What a Difference a Year Makes

One year ago today we moved into our (current) house.  It was a glorious day - the day before my birthday, and an answer to prayers that had been prayed for over two years.  The house is really nothing special; we don't own it, it is only 1100 square feet, and it needs a lot of work.  But to us, the house represented God's faithfulness and Him opening new doors for us.  We wanted to be in the same neighborhood as our church, we wanted one extra room, we wanted a place where people could come and fellowship together.  In one year we have been able to adopt a kitty, take a homeless youth in for 5 weeks, have countless parties and get togethers, celebrate Christmas Eve by having dinner with our neighbors and friends, host small groups and Bible studies here, etc... God has truly done great things.

I say this to encourage you:
-That you never know what can happen in a year
-This may be a year that changes your life
-God does hear your prayers
-God will open the doors at the right time
-Keep praying

This day last year:
