Just think..... and Happy New Year!

Just think,
you're here not by chance,
but by God's choosing.
His hand formed you and made you
the person you are.
He compares you to no one else--
you are one of a kind.
You lack nothing
that His grace can't give you.
He has allowed you to be here
at this time in history
to fulfill His special purpose
for this generation.
--Roy Lessin

What a blessing to be able to look back on this year and see God's hand of faithfulness and blessing in our lives. He has been so good to us this year (and every year!) and I am excited to see His plans for my family in 2010.

One of the blessings God gave me in 2009 was getting know and read about all of you through blogger. You have each been such a blessing in my life! Thank you for your wonderful, encouraging posts, comments, etc. I am so thankful for you all! :)

Blessings to you in 2010!

Hey Marissa and Andrea. My name is Tessa. I'm one of Laura Lazet's music students, and I know I've at least met Marissa at the summer recitals. Somehow I stumbled upon this blog, and it was exactly what I've needed... I guess encouragement to keep moving on and reminders that Jesus really does give hope and grace. So thank you a lot for writing these posts!
