It seems like a very appropriate way to end out the year, as I've eaten a ton of Pei Wei this year, watched entirely too many episodes of Real Housewives, and the couch and laptop are apart of my daily regimen.
I say this every year, but I honestly can't believe how fast this year has flown. They say the years get faster the older you get and I truly believe that.
I just read my review of 2009 (which feels like I just wrote last week) and in that review I talked about how 2009 was the year of no changes.
Was I trying to set myself up for a year of changes in 2010?!?!? Cause that's what I did.
In fact this is a direct quote from my blog this time last year:
"This year we had no big purchases, no big revelations, no big job changes, or location changes, or babies, or pets."
With the exception of the "pets" part all of the above happened.
We purchased a home in March, and this was a big purchase. It got soooo tiring looking for a house but I'm thankful that my husband knew what to look for and does such a good job of keeping us on track in that area. If it was up to me we would have purchased a home that would not have been a good investment. I'm glad Luke handles the money aspect of marriage.
In September we almost had a location change. Luke had been offered a job at a church in Texas and for about 12 hours we accepted the job. However for those 12 hours we never once experienced peace about our decision. Previously before we made the decision, we spent a great deal of time asking for guidance and seeking God's direction in this decision. We never felt a leading one way or the other and it seemed like everything was lining up for us to move.
Well it wasn't, and God made that perfectly clear. Once Luke called back to say that he had to back out from the job that he had just accepted, we felt a peace that can only come from the Big Guy Above. Several other factors happened after that, that reaffirmed our decision. It would not have been the place for us and God was definitely protecting us.
Aside from almost moving Luke had a couple of internal job changes this year. All of which are too hard to explain, but we know the details and they definitely affected our year, and in some ways still continue to affect things.
And then of course we had the GIANT, LIFE CHANGING news of our little baby Tree that will be making his appearance this next year. While this caught us off guard, we are more than excited and fall in love with him a little more each day. Every day we talk about how excited we are for him to be here. We know that it will definitely rock our simple, quiet little world but we cannot wait. I'm ready to meet that hairy little guy, and I can't wait to see my husband as a dad. It really brings tears to my eyes thinking about it. I'm also hormonal and just ate some really spicy food so blame it on those factors.
So here we go headed into 2011.
I'm not even going to make any bold statements about this past year or the year to come because who really knows what will happen.
What I do know is that we serve a faithful God. We are going into the new year with several big questions marks. Question marks that I wish were exclamation marks, but instead they are still lingering questions.
But I won't even try to make assumptions as to what the answers will be, or how it will turn out. I will simply put it in the hands of the One who does know.
So Happy New Year from The Trees! Here's to another year of blogging!!
