Oh, so that’s how it’s gonna be.

I’m figuring you out, blog reader. You are the strong, silent type. How do I know? Well, in the last 2 days, I have had almost 170 visitors stop by my blog. And 14 votes on my yard sale/good will debate. That’s roughly 8% of you willing to vote. Like I said, strong, but silent. I see how you roll.

Don’t stress about it at this point. I’m with my small vocal majority- Good Will, here I come…. at some point…. when I am done cleaning…. someday….

I get it though – you want me to keep on my side of the screen, you on yours. Or maybe you just don’t want to appear bossy? Telling me what to do? I hear that.

BUT…. what you need to know is that there are some AWESOME things on the horizon for you, my blog reader.

Things like a GIVEAWAY from someone who is a BIG DEAL……

and a COMPETITION that will involve the ENTIRE United States of America (no kidding)…..

All in the month of January.

You better buckle up. Because it’s about to get crazy up in here.

And I have GOT to quit drinking coffee at night. Seriously. Can someone remind me that I am no longer 17, I’m 27?!? And caffeine, yes, does in fact effect me at this point? Gracious.

I perused a blog of someone I don’t know today (raise your hand if you are shocked… I didn’t think so) and the girl gave me an idea. She asks God for a theme verse for the year.

So I’m asking for my 08 verse.

I’m really excited about 08. Which is weird, because I’m usually an odd number girl. But for some reason, I feel a lot of anticipation about what 08 holds. I love that God never says “Yep, that was the best year you are ever going to have”, but He always seeks to give us, stretch us, challenge us, and bless us MORE. He’s a giver like that.

I pray 2008 is your year of MORE.

    Looking forward to 08 with you as well. 07 was as they say “a year to remember”. Yes, with the valley we walked and continue to walk I want to remember. I to feel 08 will continue to bring continued healing to Katherine but I feel that He has something waiting on her and our family this year. Your blog has made me thing, smile, cry and yearn for more. My goal this year is to think things through a little more and figure out how to make the pieces fit. Then use everything to give back. Hoping my blog will help me do just that. Make a memory today dear Annie!

    Caroline, not soon enough.

    Sharliss, I pray that 08 is a HEALING and RESTORING year for y’all. May He give you MORE than you could ask or expect. And thank you for your kind words. 🙂

    remember how we said “we’re on vacation, we can drink regular coffee”? apparently the vacation factor doesn’t nullify the caffine content. i was up until 4a.m. last night. lesson learned. maybe.
