Welcome 2009

It's been awhile since I've updated the blog. As many of you well know, my father passed away the week before Christmas. It was a really tough holiday but we are finding comfort in the fact that he is resting in the arms of Jesus and is no longer fighting a battle with cancer. To everyone who called, visited, sent cards, or simply said prayers, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. As a newly married couple, this was not in our plans for the Christmas season. However, we know that God's timing and plans far exceed anything we can comprehend. James and I are thankful for our family and our friends and, above all, for one another. So it is our resolution for 2009 to count our many blessings each and every day and to remain mindful of the gifts of life, love, family, and friends.
