Happy 200EIGHT!

Hope everybody had a fun and safe NYE! We had fun with friends jamming out on Guitar Hero! SO MUCH FUN!!!

Can you believe it is 200EIGHT? It's gonna be a big year for us. This month my hubby and I are going on a mission trip to Nicaragua (the Nicaragua link will take you to a page with several videos about the location we are going to) with our church through Forward Edge International, and then in March we'll be moving and we'll spend most of the year building our new home.

Our friends, the Jensens, who's son Luke is battling AML posted this on their Caring Bridge site today. A friend had sent it to them. I enjoyed it so I thought I'd pass it on to ya'll.

May God make your new year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
