I cannot believe it's been so long since my last post! I have to say, I am looking forward to winter. (call me crazy) The pace for me seems to slow a bit as the year comes to a close. I do my best to savor these last months of the year.

We have been very blessed this year in our business... we have been extremely busy even in this down real estate market. Yes! God answers prayer. He has continued to reveal Himself in ways that bring me to my knees and even on some days face down! He continues to provide all that we need. Yes, there still are "wants", however when God is meeting the "needs" it somehow makes the "wants" not very important! I am thankful for that!

I have had so many blog posts in my head, my heart and even on paper that have yet to make it to cyber space. I am hopeful that this winter season can provide me with more blog time.

I am looking forward to spending more time in the kitchen enjoying the comforts of winter cooking! I am looking forward to many evenings (as well as mornings & afternoons) in front of the fireplace. Many of you know that my fireplace and my comfy chair is my favorite place in our home! I am looking forward to Thanksgiving and preparing for Christmas. I am looking forward to my niece's upcoming wedding on January 1st, 2010.

I am looking forward to the hope of the future and what God has in store for me and my family. I am looking back with joy and gratitude for what the Lord has done! I am looking forward to sharing my journey more regularly with my blogland friends in the weeks to come!

I pray all is well with each one of you! I am excited to continue to peek in on your world and catch a glimpse of what God is doing in your lives!

Have a wonderful week friends! It's good to be back!

Glad to have your words here! I miss stopping by for an update. Enjoy your comfy chair and fire this season. Wish I had a fire to light. Alas, an oil candle from my recent trip to the mts. will have to suffice.

Love you.

Hi there! It's been a while since I visited--and your post was what I needed to read!

The paragraph that starts "I am looking forward to spending more time in the kitchen..." definitely applies to me! I LOVE being in the kitchen and I LOVE sitting my the fireplace!

Prayers and blessings as you enjoy this wonderful Christmas season,
Rebecca
