Can I mess up or not fulfill God's purpose for my life?  What if I miss it?  Can I live my life to completion and never realize what God has for me?
These are a few questions that have been on my mind the past few days.  A friend gave me 2 scriptures to look up pertaining to the question of God's purpose on our lives.  I took it a bit further and looked up a few more verses...

'The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord endures forever- do not abandon the works of Your hands.'  Psalms 138:8

'For when David had served God's purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his fathers and his body decayed.'  Acts 13:36

'And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.'  Romans 8:28

'For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.'  Ephesians 2:10

'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

If I am in Christ, He has called me to a purpose, one just for me, that in the end will glorify Him.  He has began a good work in me and will see it completed before he takes me home.  In order to find this purpose, I must walk daily in His precepts, develop a relationship with Him, listen to what He has to say and then obey His leading.  He will guide my steps to the path He desires for me to travel.

A New Year of Morrison Adventures

It's been an eternity since I've sat down and attempted a blog post.  Time gets away from us, the days are filled with the mundane tasks of life and things we hold as important get pushed aside by busyness. 

2014 was an eventful year for the Morrison's.  We each got a year older, dealt with a few health scares, went on a couple of disaster relief mission trips, enjoyed a great spring break trip to Cincinnati OH with friends, but the highlight of the year was our return to Guatemala and all it entailed.

It was an opportunity we were blessed with by the generosity of someone else.  Zach was able to return to his birthplace and experience life there for a short time.  It was a lot for a 10 year old to take in, but he did so with a servant's heart.  We are anticipating all that God will do in his life as he grows into his faith.

Sam had a great year continuing to recover from his major surgery in August 2013.  He is an A student with a determination unlike any I've known before.  He played soccer in the fall, a major accomplishment for him.  He will be having another major surgery January 29 so please keep him and us in prayer.

Charlie, well, what can I say?  He's Charlie!  He is in his last year at WEE school, which means he'll start Kindergarten this fall.  He adores any kind of sports and will be signing up for his first t-ball season this spring.  Where does the time go?

Jon is still working hard in his own carpentry/construction business.  He spent most of 2014 remodeling a log cabin.  God has blessed is faithfulness and work ethic by providing work every single day since he went out on his own in 2005.  He hopes to obtain his Contractor's license this year.

I am still a part time Nurse at the boys school and in the Stress Lab at AnMed.  I continue to be part of the Praise and Worship at church, but let go of some other responsibilities I had taken on in order to allow me to be Mom/Wife.

2015 promises to be an eventful year as well.  We face challenges we already know are coming and I'm sure they'll be many surprises along the way.  Our goal for the year is to continue to be a Light for others in this world and to follow wherever He leads us...who knows where that may be?!  Stay tuned...
