Overflowing with THANKS

I am amazed that this year is coming to an end already ... and I absolutely LOVE Thanksgiving for so many reasons : Time with family with,great food, rest, reflection, and time for me to journal and remember the things the Lord has taught us this year and what we are looking forward to in 2010 !
2009 has been a challenging year ... Sammy is no longer traveling that much with music and has focused more on "in town" writing projects and starting his own business online. This ...coupled with me transitioning into "stay at home mom" and working only 2 days a week really had us TESTED for financial provision. We were faced with many tough months in the last year as we were believing God for his plan to unfold with our business etc.. and WE SAW JUST THAT! We have been blown away by God's faithfulness this year of OVERFLOW AND ABUNDANCE and have been able to pay things off , pay bills AND bless others! We know that being self employed in today's economy is a FAITH WALK monthly...but as we continue to trust the Lord and serve him first , we are seeing breakthrough and we are seeing God's heart for us. I have finally realized that in God's kingdom...there is NO BAD ECONOMY! :) He will make a way!
This thanksgiving we are SO thankful for the hard journeys that we embark on... because although it's hard to rejoice in trials... our TRUE character is revealed and God is GLORIFIED!
