God is Great, Beer is Good, and People Are Crazy!

When I heard this song earlier this year I already knew that it would be the title to my year-end post. 2009 has been a roller coaster ride for us and we have experienced the greatness of our God through tough circumstances, the goodness of beer (or wine in my case), and the fact, that as sinful people, we are just plain crazy.

While I am usually very open and personal on my blog there have been many things I have been unable to share publicly about this year due to the private nature of our struggles. It has been a tough year that has followed a tough year and Doug and I are just worn out. In addition to our very private matters, we welcomed a new baby, saw my parents move too far away, and endured the effects of a tough economy.

Amazingly, I still am overwhelmed with the grace, mercy, and abundance that God has given us. In spite of our sin and definite imperfections He still seems to be there to comfort, provide and bless us.

Here's to kissing 2009 goodbye and looking forward to a very wonderful, promising, and possibly crazy 2010. Blessings from our home to yours!
