Hello There!

Well, it’s a new month in a new year! I am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for us in 2010, and pray that it will be a blessed year for you all. Whatever comes our way, it is all in the Lord’s sovereign hands and we can find such peace and rest when we trust Him to work out His plan in His time.

We have started back to school, which has had a few bumps, but seems to be going smoother now – it’s hard for all of us to get back in the routine, but also feels good to have more “regular” days at home, rather than being so busy outside the house all the time.

Yesterday we celebrated Matthew’s 19th birthday! How does the time fly? We will be celebrating with the whole family this weekend, as well as celebrating his graduation, even though he has basically been finished since last year. He begins taking courses at a local college in a week or two. He will be taking 4 classes – English, Speech, Sociology, and Humanities. He has been saving furiously for a car, and should be able to buy one when the right one appears any day now.

Along with starting back to school with the kids, I have been spending my days packing up the Christmas decorations, and redecorating the house. I usually just put everything back out in their normal spots, but this year I am finding myself wanting to change things up, not putting out so many knick knacks and moving things around a bit. I am trying to lighten the load around the house – less cluttered and more space than we have had previously.

Basketball and Cheerleading have started up for Michael and Anna – they have had two games already and are enjoying it. We do these through the Upwards program at an area church – this is our 4th year there – we are always pleased with the program – good teaching with a Christian focus, and not too much pressure or time involved. Tommy and Sarah have started back their ice skating lessons once a week and are learning some harder moves already this year.

Our ladies Bible study has begun a new study that will last throughout this year. We are studying Martha Peace’s book “The Excellent Wife”. We have a lot of ladies joining in, and are looking forward to a good year of study.

Well, enough updates for now ~ I’ll be posting my Daybook next, a little later than usual, but one of my favorite ways to start a new week. Have a wonderful day wherever you are, and stay warm!
