Time Flies

It is hard for me to believe I am even writting this post. There is one more day (of course after today) left in January 2008. I thought 2008 would never come. I remember being in high school thinking to myself that I would be graduating college in May of 2008...I had the whole world in front of me. I actually graduated in May of 2007 (Yes I got a 4 year bachelors degree, i just did it in 3 years taking classes any time they were offered...i am explaining this in greater detail because I always get asked this questions).

Here is what January 2008 was filled with:

  • Daniel staying at home to go full time support raising.

  • God providing more supporters both prayerfully and finacially.

  • I, Magen, have gotten 2 invites to be a bridesmaid in one of my best friend's, Ellen, wedding and Matron of Honor in Stephanie's wedding! I am super excited! I was telling Ellen the other day that it is something so special to stand by a friend while they confirm before God, family, and friends how much they love one another!

  • Daniel has gotten to spend GOOD quality time with his best friend, Ryan, which was greatly needed!

  • We got a wii, flat screen tv and a ps3 (christmas and birthday money...we could not afford it otherwise).

  • We have gotten to spend very sweet time with a couple of buddies of ours.

  • Madie had her first birthday!!!

  • and much more...i am running out of time to write this post! I look forward to Feburary 2008...more supports, the opportunity to share our calling with others, women's retreat, missions conference at sebc, moving in with the in laws, spending time together, ryan's b'day, valentines day, men's retreat to name a few things! I will leave you with a verse that has really touched my heart dearly and that Daniel and I cling to through this time of the unknown!

    "Without faith it is impossible to please God." Hebrews 11:6
