only ten!)
1.The Bus wreck
2.Dad Buying a C-150 and flying it back from VA
3.Surprising my twin when I came back from Wyoming, and helping him drive his car back from Philadelphia.
4.NCHEA Kids conference
5.Kids Camp up in North Dakota
6. Wissmann Ent. Christmas trip
7. Silver Dollar City this spring
8.Leaving for Wyoming
9.Catching the Stingray in Florida
10.Spending time with Caleb in California
Over the last year the Lord has taught me a lot of things. But if I were to sum it up I would say it would have to be, simply trust the Lord for EVERYTHING, He knows what He is doing and that’s all I need to know.


So whats down the road for '08?

Only the Lord knows!

And that is all I need to know!

at the beginning of this year... i really felt like the song ya'll sing - fret not - was to be my theme song for the year...it's amazing how prophetic that would be... it was an insanely crazy year... but amazingly enough thro it all God used some of the hardest situations and decisions i have faced, God always proved faithful and grew my faith up in Him.
great post and reminder!
ps. can't say if i could narrow down my top 10 favs of the year... but we did a huge picture-recap on our fam blog! chmelarfamily.blogspot.com definately good times! :)
