A New Beginning

Tomorrow marks the beginning of something new for our little family.
For several months, Scott and I have been praying, and have been feeling that God is moving us in a new direction. Consequently, we will be leaving our church of ten years (for Scott) and twenty years (for me). This Sunday, tomorrow, will be our last service with New Life Church of Garden City.
This is a bittersweet moment in our lives. We are saddened at the thought of leaving all we know behind, and at the thought that we will no longer see our friends and family every Sunday and Thursday. We know that, although we will see them at other times for fellowship and fun, the weekly visits will end.
On the other hand, we are excited to see what God has in store for us! We feel peace about this decision we have made, and we know that God is, indeed, leading us on to a new beginning, a new adventure in our lives.

We don't know where we will go yet. We will spend the next month or two visiting several churches in Michigan, seeing friends and family that we haven't seen for a long while. We will sit on the pew, soak in the Word of God, and go to the altar, seeking His will for our lives. Where God takes us from there, we don't know, but we trust Him completely.

We pray that you, our friends and family, will hold us up in prayer as we make this change in our lives.
Thank you for all your love and support. To those of you that attend New Life Church, we pray God's blessing on you and the church, and we assure you that we will be with you in spirit, and will be in touch.

Just stopping by to wish all of you in blogger-land a very Merry Christmas.

Its been super busy here the past few months, so time for blogging has been limited.
I do pray that you have a wonderful holiday, and that you have many opportunities to love and be loved.

May Jesus be with you during this blessed season.

Orchard Time Part Two

As you can see, the girls had a lot of fun at the orchard. They love being out and about in the beautiful fall weather!

And I love taking pictures of them in the autumn. The colors are so lovely.

Orchard Time!

We went to the apple orchard today. My mom and dad joined us for a fun family time! We went to the petting zoo, took a lot of pictures, ate donuts and drank cider, and then picked out a pumpkin to take home.

Autumn is the best time of year. The weather was perfect today, and we made some fun family memories.

p.s. Isn't my momma beautiful?

Today I sit and think of how life changed just eight short years ago.

I remember the terror that I felt..and I remember wondering if my unborn child would live and survive in this cruel world.

I remember the mad scramble to the nearest television to watch footage of this horrible event.

I remember wanting to be as close to my family and my loved ones as possible.

I remember crying and wondering why so many innocent people had to die.

I remember grabbing my Bible and searching for a word of reassurance that all would right itself in the end.

I remember my husband and I making an emergency plan, a plan that would be put into place, should anything like this ever happen again.

I remember hearing that friends, people that I loved, were being sent to fight in a war that was "against terrorism".

But most of all, I remember that through all of this, America stood.

And I am proud to be an American.

I am proud that I can say I live in the greatest country that has ever been.

I am proud that my children are free Americans.

I am thankful.

I am thankful for the protection of God over this nation.

I am thankful for the protection of God over my family.

I am thankful for the peace that God has given us...I am thankful for the peace that God has promised us.

I am thankful that I live in the land of the free, where I can worship as I please, and where I have little fear of persecution for my beliefs.

And so, today, on the 8th anniversary of 9/11, I remember those who lost their lives and loved ones, I stand, proud to be an American, and I kneel, humbly thankful to my God for His continued protection and guidance of this great nation.

My Favorite Photograph

I took the girls to Clix Photography here in Canton a few weeks ago. The photos turned out so beautifully! I am never disappointed in the quality that Clix produces.

This is my all-time favorite photo of my girls. So beautiful. I'm ever thankful for the gift of my children, and I am ever humbled for the responsibility of raising them up in a moral, Christian home.

I am proud to be their Momma.
