the first year.
this was my first year picture.
it perfectly describes how i felt after that first year in Bend.
amazed that i had made it.
sometimes people say "Jesus is enough, He's all you need."
after my first year in Bend i like to say "You never know that Jesus is all you need until He is all that you have."
i was so alone, afraid, unsure and just plain needy that first year.
i needed everything Jesus has to offer on a daily basis.
that first year put me in a place of dependence that i had never been in.
that first year taught me what real faith was.
i am so thankful for that first year. i don't want to do it again, but i am thankful for it.
it is a year i can always point to when i need to remember the faithfulness of my God.
and so i said it then, let me say it again; Woo-Hoo.
