We are very excited about this upcoming year. Each of the kids are getting a chance to live out a dream. We have never been able to do this before. Two years ago we were at an all time low with no idea how we were even going to get our utilities on, much less afford our children's dreams! But God, in His mercy brought people into our lives who had the tools to give us hope again. Our life began to turn around with the council and care of some wonderful people at Advocare. Doors began opening and things began happening. Family stepped in and provided very practical aid. God has continued to move the chess pieces in our life and make a way where there seemed to be no way. Here we are two years later, continuing to grow and be changed: seeing dreams and desires realized in the process. Look at those beautiful children and the smiles on their faces as they step into their desires. They are made for such a time as this. Not just to get through another day, but to live and love and be a light. Certainly football, woodworking and ballet aren't the most important things in life, but learning to try, give it all, get out of our comfort zones, commit to a goal and enjoy a desire fulfilled are all worthy of some excitement. God is good. We are blessed. Never going back. How about you? Are you living?
