2008 and 2009

So I am going to be cliche and write a post recapping the year 2008 and talking about the upcoming year 2009. I was noticing that 2008 was an interesting and big year for me. Some of the highlights had to include
  • Running a 1/2 marathon and moving into a newly purchased condo in the same weekend.
  • Gaining 2 new roommates in July when Nathan and Joanna moved in with us.
  • My husband and I grew closer to one another. I have a new found respect for him and have realized that he is truly the love of my life and best friend and perfect partner for me. I am so blessed to have him in my life.
  • I fell in love with God. I realized that He is the only one that really matters and my heart feels so in love with Him. I feel so much closer to Him than I did a meager 1 year ago and I am so excited about this journey through the rest of my life diving into him.
  • Josh and I started helping out with the Youth Group at our church
  • I started helping with Worship at our church and realized that worship is where I feel fulfilled and whole. I could spend hour upon hour before the throne worshiping my King and Creator.
  • I have a new found love for my darling family. Ewings and Michaels. Both sides are so unique and amazing. I love my fun crazy sisters, my mom, my dad and all of my in-laws. I only wish that I could spend more time with all them. We just live so dang far away.
In 2009 I plan on continuing with a lot of the previously mentioned things that were planted in 2008. But in addition I have 2 "resloutions" if you will for the new year. I am going to put them on here so my hundreds of thousands of readers can hold me accountable.
  1. I have been feeling an urgency in my heart to know more of the scriptures. The more I thought about it I realized that I don't think I have ever completely read through the book in entireity. The book that I base my life on I don't think I have read all the way through! Crazy! So my first "resloution" or promise is that I plan on trying to read through the whole bible in one year.
  2. Over the Ewing family Christmas my dad blessed me with an amazing gift. He gave me the first guitar that he ever made. It is BEAUTIFUL! And I was so overwhelmed by the generosity that I cried. He worked for over a year on the piece and put so much labor into it and I can't believe he would give me his first "baby." So my 2nd resolution is to learn to play the guitar better and start leading worship at a small group leading from my new Ewing guitar.
At the beginning of 2010 someone needs to check in and see if I followed through with my vows/promises to myself :)


  1. Did you forget to include your resolution to write any blogs? Ha ha. jk.

  2. Shut your face. I posted a new one today. Life is busy...I do need to post more though.

  3. Babe, you are amazing and all those things that happened in 2009 laid an even stronger foundation in you on which the Lord can grow.
