In the last 2 years since I have been regular blogger I realized how much I missed when I did not have a place to jot down stories and place photos linked to them. As I try to organize scrapbooks and school memory books, my older blogs have "saved" the day.
So whether anyone reads this or not I hope to keep this up to date with daily or weekly stuff from our corner of the world.
I did not mind in the least saying Goodbye to 2013. It was just not a year I was fond of. There were some very neat things that happened, but too much in terms of hurt, pain and struggle. There have been some positive things happen here at the end of the year and I am ready to move forward.
Church has been such a huge answer to prayer. After two extremely painful years, we are now in a place to move forward and grow. Fall of 2013 brought Phil Carroll and his family to Sterling KS as our head pastor. We have had some powerful sermons, amazing singing and more involvement than I have seen in 10+ years. New Years Eve was spent in our fellowship hall with so many of our youth and their friends and our church members came to fellowship, play games and EAT. It was great. In fact I was having too much fun to take photos, so I must rely on one Erin shared with me. She brought her friend Ileria with her and they are in the AWANA Cubbie puppet house.
