Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

our henry home: best of 2009.

on this last day of 2009, what better to blog than a sampling of posts deemed the best of the past year? the kids have grown A TON, i met my goal of nursing for more than a year, i started teaching, landon celebrated his last 20-something birthday, we celebrated two years and three christmases in san angelo, the blog turned 4-years-old, we DIDN'T have a baby or get pregnant...the list goes on.

following are some of the highlights, monumental and every day.

most evident to me as i scrolled through the busiest year on record (i only posted 163 times) is that God is so faithful. He is working constantly, and He is teaching me more than i could ever convey in words on the internet.

even so, thank you for reading what i have managed to get out this year.

happy new year. best wishes for 2010.
