2008 is Zooming By

As you can see, I haven't gotten a chance to keep up with my blog page. I am reminded that there is a time for everything in life. One of my favorite passages from the bible is from Ecclesiastes 3: 1-15

A Time for Everything
1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
9 What does the worker gain from his toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. 13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.
15 Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account.

Though January has gone by zooming past me, I know that God is taking care of every detail of my life. I have to trust Him and do my part. There will be more updates to come, but here's just a grocery list of right now:
1. We bought a new home.
2. I'll be competing in a pagaent next month.
3. I'm still trying to keep up with training on my next Marathon: Marathon de Paris.
4. Michael is trying to decide on one of three promotions.
5. We are trying to start our family.
6. Our current house needs sold.

This is just highlights, there's more exciting things to come...2008 is definitely going to keep us busy and happy...PRAISE GOD! :)
