This has been an interesting year for our family and an heartbreaking year for some other families we know. We have had our faith tested with Tim not working, getting sick from CO because our furnace malfunctioned,various serious illnesses and Tim's surgery. God has been very faithful and He has brought us through.
I think of the various losses that some have gone through this year. For me the one I remember most was the loss of several members and extended family members of the Esh family on March 26th. They left such a legacy and I try not to be sad when I listen to their music for now they are singing to the Lord.
You can learn more about the Eshes here and order their music. This website was set up after the car accident that took their lives http://eshfamily.org/
A lot of good things have happened too. We got a new pastor at our church who is just awesome. He is an excellent teacher and we are so blessed to have him and his family at our church. He and his precious wife are expecting their third blessing in May. It will be fun having a new baby in our congregation again.
All my daughters are now teen or preteens at ages 10, 14 and 16. My 16 year old dd got her learner's permit and it anxious to learn to drive. It reminds me that she is growing up and getting to be more independent.
Tomorrow Lord willing I will reach a milestone in my life. I turn 50 years old! It's hard to believe but I'm rather excited. I won't be sporting a red hat or a red veiling. I will probably wear my one and only purple cape dress.
I want to wish all who read this a Happy New Year! I pray the Lord will bless you and keep you safe in the coming New Year.
