Wow, looking back on 2010, everything that could possibly change for John Wayne and I (for the better), has. If we didn’t still look the same, you wouldn’t even know who we are!
Our 2010 time-line…
January 4th – John Wayne started a new job at Gordon Insurance in Limon.
January 4th – Our house in Colorado Springs went up on the market.
March 1st – The Little Lady joined us.
August 11th – The house went under contract.
September 11th – We moved back to the ranch in Wild Horse and into the trailerhood.
September 13th – I started in the Limon office of Farm Credit.
September 20th – We closed the sale of our house in Colorado Springs.
After 35 weeks, or 250 days, or 6,000 hours, or 360,000 minutes or 21,600,000 seconds…of keeping the house in tip-top showing condition while preparing for a baby, and packing up and leaving for what felt like 17 million showings while having a newborn, our faith was at times tested. Finally, after 250 days, our faith was renewed as we were once again reminded that our God does have a perfect plan.
My folks moved out of the trailer into their new house the first week of September and we moved in the second week of September, and began making the trailerhood our new home. Without those 250 days, all of this would not have been possible.
As I look back at everything that has happened during 2010, at times it all still seems quite surreal to me…Did all of these wonderful things really happen to us this year? What did we do to deserve many of our long-term dreams becoming realities at the young age of 28? I can’t figure it out…all I can do is give glory to our God!
Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. I Chronicles 29:13
Wishing you and yours a 2011 filled with health and happiness surrounded by those you love.
