2008 was a great year. sometimes i can't imagine how it will be any better. seriously, we added a beautiful daughter to our family, we watched our son be baptized, we paid off a ton of debt, and we were part of the awesome movement of God at elevation church. what could be better than all of that??
i am so grateful for such a wonderful year of so many sweet memories. on new year's day, i spent a few minutes reflecting and writing in my journal a list of highlights of the past year. here is a list of some of my highlights of 2008.
