2007 Recap

I love having this blog because not only is it just fun and I love reading other people's blog and making blog friends but it is a great way to journal our lives. Last year - I did a little recap of 2006 and I thought it would be fun to just feature the highlights of 2007.

These are the big things that happened this year:

Scott got baptized in March
We went to Las Vegas in late April/early May
My brother got engaged!!!
We went to Gulf Shores with Laurie and Steve
My friend Megan came to visit!
Lots and lots of Razorback games - and a new coach to top the year off! :-)
Hosting TEN sweet 10th grade girls for DNOW
Seeing David Crowder in concert
Celebrating our 4th anniversary

and the other highlights would be spending the holidays with our families and all the time we spent with our wonderful friends. Another highlight would be that this year was the very first year of my life that I had a consistent, daily quiet time and the first year that I honestly tithed like I should. And because I have been more obedient - I can see how God has blessed us so much. The verse that just sums up the year for us is this:
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the Lord Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. Malachi 3:10

God truly has poured out more blessings on us that we deserve or could imagine this year. And I only hope that next year - I will know God even better than I do this year. I hope I will spend more time reading His word and talking to him than I do watching TV or reading blogs. I hope I will serve Him in any way that I can and that people will see God's love through me.

Happy New Year - I hope 2007 has been as good for you and I hope 2008 will be even better!

Great post! Since I'm still new to this blogging business I'm going to have to start my recap blogs next year. I wasn't great at taking pictures until this blog came into my life and changed me forever! Ha...a bit dramatic!
Hope you have a great last day of 2007!
Go Hogs!!

Lots happened on 07 for each of us. It was fun looking at all that you did this year. Sounds to me like you know exactly what is truly important and I pray you will continue to grow in Him.

Yay...2007 was a good year for you! I pray that 2008 will be filled with more blessings and evidence of God's hand upon your lives.

Are you watching the HOGS? I'm really hoping they can rebound after half-time!
