I'm turning 30 in a few short months. Wow. I'm still trying to digest that. I remember as a teenager, 30 just seemed so OLD. I don't feel old, I don't think I look old. But 30!?!
I always had goals I wanted to accomplish by 30, and I can honestly say, God provided each and every one.
I wanted to own a house. It will be a year in July that we bought our home, and although it took what seemed like forever before we could move in, we're here. We've put so much time, tears and sacrifice into this house, I think we're finally at a point of enjoying it. There are and will always be little weekend projects, but the bulk of renovation is finished. I find myself at peace here, instead of thinking, "Will this ever be home?".
I wanted a community of fellowship. We have become very connected with our church family. We've been at WBCC for 3 years now, and we've established a bond with our friends that is unlike any other. They've really seen us through difficult times, and have remained steady and supportive. It a wonderful feeling when you know that your brothers and sisters in Christ are praying for you. (How sad that I don't have a picture?!?)
I truly believe that the desires in your heart are there by God. All of these things have been important to me since I can remember, and I have been truly blessed to have them all fulfilled.
