2008 – I cannot believe that it has come and gone already!

I started this blog in January of 2008 with the idea of an angel looking over my typing – my banner has changed once since then – not for lack of trying. The general public thought maybe it would be better to keep with Julie & Tyler since that is my signature image – and I love it just as much as when I snapped it.

Last year at this time I had a few wedding bookings and prospects – this year I have 11 bookings with some other inquiries. Senior pictures should take off a little more – along with families. SO EXCITING.

I have another camera and am looking at a computer to buy once the EXPO is done and I have some bookings from that (hopefully).

2008 started without any indication that my jaw would ever feel right and normal – would ever be healed. I sit here now and tell you that it is healed. God has healed me. I still have little twinges here and there – but I know that God has healed me and given me a quality of life that I didn’t think I would ever have again.

2009 is starting with the promise of complete healing and a family. I am now at the point where thinking about having a baby is a reality – not just something to dream about.

Last year Jared and I tried to read through the Bible together and we made it to the end of January – this year – my goal is to read through it together – NO MATTER WHAT – no excuses.

I have a few other goals –

watch less TV –

exercise more –

spend less –

trust more –

worry less –

love more –

fight less.

Spend more time seeking God’s wisdom and truth.

Spend less time dwelling on the past.

Spend more time looking toward the future.

God doesn’t have any resolutions – He keeps His promises.

I think that is amazing – God doesn’t forget to love us.

This new year – I want a renewed spirit – I want to feel God’s love all around me!
