2009 In Review

As I began the oh-so-typical reflection that occurs at this time of year, I had much to consider. 2009 was a big year for this girl...a lot of changes, some growing up, much forced growth, tough decisions, many opportunities, and a few milestones.

*My 2009 was jump-started by some sweet time in Australia...where I was able to reconnect with Jesus as I completely disconnected with society.
*January 1, 2009 welcomed in Kansas City, MO at iHOP's One Thing Conference - forever has marked my life and altered my view of worship.
*Began my last semester of college @ Texas A&M, wrapping of four years of relationships, ministry, learning, and blessing.
*March 2009 - returned to LA and revisited the streets and projects in the inner city where I served the previous summer

*March 2009 - ran my first half-marathon in 28 degree, windy weather
*March 2009 - purchased my first business suit and interviewed @ Dallas Heart Group (I was terrified)
*April 2009 - Ayrshire Parents Weekend...my 12 dearest friends and each set up parents congregated in College Station for a weekend of fun
*May 2009 - Attended my last class @ Texas A&M
*May 2009 - Moved in with the then stranger-widow-Brenda Bailey...wow, thank you Jesus.
*May 2009 - Began an internship @ Dallas Heart Group.
*Summer 2009 - First experiences of working "in the real world"
*July 2009 - To Tampa to see/experience the beginnings of Covenant Life Church
*August 2009 - Accepted a full-time job offer from Dallas Heart Group to begin in September
*August 2009 - Graduated from Texas A&M
*August 2009 - Spent some time away in Kansas City @ the House of Prayer...my choice place for resting and solitude in the Spirit.
*Aug-Sept 2009 - Ventured to Malawi, Africa -- which ruined me forever...in a good way.
*September 2009 - Began working full time @ Dallas Heart Group
*Mid-September 2009 - Let the marathon training begin...
*October 2009 - Moved into an apartment in Uptown Dallas
*October 2009 - A&M vs Arkansas @ Cowboys Stadium

*November 2009 - Learned to pay bills, rent, set up direct deposits, manage a credit card, budget an income, choose insurance benefits, 401k, and be a single, working woman - interesting place to find oneself
*December 2009 - Ran and finished the White Rock Marathon in 4 hours and 43 minutes. Decent.

*December 2009 - Home for the holidays...for a few days vs. a month
*New Years Ever 2009 - Spent with many of my closest friends...big D NYE!


2010. Here we are.

Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new," And He said to me, "Write for these words are true and faithful" And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
Revelation 21:5-6

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin to get income with a sum that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now.
