Happy New Year!
I know New Year's Day is really just an arbitrary date, but having milestones in life help keep things in perspective. 2008 was a whirlwind ride for the family with blessing after blessing for us.
We had Denita's pregnancy and then Tabitha's arrival.
We had Denita's mom and my aunt and uncle being affected by Hurricane Ike. God provided strength for them to get through the worst times. Even though my family members are living in a FEMA trailer, still fending off looters, my aunt was able to visit her mother in New Braunfels for her 90th birthday celebration at Thanksgiving and was able to take the time to make a beautiful little dress as a gift for Tabi.
God continues to provide us support and love through the little church he brought us to.
And most importantly, God brought us closer together as a family, not just between Denita, Zane, Tabitha and I; but also bringing us closer to HIM as well.
May everyone realize that even in the worst of times, there are always blessings from God there to help us through the trials.
Happy New Year to all of you!
