So thankful for a risen Savior to serve on a day to day basis. It has been a crazy year thus far, and we are looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation with my family on a trip to Tennessee! The kids have been counting down the days and seem to never stop talking about all the fun activities we have saved our money for this last year. Maddie is turning one on Sunday, and mommy is having a hard time believing that a whole year has gone by already. Hard to believe all the blessings, trials, stresses, and sheer excitements that have happened to us in just 12 months. What a great God we serve. It's refreshing to just sit back and watch God do the work. Plus, when we finally sit back and let go, our failures and flesh don't mess things up. Well, I don't have much time or energy to blog today, but wanted to throw in a quick update. May you each have a blessed day!
