Life really is like a roll of toilet paper.
The closer you get to the end,
The faster it goes....
It just seems like yesterday I was training myself to write 2010
and now it's time to write 2011.
This has been one of the most interesting years of my life.
After a year without a job, Ted headed to North Dakota
for 6 months. There we met wonderful folks, enjoyed peaceful places, and bought a house. But before we ever moved in, he moved on to a job in Louisiana.
Here, we've enjoyed our favorite foods and warm weather,
while North Dakota folks are trudging through one of their worst winters ever.
In 2010 I have been to Guatemala, New Mexico, North Dakota, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Louisiana. I have always wanted to travel and see other places. But the thing about living vs.vacationing, is that you get to know people, customs, and history of that place. It's a different perspective than just passing through.
This year, I've been privileged to go on a mission trip to Guatemala, a girlfriend trip to an Albuquerque conference, and many wonderful places with my husband. I have loved visiting different churches and Bible Studies. I was a facilitator for a study in North Dakota, and a substitute Sunday School teacher in a Nazarene Church. And I won fourth place in a chili cook-off in Alexander, ND!
This year is my last year in this decade, as I turn 60 in 2011. I'm beginning to feel older - the body is just tired more often. But it is still the best year of my life. I pray the next 30 years are more of the same - only better.
Thank you, Jesus.
