The New Year is here

We had a call about 4 pm last night from a widowed gentleman who goes to our church (he's only 88 yrs. old). Ed ask if Willie & I would like to go out with himself & 2 other widowers. I said sure. Ed is leaving Sunday to go to Jordan and home school some missionary children for 6 months (should be interesting for all). So we had dinner with Ed, Dick (also widowed), the pastor (whose wife is away), Gary (whose wife is away), and Dick's daughter. It was a good time and I'm glad we were remembered and offered the opportunity to go out.

Yes Pastor Bruce, we thought of you & GFC last night and the fun game party you were having. I think this year it would have been too much for me...........but I enjoyed reading your blog about it.

Today I invited a number of my high school classmates over. Out of the 45 of us I think there are close to 15 of us that live here in the valley. We were only able to get 5 of us together (lack of notice and decision to do it). But we had a good time together talking about years ago & also everything that has gone on since we graduated 40 1/2 years ago. It was good.

Happy New Year to each of you.

Hi Wanda, I think about you often. You have had a great deal of sadness and hardship in your life but still you keep your faith strong. You are an inspiration to your family and friends. We have received over 30 inches of snow so far this season and with the wind and frigid temperatures, the snow will be moved many times before spring hits Minnesota. Best wishes and God's Blessings to you in 2009. Love, Carol Huesman

Thank you Carol. I do believe that God does guide & direct. I also believe that you can allow things that happen to you to either make you bitter & angry ------- or you can sincerely believe that God is in this and He will be there. He has been for me.

I'm glad I'm not in Minnesota that's for sure. Wolf Creek has over 100 inches now. We have about 7 inches still on the ground here south of Monte. I'm looking forward to Spring!! I covet your prayers.
