Three Year Blogging Anniversary

Wow, I can't believe it has been three years since I started this blog. So much has happened in the past three years. I said goodbye to little Isaac and Gabe Schniedler when they no longer needed a nanny after two years. Ruth and Chris were married. My Grampa passed away and that same summer we all grieved as Gabe DeRoo was killed in Iraq leaving Hannah and little Gabriel behind. Gabriel had his first birthday and we were all there to celebrate. I mourned as I lost my first pregnancy. I was hired on at Starbucks. The blogging community and many many more mourned with Rach when she lost her little girl Hannah. My brother moved to Alaska and back again (a couple times). Little Leo Rogers was born to Ruth and Chris. We celebrated when Hannah met Willie and they were married this past summer and are now expecting a little one to be Gabriel's little brother Billy. And now I am expecting a little one. There have been many camping trips and countless hiking adventures. I could go on and on. But in the middle of all the changes, happy and sad, God always remains the same. I don't know what the next year will hold, sorrow, joy or even both, but I know God will remain constant and be there through it all.

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, and comes from the Father of lights, with Whom there is no variation or shadow of turning." James 1:17

Sweet Annie,

Isn't Romans 8:28 a wonderful promise in which to rest? In His providence, God orchestrates every event, even suffering (and sin - all things - 100% word!), for the benefit of those who love Him.

I love the Christmas music.

I love "the plum".

And I love you too!
