What I Read Today;

1 Thessalonians 5; Acts 28; Malachi 4; Deuteronomy 34

Well, another year is in the books.

2019 has been quite a year.

We started the year with Cara needing surgery and making a speedy recovery.

We then spent Easter with our families.

In May, we watched our youngest daughter Briana graduate from college, and shortly after that, start her first teaching job.

In July, we spent the fourth of July with my oldest daughter Megan and her family.

In October, Briana got married.

In August, we both turned 54, and in November, we celebrated 35 years together.


We went through health scares with Cara’s Mom and my Dad.

In the midst of all this, I started the process of becoming a candidate for ministry.  I’ll know in January,  if they’ll have me and if the Lord is leading me that way.

It’s been quite a year.  Each day God has been faithful and gracious.  It’s incredible when you look back at how incredibly blessed you’ve been.  A year like this one doesn’t happen often.  However, you can’t help but be humbled by the blessings that God has given you when you sit and look back.

I hope that you were as blessed in 2019 as I was.  I hope that 2020 brings you much happiness and blessing and that your faith in our glorious Savior is strengthened each day!

Thanks to all of you who have followed my site, put up with my grammar and spelling errors, I find them after the fact, and they drive me nuts. I really appreciate all of the times when someone has “liked” my posts and left comments.  I wish I could have responded to each one of them.

I’ll leave you with this as one year ends and a new year begins:

1 Thessalonians 5:11, “Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing.” NRSV
