New Year’s Eve 2011

It’s New Year’s Eve 2011! Once again I find myself just chillin’ at home….and somehow Im ok with that! 🙂 My Dad and I had a nice NYE dinner tonight. C was working so I was Dad’s date for the night! LOL! We had shrimp, prime rib, potatoes, and green beans! It was yummy! Then C came home and we watched Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve on tv! So super exciting….LOL!

What word would you use to describe 2011? For me, it’s blessed! Blessed to meet new friends, blessed to spend time with family and friends, Blessed to serve a congregation I love, Blessed to have such great colleagues in ministry, blessed, blessed, blessed!

And as I look towards 2012, I find myself thinking about what my hopes are. I continue to hope to find my Mr. Right and start a family. Im so ready and I know it will happen when I least expect it but it’s so much easier said than done. I hope to save more money. I hope to spend more time with my family and friends. I hope that they find a cure for cancer. I hope that those that are battling cancer are able to beat it. What are your hopes for 2012?

Happy New Year my dear friends and readers!
May your 2012 be filled with many blessings!

Entering Into A New Year

Happy 2011 Everyone! I can hardly believe a year has gone by already. Hope things are going well. I’ve been thinking a lot about where I was a year ago at this time. Hard to believe that a week from Wednesday it will be the one year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake and the death of seminarian and friend Ben Larson. (I promise to post again on that date!) It really has me appreciating those relationships in my life. I am so glad to have been blessed by so many wonderful people. Thank you my friends!

The Diaconal Ministry Formation Event is happening now in Gettysburg PA so please pray for all the participants as they embark on this two week journey. I was so blessed by my experience there but also was incredibly blessed by being a small group leader there last January as well. (I’ll say more on this later too!)

Thinking about Haiti, the DMFE, Basin and Towel, Tissue, and String Cheese……(Some of you are probably wondering what the heck I am talking about and others of you totally will appreciate this statement!)

P.S. I’m inspired by a friend (You know who you are!)so I am going to try and post every day too. It probably will be difficult but its worth a shot
