The 29th Year

"I know the plans I have for you says the Lord. Plans for you to prosper. Plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

The above scripture was one that came to mind last night as I was thinking of my favorite scripture. It's so easy to forget that God has everything under control when life is uncertain, isn't it? It's so easy to fret and worry over the big things, or even the little things, isn't it? It is for me at least. But time and time again there is God, standing patiently, waiting for me to trust Him, to let go.

Today marks the start of my 29th year. So far it's looking as though this will be the best one yet! This morning I woke up next to the most amazing, Godly man, my husband. I picked up a fresh produce box on my front porch. I then proceeded to make the most delicious green smoothie ever! I then headed off to my day job.... substitute teaching.

At about 9am, the email arrived in my inbox that I had been waiting for; a job offer! Starting next school year I will be teaching at a local private Christian High School and I can not wait! What's so amazing is that I will be the second Mrs. Dunlap teaching there. Yes, I am following in my mother-in-law's footsteps!

What more could I have ever wished for on the day marking the start of my 29th year?

Here's to the best year yet!


  1. Hallelujah!!! I'm thrilled and blessed for you. Happy, happy birthday blessing to you!

  2. Praising the Lord with you, Stephanie! All things DO work for good to those who love the Lord Jesus Christ and are living according to His purposes. Congratulations!
