Happy New Years

Today was such a fabulous day! There really aren't any other words to describe it. What a way to start out the New Year, but with going to church and worshiping the one true God! Church was fab.u.lous today! Worship was powerful. Communion was incredible. The sermon today was ah-mazing! All I can say is, Wow! I'm so thankful for the
Word that was spoken today! I'm so thankful for the words that were spoken into me and the prayers that were prayed over me today. TLC, you are amazing! Thank you for always being sensitive to the presence of God!

It seems as though everything that was brought forth today was exactly what I needed to hear. His presence was so strong I couldn't help but weep. His love is overwhelming. At the end of service we had foot washing. But not your typical foot washing. *if you know my foot fettish you will understand what I was feeling when Pastor announced that LOL* But it was not your typical. We knelt down with each other and began to pray. It was one of the most powerful things. His presence was overwhelming and amazing!

I know I've said how much I was looking forward to putting 2011 BEHIND me. And I am definitely thankful for yet another year. But you know. No matter what happened in 2011...all the good, bad, and ugly. All the happiness, all the pain, all the tears, the mountain tops, the valleys; if it hadn't of been for each of those seasons-we wouldn't have learned anything. Things happen for a reason. God knows exactly what He is doing. And if we hadn't of gone through what we went through, good or bad, we wouldn't be a better person today. We grow from our seasons. This goes along with what Ken Cantrell said today...and it convicted me. So yes, thankful that 2011 is behind us, but we are still BLESSED!!!

After church, we had to have another last minute photo op before everyone left town again! Never mind the red eyes and puffy cheeks. :)
