wow....another year has come and gone....this past year has been a real roller coaster for us....and hope the next year will be better.....we're getting more commercial calls which is a good thing..two weeks ago we rekeyed a office building and today, Alan is helping a bar owner secure his bar front door....plus this week we put an estimate in to re key 17 tract houses.....hope we hear back on that one.We also picked up another realtor here in our area............
The most blessing this past year was the birth of our beautiful grandson, of course....with all the joys a new life can bring...and the deep sadness of losing my Mother in law ( Alan's mom).
I am sure you and your family have experienced something similar this last year...ups and downs...health problems, financial difficulty, people problems of this or that....God has never promised us a life free of problems....in fact, Jesus said that in the world we would have problems....but that He has overcome the world...(John 16:33)..
As we look forward to 2012....I thought today's Bible verse was so appropriate...
“This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 NIV
In whatever place you find yourself..God is there....I am asking him to make a way in the wilderness for us..get into the habit of reading His Word ..join with me this next year and sign up for the Gateway Bible Reading plan...you will be amazed to see what God will do!
From our family to yours....Happy 2012!!!!
