I can hardly believe how fast 2014 has passed. I have such vivid memories of last New Year’s Eve, that I find it hard to understand that we’re at another one. As I get older, I find this saying to be more and more true: “The days are long, but the years are short.”
This year has been nothing short of amazing. Preacherman and I continue to fall more in love with Jacksonville, the people, and our hearts are broken for the city. We are so excited to be here and to be used by God to reach others for the Kingdom. Though there are times where we find ourselves missing North Carolina, our family, our friends, and all the great restaurants we love; we are enjoying the challenges of getting acclimated to a new city, making new friends, and finding new restaurants to love. I’m finally starting to find my way around to the point of not requiring Google Maps directions everywhere I go. A new grocery store has opened up closer to home that allows me to get fresh salmon weekly. Our little one started kindergarten this year and continues to amaze us. Small victories, but victories nonetheless. We are truly blessed.
And now we gear up for 2015. We are praying and believing for God to move in us and through us like never before. 2015 will be a landmark year in our lives, and I’m looking forward to watching things unfold!
Believing God’s best for you and yours in 2015!
Be encouraged! Peace and blessings!
