Tonight, we are going to have a sparkling grape juice toast with our boys about where they were this time last year, and where they want to be this time next year...we also will ask them to think about what they will have to do to actually get there.

The hubbs and I thought about our answers to these questions, and we both sighed... this time last year, we were in Colorado with our old youth group and friends' youth group last year...and next year want to be with family.  So many things to do before next New are my hopes for 2011:

> Live in a different country
> Complete my Master's Degree coursework
> Move back to Texas (definitely more a hope at this point)
> Find a job for the hubbs and me
> Continue to seek God's will for each of these steps

So it's going to be a busy year...but I think what is the most encouraging to me is that I see so much potential love to have and to give.

Much love,
Emily Elizabeth


  1. As Mark Twain said:
    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

    I am very proud of the way you and Jon have "thrown off your bowlines and sailed away from safe harbor." I can hardly wait to see what God will do in your lives through this great adventure!
