I can't even believe how long it's been since I've blogged. So long in fact, that no one will likely notice that I HAVE blogged! Lol That's ok really because this is mainly for my kids anyway!! ;-)

2010......WOW! Where in the world did 2009 go? I mean really! I can vividly remember my parents talking about how time seemed to fly the older they were getting and I would think "Are you kidding me? I'm never gonna turn _____(fill in the blank! lol)!" Now I know just how right they were...about many things!

So today I just wanted to post about my hopes for the new year. It's starting with mixed blessings for my family. We're moving....again. Long story. But I'm really anxious to see how the Lord is gonna make this happen, because it's gonna be NOTHING short of His hand doing it! We're also starting with some big changes with Jimmy's job. Changes that are for the good, both for the position he's in and financially. Also BIG changes at our church!!! A pastor that I never thought would return is in fact coming home...Rev. Clint Pressley! AMAZING how the Lord did that work! I can't wait for this adventure!!

Changes with One Voice. One of our sweet members has decided to pull out because of her commitments at home (which I FULLY understand) but I will still miss her presence! We're also facing some exciting months ahead with several opportunities that the Lord has presented us with. Keep us humble Lord!!

So, all in all 2010 is off to a bumpy but thrilling start. I'm kinda seeing it like a roller coaster. Right now we're on the climb up the tallest hill of the ride, but I can see the crest and I can't wait til I can let go with both hands, throw my arms in the air and scream (like a girl of course) as we race down the other side in complete joy!!! All things joy!!! NO FEAR, NO WORRIES, just reckless, abandoned JOY!!!! That's my motto for 2010 and I know the enemy hears that and he's already starting to plot against me, but to him I say "You are DEFEATED by the power of Jesus and I WILL WIN because I am HIS!!!"

Today in my God Calling it talked about the anticipatory love of God and it compared that love to a Mother's love as she prepares a gift for her child for a birthday or for Christmas. Where do we, as Mom's learn that kind of joy? From our Father, of course!! Listen to these words from the book..."The Anticipatory Love of God is a thing mortals seldom realize. Dwell on this thought. Dismiss from your minds the thought of a grudging God, who had to petitioned with sighs and tears and much speaking before reluctantly He loosed the desired treasures. Man's thoughts of Me need revolutionizing." That's what I'm gonna do this year...revolutionize how I see BIG He really He's anticipating the revelation of His plans for me!!! Does that blow your mind like it does mine? God - the Creator - the Sustainer of the Universe - the Redeemer of the lost - is finding joy in revealing His plans for my life - to me!!!!! Somebody wants to say "There ain't no high like the Most High!!!" lol

So thanks for listening to my ramblings and I pray that 2010 bring revolution to how you see God as well!!!!
