It brings time of reflecting...

So, as I'm sure every blogger has done, it's time to post an update LONG overdue. I guess I was just in a blogger's funk, unsure what to write. When asked what's been going on in our lives I easily say, "same old, same old" when actually it isnt true. So, here goes:

We're still active in our church, New Heights, in Yucaipa. We LOVE it. We have seen such an impact in our lives and see God at work in the Church. It's amazing. We're still working with the youth, and ready to kick off 2009 FULL THROTTLE (that isnt the name of it, we are just going to go full throttle).

We're still in a rental home, which we do love and appreciate considering we're renting it at an AMAZING price. However, we've been flirting with the option of buying a home and we've been looking around town, and we currently are in the proccess of just waiting for our paperwork to be approved. I'll let ya'll know how that goes once I find out. I wont give too many details incase it doesn't happen.

We know we've been so blessed with everything we've been given this year, despite how immaturely we might have used it. We are thankful for being together. After trying so hard to get our family started, we know, that no matter what, it's all in God's timing, and so it's our job, during this "waiting period" to love and appreciate all that we have in the mean time. I am so grateful to have Jon as my best friend and husband. Without him, I am a wreckless mess. He manages to lead me in the ways of the Lord just by being himself.

I am thankful for family. This year has been a huge test as we've come to adjust ourselves as husband and wives to the rest of our families. There were quite a few rocky moments, but I am thankful for each and everyone one of them. I am thankful for their support, and sometimes even their unsupportiveness, because through it all, Jon and I became stronger and stronger as ONE.

I am thankful for friends. It has been the shoulders of friends that we cried on when we found out about the miscarriage. It was the strong accountability of friends that kept us straight or called us back to where we needed to be. Our small group at church has been our rock in our transition to Yucaipa this year. My friends from before have helped keep me 22 when I was pretending to be 30. I am grateful for them all and those we had to leave when we moved, your lack of presence in our lives has effected us so and we MISS YOU!

So, as thanksgiving rolls around that last bend, what are you thankful for?
