A new year...a new focus.

**CLARIFICATION**:  I've gotten some questions and concerns about some of the things in this post, so let me clarify...

First, no, I am not quitting my job.  The business we are looking into is something for Richard and he won't be quitting his job, either.  It will be something he does on the side, but something that he has really been researching and praying about.  

Second, we are not moving away from Childress.  We are always looking for the possibility of a good business deal by getting into another house.  Plus, eventually we are going to need more room and our house is TINY!  So, we're considering putting our house on the market and seeing what happens.  Again, right now, just a good possibility, but things we are praying about

 Today is the first day of 2010, and with it comes great promises and hope for our family.  Here are a few of the things I am looking forward to in the coming year.  These aren't necessarily resolutions, just things on my heart and in my prayers.

-a successful school year
-a possible new business
-a possible move (in town)
-a trip to Peru
-getting back in shape again
-learning a little more Spanish
-being a more attentive wife
-working another Emmaus walk

And most importantly...

-growing in, with, and through my heavenly Father, holding TIGHT to the joy he has buried deep in my soul.

Go here to read a short piece on Christ in 2010.

Here's a little excerpt to pique your interest.

God does his greatest work on the anvil of our afflictions. Out of the fiery furnace of your trials, your faith produces an imperishable spiritual treasure. So Christian, look to the future with the utmost confidence knowing that God is at work. He will have His glory and will work all things together for your good.
