I feel like an old timer saying this but time is literally flying by. Now it years instead of days that seem to just slip through my fingers.
2006 ended our time in Alberta and brought us back to BC. It saw us buy our dream property and attempt to get settled on the West coast.
2007 continued our journey. We made some major changes in our financial life, took on a lot of risk and learned some hard lessons about partners. (If I sound a bit cagey on this one, it's on purpose. It wasn't a fun time but hopefully lessons hard learned are the ones that stay with us!)
We also began the huge project that is our "dream property". When I speak of it in this way, I'm thinking of what it could be not what it is at this minute. At this moment it's lovely but...needs tons of work.
Here's the new driveway we put in, in the spring....
I love history. Of all kinds. I think it's important to look back as nations and as individuals in order to move forward. I love seeing God's hand in our lives. When I'm right in the moment I don't always see it but when I look back I can see His purpose being realized in our lives.
I wish everyone a Happy beginning to 2008. I hope this year brings you joy and new possibilities. Every year brings some new adventure. I just have to remind myself that adventures are not supposed to be safe:)
Happy New Year!!!
