Happy New Year!

With 2009 drawing to a close and a new decade upon us I suppose it’s time to review.  There have been so many ups and downs but one thing  is for sure 2009 was certainly not boring!  On the church front I started leading worship and found that I’m not too bad at it despite my lack of confidence.  Lee has been helping me sing better (thanks love!).  Also Lee and I started a small group that we hope to keep going into the new year.  Speaking of Lee she started Grad School this fall and received a 4.0!!!  She’s amazing!  Work has also had it’s ups and downs but things ended the year on an up note.  Still trying to find the balance between work and pray but I think every one struggles with that…don’t you?

There were some sad points as well.  There were some deaths in the family.  My uncle Jimmy (my step-mom’s brother) passed away in July.  Then shortly there after Lee’s uncle Nick passed away.  My father lost his job and is now moving to Albany for a new one.  I’ve never lived more than 10 minutes from him before so I’m a bit apprehensive about that.  We’ll see how that pans out.

As the new year draws closer it’s time for new beginnings.  There are some things about myself that I want…no need to change.  Some health issues that I need deal with.  Things like quitting smoking and losing weight.  I’ve been paying for a gym membership for 6 months that I’ve only used a handful of times!  Also I need to start handling money much better.

In any event 2009 we a mixed year.  I just pray this new year and decade is amazing.  What are your thoughts/memories of the last year?
