Tomorrow's my birthday...

This is not my normal blog entry! You may already know what's coming...I get all reflective around my birthday, anniversary, new year, and well any new season really! Looking back on the last couple of years I can see with such clarity. God is at work in my life. 2009 has been an incredible year...I know we're only 2 months in but, it's been one of the greatest years of my life so far. Something has changed in my heart and I want more. What I mean is I want more out my relationships, more in my marriage, and I want to pour more into my kids. It's so easy to settle and I know I have...but, I pray I won't from this point on.

There is a lot going on in my immediate family and extended family right now. I know this year will be huge for us and I know we'll need each other more then ever. It is my prayer that I would serve my family with the same (or more) passion than I give to photography. Sad but, true. Sometimes it's easier to serve strangers. I want to be a better sister, daughter, mother and wife - that's not even mentioning the kind of friend I want to be! And I'm going to spend this year going deeper in the Lord and living with expectation that His love will pour out of me and into my relationships.

I have high hopes...I know, I'm the eternal optimist!
