My Top Ten Photographs of 2009

I’m not sure how I managed to pick these photos out of the thousands I took last year… and limiting it to 10 was tough, but I managed it. They might not be the best photos, but each one of them touch a bit of my story 2009.

These pictures are stories that speak to my life: hope, peace, forgiveness, love, family, renewal, culture, fun, relationship and travel are a few of the words that come to mind. The stories in these images helped me through one of the most difficult years in my life and have been very healing.

In many ways I’m still healing… for that, I’m so thankful for Jesus who truly is the greatest healer. (Jehovah-Rapha) He is more than any photo or book could contain. How exciting to see little glimpses of Him all around us.

I can’t wait to see what TEN photos come from this year and what stories they will bring.

As the year comes to an end.

UGH!  Is it me or has this year gone by to quickly?  It seems as if I was just with my friends on the other side of the world and now I’m here in central Washington covered in snow.

However, the year is not over and I hope to complete several unfinished and looooonnnnng over due posts.  (now where did I leave off in Israel?)

A friend of mine blogged recently, “what next year looks like?  What are my goal?  How do I hope to enter 2010 and what do I need to accomplish?” He’s already thinking about 2010. Crumb!

What are your goals for next year?  BTW, are goals different from resolutions?  

2010 will be here sooner than any of us know.  I have a lot in mind for 2010 including, lord willing, a return trip to Uganda, Africa.  Perhaps Israel again.?  Although, my desire is to bring my daughter Hannah along for the next trip.  Not sure what that looks like or how it will be accomplished, but that’s the plan. Thus the importance of focusing on 2009.

So, before this year is over, here’s my list to do by January 1, 2009:

Finish my one pic a week gallery

Finish my post of my trip to Israel

Reset my page (DONE) you can check it outhere.

Change the look of my current blog page at for my 52 week photo challenge.

Back up 2008 photos (half done)

For next year… That will be another post.
