Merry Christmas and a Crazy New Year – My First Prayer Request of 2015

I have come to find that all of the leftover craziness of 2014 has somehow followed me into the new year. Such a lot of craziness, in fact, that a journal post to bring everybody up to date has been in the works since October! But the chaos has just piled up on top of itself over and over again, growing to the point that I suspect it may fill a series of blog posts. I simply have so much I need to share with you! Just not right now… Rather, today I bring you my first prayer request of 2015.

I Believe in Miracles!- A Journal Post

So. Are you psyched? Because guess what… I am TOTALLY psyched! Yesterday was a party over here at the Frey household. Isn’t it always a party, though? On this day in particular, however, we celebrated three exciting occasions. April 17th is one of my favorite days ever, purely because it is my big sister Krista’s birthday! She is a lovely girl after all, one of the supreme blessings in my life!

In 1991, the 17th of April was almost certain to be doubly special, as yours truly was expected to enter the scene on that very date. But it will come as no surprise to you that even then I had a mind of my own. To build suspense, I opted to be “fashionably late” and refrained from making my grand premiere until April the 25th. Additionally I am a pretty fair sharer now that I have had time to mature a bit, but honestly, it was probably best for all involved that I had my own special day when I was a tiny moppet.
