Goodbye 2008

Carrie came for a visit! At the moment Carrie is on her way to Mexico for a year of language study before heading to Paraguay to work with New Tribes Mission.


Jesse and Sherri, Grammy and my family came to help Elijah celebrate his 2nd birthday.

Crystal and I take Elijah to the beach.

Rachel's visit

Andrew's high school Graduation.
Grandma Day came down from NY.


Learning to swim with Auntie Sherri

We move to Northern Ireland.
Elijah gets to meet his cousins at the airport


We settle into our new home.

We enjoy spending time with the family.

Back to Florida for Brittany and Patrick's wedding.

Elijah and I on Thanksgiving Day. Still in Florida!

Our family together again on Christmas Day.
There you have it. It was a full year and it was hard to pick just one picture from each month. But it was fun to look back and brows through the pictures. I'd forgotten some things.
So many challenges, changes and good times. We are truly blessed. God is so good. He has taken care of us through each turn in the road and I know and trust that He will continue to lead us and take care of us.

Who knows what this year will hold. I hope and pray that what ever comes we will grow stronger in our walk with the Lord and learn to hear His voice more clearly. That we can be a help and encouragement to others and have a small part in reaching the world for Christ.

Is there any thing I can be praying with you for?
