Wow! It's hard to believe it's been nearly two months since I've written on here. Seems like life has been crazy and the time has flown by.
We spent a year planning a trip to Disney World over Thanksgiving with my whole family. It was such a great trip and wonderful time together. It was far from being a restful trip overall, but we made some wonderful memories that week. I've really grown to treasure these opportunities for time together. We are not promised tomorrow, so I love it when we get the chance to do something different together. We were all very thankful to be together during that time of year, and to enjoy the gorgeous FL weather.
Now, we are preparing to celebrate Christmas. We will get time with both of our families as well as some dear friends, and we are all excited about this special time of the year. One of the things I am most excited about this year, beyond the time with family, gifts, celebrations, etc., is that I am almost finished reading through the entire Bible, chronologically, for the first time in my life! I got a little behind this fall, but have a plan to finish by December 31st. I've always known God's word was life changing, but have experienced it so much more this year. I finally understand so much more about history and how all the parts of the Bible fit together as a whole. It's truly amazing! I can't wait to finish so I can start over again on Jan. 1!
