2008 has been a year of both joy and sadness. We are so thankful to have a loving and faithful God who never leaves us nor forsakes us!
Joys: My sister and brother-in-law welcomed their son Samuel to the world. He is such a little love and I cannot adequately explain in words how much I absolutely adore being his "Tia".
We celebrated our first anniversary at Dana Point and Disneyland!
I performed in How the Other Half Loves at Long Beach Playhouse.
We enjoyed a fabulous vacation to Spain and Paris!
Sadness: On June 11, after a long and courageous battle with cancer, my father passed away. My sister and I had several visits with him during his last months, and an amazing last visit with him, just days before he died. We are so thankful that he got to meet little Sam two or three times before he passed on to Heaven. We love you, Dad!
Exciting News!!! God has opened a door for Hubs to be the Discipleship Pastor at a wonderful church in the Houston area. We are so tickled at the thought that the Lord brought me all the way out to California to meet Hubs, only for him to get a job right back in the Houston area! God really does have a good sense of humor, and we are excited about the blessing of living close to family and so many of our friends! We'll be moving to Houston in a couple of months, and you can rest assured that I'll be documenting it all right here on The Starshine Report!
May the Lord bless you and your family this Christmas season and all throughout 2009!
Happy New Year,
Starshine and Hubs
Love * Loyalty * Lifetime
