Too long!

It's been too long between posts. Not alot to say, just little stuff. Well, it looks like my overtime is gone. It was so helpful while it lasted and really helped us to have a Christmas. Still working on debt, but our goal is the end of the year. Josh is now working fulltime at Subway and still with Summer. He is doing well though not much interest in church. Keep praying for his heart to turn to Him. Kristen is working at Ruby Tuesdays as a hostess and going to school for Business admin. She is with Corey still. He transferred from Penn State main to Lehigh Univ this semester as he and Kristen hated being so far apart. With his grades, he can pretty much go anywhere on full scholarships!
Greg and I are doing well. As we are both working, we thank God for jobs! Especially in todays economy. Next weekend is the Sportsmans dinner at church. There is a well-known speaker each year and of course, supper is venison. It's an outreach for people who normally wouldn't go to church as well as a time for good fellowship for mostly men. I served last year and will this year too. But I'm really looking forward to the following weekend when Greg and I get to go away with couples from our church for a weekend retreat. It will be so nice to spend quality time with each other. There will be meetings and free time as well as a really nice dinner Saturday night. After the meeting on Sunday, we'll come home and what's even better is that it isn't real far. It's in Plymouth Meeting. Of course it's over Valentine's weekend! :)
Mom and Dad are doing well. It is nice having them so close.
Enough for now!

Changing my story

For 2010, we are reading "The Story". Today at the women's breakfast, Pastor Liz spoke about changing our story. It doesn't matter what our circumstances, how bad/good we were raised or what we have come from. If we allow Him, who is all powerful and loves us more than we can fathom, He can change our story! I don't need to wallow in self pity, depression, making excuses for everything I can't do because of this, that or the other thing. I CAN do anything He wants me to! If I follow His Word and live the life He wants for me, anything can happen! How exciting is that! What an adventure He and I will have this year! Can't wait to see what He will do through me!

A New Year!

Welcome 2010! I'm not one for New Year's resolutions but I do like to set some goals for the year. Greg and I have definitely benefitted from the Financial Peace University course we took and I want to continue that trend. I think this is the first Christmas I have come out of without credit card debt! Yay! That is more due to Greg than me. We would like to be debt-free this year, not including our mortgage. I want to increase my devotion time. It is really hard with the hours I've been putting in at work, but hopefully that will start to decrease and I just need to make it a point to spend longer time studying and talking to Him. There is more but I've bored you enough! What are you going to do differently this year?
