As family we go

 Rend Collective's "As Family We Go" has been my anthem song this past year and most likely will carry into this current one. 

A song of praise for the One who has led us through both triumph and defeat, mountain tops and valleys low.

And He has given us family to walk it with us.  Shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand, into 2016...

Your grace will never be forgot
Your mercy all my life
Will be my soul's forever song
My story and my light

 January: Paul turns 33!

 February:  a get away weekend with long-time friends

From mountaintop to valley low
Through laughter and through tears
Surely the goodness of my God
Will follow all the years

 March:  Spring Break at Pokagon State Park

 April: Mud puddle fun

 May: Madeline graduates Preschool and a weekend trip to Michigan to meet up with friends

In all our failures and regrets
You've always led us home
Redemption's arm has raised us up
Our triumph in the storm

 June: long awaiting excavating project, and just in time: over 11 inches of rain in one month!  

June also had baseball games and a family vacation to Virgina

 For all that You have done, for us
For every battle won
We'll raise a song to bless Your heart
For all that You have done

 July: the long-anticipated arrival of the Wiegands and a trip to Illinois for a reunion and to see Grandma Jane

 August: last swim party with the Muellers since next summer they will be in Papua New Guinea.  And our youngest starts Kindergarten!

 September: family campouts and baseball games

 October: evening walks and running the Columbus marathon

 November: an early snow and celebrating Thanksgiving with family

 December:  family get togethers, farewell to the Muellers, taking in Christmas lights, and celebrating Christ's birth

In unity we'll stand as one
As family we'll go
Shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand
Into the great unknown.
