November is almost over, but before it passes, I just thought it a nice idea to go back a few Novembers and commemorate some of the great occurrences in lives of the Goens:
- Three Novembers ago James and I took our first trip together to Indiana to visit his grandma for Thanksgiving. It was the first time I met his parents, grandparents or extended family and the only time in my living memory that I have driven from Florida to Indiana.
- Two Novembers ago James and I were interviewed for a podcast for “Musicianairies” about our experiences in a house church we were a part of in Gainesville, Florida. Stephan, who was interviewing us, hosts this podcast for musicians around the country and is fond of the idea of the”unleadership” for worship leaders. A copy of that interview is linked to the title of this post.
- Two Novembers ago was also monumental for James and I as a couple because it was on Thanksgiving of 2006 that we were engaged to be married. He took me to a movie after dinner and then to a dock near Ft. Walton Beach, Florida and asked me to stand with him in this life.
- Last November held importance of its own as it hosted our first Thanksgiving as a married couple and a trip to Ohio to visit my grandparents.
