Leap Day 2008

A great posting idea taken from here:

In honor of Leap Day, here's a tiny history lesson:


4 years ago (let's see, that was 2004...):

I was single. I had recently returned from my Hawaii Adventure and recovering emotionally from some hurts I sustained while there. I was living with Mom and Dad, my sister and her husband were still living in Georgia. (The emotional hurts were more than just a 'skinned knee,' people--they were really deep and we were all still in the midst of the hurt and healing process.)

That was a really hard season for me and for all of us. It was tough, let me tell you, and we still deal with some of the fallout from that season. But I also have a deeper and stronger knowledge of the Lord's faithfulness even in the midst of terrible hurt.



I am a married woman, coming up on my 3rd anniversary of being engaged. I am not working (the business I was working for closed) but am looking for a teaching job for next year and for a hold-me-over job for right now. I am taking one class at Covenant College. I loooooove my honey!


In 4 years:

Hah! 2012? I have no idea...but ideally, here are some goals: own a house, have at least one child, and possibly relocate. But who KNOWS what the Lord will bring us? We offer our plans and goals and ideals to him, and when life throws us a curveball, we do our best to do what is right in the sight of the Lord. (Thankfully, we know that 'life's curveballs' really and truly are ordained by the Lord--and that He is faithful and good even when those curveballs are horrible and terrible and awful.)
