I will remember the deeds of the LORD;
yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
I will ponder all your work,
and meditate on your mighty deeds.
~ Psalm 77:11-12
A year in review . . .
438 ~ A precious life, seeing Jesus before us,
so bittersweet, so precious,

that was renewed at Passion 2010

Twice this month, oldest son’s life was extended miraculously

in the auto repair shop . . . the cable just missing him

Later found out he was a ticking time bomb.
445 ~ New living room furniture, a large
sectional, after many years of second hand furniture
which has helped so much for our growing family

Great books to read while healing:

267 ~ And as I look back through this year, I am in awe of God’s goodness, mainly for a family together, for children that love and seek their own personal, individual faith with our Savior. It’s not me – nor my husband. It’s been truly His amazing grace and mercy that has kept us together through joys and sorrows, fears and triumphs, brokenness and continued healing. With renewed joy, I look forward to the new year and what God has for us.
ALWAYS . . . .
