I'm Grateful

Many hellos and too many goodbyes
pain. mistakes. joy. overcoming.
Reminiscent of the year 2009

Family and friends.  The Discipleship program.  Living with the Grandparentals. A truckload of Propel. Street and door to door evangelism. Saying a temporary good bye to Uncle Chuck.  Carenet pregnancy centers. Meeting new people.  The Coast. [my f.a.v.o.r.i.t.e. place on earth]  Eating fresh crab for the first time.  [it was h.o.r.r.i.b.l.e.] Bought another Honda.  Laura comes to visit.  Mission conferences.  Meaningful time with missionaries. Thousands of photos.  6 months away from home.  Driving with my bro, 1500 miles cross country- going home.  Camp nurse for Good News Camp.  Fourth trip to Mexico in 3 years. Home again. Back to Oregon for Family vaca.  Home again.  Trips to the city with Alana. Home again. Caregiver for the elderly.  Colorado for Thanksgiving. Home again.

my favorites are you with the statue, and the kids at camp.

Love. this. video! What a sweet, reminiscent look at your year.

I loved ALL of the them, but my favorite picture was the black and white of all the friends sitting in a line. How lovely!

Such a good way to remember God's goodness throughout the year! I loved it. :)
And, YES, the Oregon coast is the best! ;) 'course I'm mighty biased, but I had MANY awesome memories from there. Haven't had crab though. ;P
I'm sooo glad that I got to meet you while you and I were both in Oregon away from home. :) It has been a joy to correspond and get to know you. Hope that trip to go up and see you/you come and see me happens sometime in 2010!!
Sorry, that was rambily. :)

Mark, hah, you probably actually know a little more story to that camp picture than just any passerby :)

Abbie, I'm glad you liked it! seriously. I spent (too) much time on it, but loved every minute of the memories.

Melinda, even though its not captured by pictures (why didn't we think of that???) you were a very cheery part of my 2009 and hopefully the years to come!

Christin, I MISS YOU TOO. I sincerely hope to make it over your way soon.

When I am faithless, He is faithful.
When mine fail, His plans prevail.
When I fail, His mercy endures.
Without Him, I am nothing.
