Remembering 2010, Looking Forward to 2011

I mean really...is 2010 really over? Where has it gone? I know I'm a little behind on everyone else doing their year end finale posts where you look back on all you've been through and look forward to all that may come- but here we go for a look back on 2010.

In 2010....
-I turned 23.

-I celebrated my 1st wedding anniversary with sweet husband of mine.

-We survived unemployement and finally became blessed to have a two income household. What a relief.

-We moved pretty much over night so that John could start his new job (we each commute an hour now, and live halfway inbetween the two workplaces.

-I became a dayshift girl, no more night shifts at the hospital whoohoo! (and can I tell you I feel like a different person??? I had no idea how TIRED I was!)

-We traveled to the Memphis and Nashville, TN, the Bahamas, Florida, Bald Head Island, Oak Island, The Outerbanks, and New York City. And loved it all (I love to travel, and husband is nice enough to go along, and then he figures out that he too likes to travel).

- We partnered with our sweet friends the McCulloughs as they take the biggest leap of faith I've ever seen and move their family to China to spread the love of our Savior.

-I grew- as a child of Christ, a woman, and wife, and daughter. And hopefully, have led a life reflective of that.

-I found a new love for decorating my home, and making it well...homey. I think my life had been so busy with sports (high school), nursing school/studying (college), and then working night shift the first year of marriage...I finally found time to find something new to enjoy.

- I found a new interest in photography, and hope to persue it more this year. And luckily its something I can share with my dad, who is an incredible photographer.

-Nationally, we witnessed the miracle of the chilean miner rescue- THAT I will never forget watching.

-We wept with Haiti when the earthquake hit, and heard the stories of the survivors.

-I was reminded of my heart for missions, and that I am called to something so much larger than I can imagine.

-I held the hand of dying patients, and hopefully made their last breaths peaceful, and supported their family. I know they changed my life, and I am honored that I was a part of those last moments.

-Through everything, I realized that the Lord is so incredibly faithful and has not forgotten me. And there is such peace in that.

So theres 2010 in a nutshell, 2011 resolution? thats another post..another day :)

So be content with who you are, and don't put on airs. God's strong hand is on you; he'll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.
