A Look Back...

I found a fun little feature at Sandra's (Diary of a Stay at Home Mom) who found it at Kelli's (There's No Place Like Home). Here's the jist from Kelli:

"With the New Year right around the corner, this is the perfect time for a peek through the past year of blogging. I would love for you to join in with me! Post the first sentence of your first blog post of each month. You can also add a favorite picture from each month."
Sounds like fun, right? So here we go:

It came and it went.


The very first order of business.


Feeling very frustrated today.


Three women's lives intersect in small town Harper's Bay around the mystery of an ancient shipwreck offshore.


Well, yesterday the news came down.


"Better is one day in Your courts, than a thousand elsewhere"


Some interesting facts about Canada's flag to help celebrate Canada's birthday


Hello. And welcome to Friday's Fave Five.


Oi, I'm late with a post today, but better late than never.


Apparently she's got an ear. Or so I'm being told.


In James David Jordan's new thriller, Forsaken, a world-renowned televangelist must choose between his faith and his daughter's life.


Outside my window...the Christmas icicle lights are blowing in the wind.

From my family to yours, wishing you a very Happy New Year!

May all God's best be yours for 2009!

Karen said...

This is a great way to recap the year. Happy New Year, Susanne!

Jen said...

Loved all the pictures and remembered a few of them. Happy new Year!

Barbara H. said...

What a fun look back! I posted the first sentence from each month's posts before I saw Kelli's but didn't think to add pictures.

I do remember your poor hand. Is it totally working right now or have there been long term effects?

Donnetta (momrn2) said...

What a very fun idea! I might have to do that if I can find the time.

Happy New Year Friend!

Grace said...

My post would only include October, November and December. But if you do this next year, it'd be fun. Your list is fun! Since I don't have a list like that, I started this year with a list of blogging prayers for 2009.

Melanie @ This Ain't New York said...

I always enjoy your pictures. Happy New Year!

Chappyswife said...

Hi, Susanne! This worked out great. It really shows some of your best photos of the year and highlights some very big moments in your life. How fun. I remember all of that! :0)

Here's to another great year of blogging!


Linda said...

What a great idea and what an excellent job you did. I love it!
Wishing all of you a blessed New Year.
Thank you so much for your prayers for my Dad.

Carol said...

How fun was that! But the photo of people walking in the flood waters scared me a bit. I don't think that's safe, really. Please tell me that wasn't you.

Happy New Year!

Great recap Susanne! Happy New Year!!

Barb said...

Wow, Susanne, your list is amazing. Amazing how just the first line of the first post each month, combined with the photos, really does recap your year.

I can't believe your poor broken hand happened so early in the year. I remember it so well and it seems like it was just a couple of months ago.

Happy new year to you, sweet friend.

Beck said...

You hurt your arm in MARCH! Good GRIEF, that was a long time ago! Beautiful post from a busy and bittersweet year - I hope that 2009 brings you much joy.

Kelli said...

I'm glad you joined in the fun! What a wonderful look through your past year!
