Looking back over the year 2006 makes my mind spin just a little. We started out the year with moving our church from one location to another. And from February to August was in a building program to finish the sanctuary That was a lot of work!!! However, the people of the Pentecostal Church are phenomenal and when they set their mind to it, they got it done.
In the midst of all the building program Danelle and I planned a wedding. On August 25th she married a great guy, Matthew Silveira. And they were able to have the wedding in our new church. Not only was the wedding beautiful but the ceremony was kissed with the presence of the Lord. It was very special.
Oh yes, in June Nathan’s oldest brother Gary moved here from Louisiana and lived with us until August when his wife Patricia and her son Christopher joined him here. Just in case Gary reads this, he was no trouble. We enjoyed having him in our home. We probably drove him crazy though, planning a wedding and finishing the church. LOL
A week after the wedding we moved from our small house to a bigger one.
In November my mother-in-law- and father-in-law moved here from Kennewick, Washington, as did Nathan’s youngest brother, Randy. Mom, Dad and Randy have all been living with Gary and Patricia until this past week. Mom and Dad moved into their own place and Randy got an apartment. Again, let me say (in case one of them would read this) they were no trouble for Gary and Patricia. LOL
I have often said that every family is a little dysfunctional but we Hurst’s put the FUN in dysFUNctional. LOL
So you can see it’s been somewhat of a whirlwind year. And this is just the highlights. That’s not counting conferences and meetings, etc. Have you guys ever heard me say I’d rather be busy than bored? Well, I think I would like to be bored for at least a couple of days. LOL
When I look back through all of this I can’t help but say, “Thank you Lord. You have been so good to me. You truly are GREAT. And when my world is rockin’ and turned upside down I know the rock I can cling to. I know the hand I can hold. I know the place I can go for strength, comfort, grace….ANYTHING I need, I find in YOU LORD”.
Looking forward to another year with HIM by my side.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my blogging friends.
May you be blessed more than you can ask or think.
