The Past {ten} Years

Today starts my final week being spent in my 20's. For next week at this time, I begin in on a new decade...30!
I know for some, reaching this point in their lives is troublesome and upsetting.
Me? Eh...it's just another chapter in my written story. Another part of this amazing journey that I am forever blessed to be on.
However, in lieu of this most important chapter, I thought I would reflect back on the past ten years of my life...the ten years spent in my twenties...and reminisce a bit. It is quite amazing how much wonder and joy can be accomplished in ten years!

:: buying our first home
:: honeymooning
:: finding out we were pregnant...joy!
:: hearing that little heartbeat for the first time
:: feeling the little kick of baby feet
:: becoming a mother
:: falling in love...again...with this beautiful, little, blessing
:: re-dedicating my life to Christ
:: being water baptized with my husband
:: dedicating a promise to my daughter and to Jesus that we will raise her to know and love Him
:: finding out we were pregnant...again!
:: finding out we were having a little boy
:: quitting my job to stay home full time...a dream come true
:: having the littlest bundle of joy placed in my arms almost three years ago and feeling my heart getting ready to burst because it was full of so much love!
:: another dedication and a promise to teach him Jesus all the days of his life
:: reading through the entire Bible in 90 days
:: baking homemade bread for the first time
:: making new friends
:: re-kindling old friendships
:: becoming a coffee-a-holic
:: realizing just how good sushi really is
:: started a blog
:: decided to homeschool
:: watching the love my children have for each other grow
:: being here to experience all the "new" in my childrens lives
:: sewed a quilt
:: sewed clothing and toys for my children
:: knitted a sweater
:: discovering new dreams
:: truly realizing and appreciating the littlest things in life that are worth the most
:: expecting a third, tiny, miracle
:: seeing my daughters faith outshine mine
:: crying tears of joy at the first sounds of my children praying
:: realizing that laughter truly is the best medicine
:: learning to trust
:: humbling myself before Him who has blessed me with so much

to be continued...

What an amazing journey God has placed me on and I am thrilled to start on this new chapter. So much more to take place in our lives, I am sure of it! He has not given up on me yet and I know He never will!

Thank you, Lord, for an amazing 29 years! Looking forward to all you have in store for me as this chapter closes and another one begins; for you write the most amazing, beautiful, stories. I am truly honored and blessed to call you my King!

  1. Happy birthday! I just had this "crossing over" myself in March! Like you, it was really no big deal! Sounds like you have had many things to be thankful for and your post reflects mine in so many ways it is ironic! http://psalm23five.blogspot.com/search/label/turning%2030
    Many more adventures to come!

  2. It is so wonderful to reflect back on milestones in life and all of the blessings God has given us. I crossed over to the half-century mark two years ago and God is still sending wonderful blessings. Aren't all the seasons of life wonderful? Have a happy birthday. I enjoy your positive blog!
