2008, Farewell. And Hello, 2009!

January 1, 2009

Although it will take me at least 2 months to start writing the correct year on checks, and even then, sometime in June I will still jot down 2008, I wanted to take a minute to reflect on our joys in 2008 and look ahead to 2009.

We enjoyed the first eight months of 2008 filled with anticipation for our new family of three. May each new day of 2009 be filled with the same kind of growing love we experienced then.

We ended 2008 with all the same family and friends we started it with. May we be so blessed in 2009.

And finally, 2008 will be remembered as a yucky year by the history books due to the American economy, the war, the mortgage crisis, and so on. But may we spend 2009 resting in the peace of our Heavenly Father — because he cares for the birds of the air. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:19-34)

Have a cheerful New Year!
