A tribute to 2008...

Song: I would have to say meaningful would be Shadowfeet by Brooke Frasier. Its amazing because I absolutely loved this song at the beginning of last year and it truly helped me so much while getting through the beginning of Matt's diagnosis. What amazing lyrics: "Fast approaching is the day When the world is falling out from under me, I'll be found in you, still standing--- when the sky falls up and mountains fall on their knees, when time and space are through, I'll be found in you... you make all things new..."

fun: would be either Forever by Chris Brown, Viva la Vida, Disturbia, or 4 Minutes-- those will always remind me of 2008.

Movie: 27 Dresses or High School Musical 3. {You might think I am kidding, but I am not!!}

Places traveled: San Antonio, TX, Pensacola, FL, Atlanta, GA, Destin/Navarre Beach, FL, Jackson, MS, Mazatlan, Mexico, Birmingham, AL, & Clayton, GA.

Book: Mrs. Perfect, Jesus Calling.

Comfort food: Jim's Nachos or Goldfish.

T.V. show: Desperate Housewives (duh) & Private Practice.

Bible Passage:

1) Rejoice in the Lord always; I will say it again, Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God that transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7


"Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or terrified, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you."

3) For I know the plans I have for you.. plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE. Jer. 29:11

Article of Clothing: leggings with cute dresses or jeans (for some reason since I couldn't wear them in High school-- which I realize was a long time ago, I still love to wear them!!), my most popular clothing would have to be my scrubs from work because I wear those all during the week!

Restaurant: Panera, J.Alexanders, or Jim's Nachos (really any mexican!)

Needless to say, 2008 was a very hard year, but I know that the Lord is constantly at work in all of our lives.. and each day He is molding us into the person that HE created us to be-- May we all rest in that & hope that each day (and year) we are growing....
