happy new year!

Looking back over 2011 I am amazed at all that has taken place.

It was our first full year with Lydia. What a joy she is!
We got rid of our dog.
I ran a 10 miler.
I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Patrick graduated from SBTS with his MDiv.
We went to Cancun and had a blast.
We've had 3 nieces born this year.
Patrick's oldest brother and family moved to OR and his youngest brother got married.
My grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer and thankfully had surgery which was able to remove it.
Patrick has started his PhD at SBTS.
We celebrated 1 year of life with Lydia and 3 years of marriage to one another.
Found out we are expecting another baby in June 2012.
One of my brothers moved to Chicago for a new job (yay for a new place to visit:) )
Patrick has started a new job (HUGE answer to much prayer)
We have now lived in our house for 2 years.

Obviously so much more than that has happened but those are some of the major events that stick out to me. Our cup overflows! The Lord has been gracious to us in so many ways we will never be able to recount them all. We are thankful for the life He has given us. We know that we haven't taken one breath that wasn't a gift from Him. He has provided Patrick with a good job. We have amazing family that lives so close and love and support us. We are members at a wonderful church where the word of God is preached faithfully. We have sweet friends that provide fellowship and accountability for us.

All these things are a gift from the Lord. He gives and He takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Looking forward to this new year of 2012.
