A New years coming....

We bid farewell to 2009 and look to 2010 to be a year filled with joy.

Maybe I'll even work on firming up those arms!

Looking back, I realized I made resolutions last year that were broken before the ink was dry on the paper of my mind!  So maybe I'll just skip that part this year.

In 2009, there were birthdays and baptisms and weddings to be,
Good times and sad times, just look back and see.

We got a new president
The economy took a dive
Found out we are having a new grandbaby
Had our two grandchildren here for both their birthdays
A friend lost her son
My son found his life again.....Praise God he's sober for several months now
Two sons lost their got another one....
Mama was only in the hospital once
One of our bonus daughter's baby turned a year old
Another had a baby
Another (bonus son) had twins
Another got married
A local bank went under

My nephew from the family business, Freeman Electric Co., taking down the bank sign.....sad times.

Several church babies were born
There were baby showers and wedding showers
Bible studies
Church services
A new mission ministry,  Mercy Uganda was started
Celebrated another wedding anniversary with the world's best husband!
Got to know so many wonderful blog friends!

Oh, there were sad times, sometimes some bad times
But the JOY overcame it all!

May 2010 be a year of wonder and may God hold you firmly in His everlasting arms!

Goodbye 2009......2010 here we come!

Isn't it wonderful how it all seems to equal out? The good, then the bad, the something better, then some sad. Through it all we are blessed by His presence!

I hope 2010 is wonderful and full of much more good than bad!

Great picture, by the way! You look great!

Cathy said...

I hate leggings........they look good on you though!!!!

Katie and Beau said...

Yes, they do look good on you. But no, I will never wear leggings. I'm sorry, but have you seen my legs??? There are just some things that girls with cankles cannot pull off!
