New year, New Start, New Life

When Christmas ends, it means that the new year is just around the corner. It's hard to believe that 2010 is over and it's time to head into 2011.

As I contemplate my goals for the New Year, which is not a bad thing to do on an annual basis, I think about how God took us on a mighty adventure this past year. Among other things:

* we had to get our affairs in order, as Terri and I have lived in SOCAL for 22 years together;
* we had to deal with impossible renters in our Utah home, as they did a pretty good job of trashing our home;
* we had to finish the school year;
* we had to make plans for Carissa, and until May, we really didn't know where she would end up (and she finally decided on Grossmont for her sophomore year);
* we had to sell a house, a stretch of faith in this market, and endure negotiations that tested our patience;
* we had to take two trips with rented trucks (driven by my friend Mark--thanks!) and bring all of our "stuff" to Utah;
* we had to paint, repair, and spend a lot of money getting our house in order;

Since June, Terri was able to get a job at Costco, we have started up our Agape Photography business (church directories), we enrolled the kids in the public schools, and we acclimated ourselves to a new home, new church, and new friends. It's been an adventure.

Now we look forward to the New Year and all that God has in store for us. May God bless you in the New Year!
