Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Well, Christmas is over. Presents are unwrapped, family visited and getting for a new year.

My friend Scott had his eye surgery and is on road to recovery. My grandson is still needing prayers and will need them for months to come. He is a strong little guy.

This is the time of year that I reflect about the past year - the good, the bad and the indifferent. The things that I accomplished, the things I did not accomplish and works in progress. It is also the time that I will make my goals for 2011.

We have so much to be thankful for. As long as we keep our eyes on God then we will be able to accomplish the task. I did not say it would be easy, but the task can be done. I hope all of you have your eyes on God and that you are able to accomplish your goals for this next year. May it be full of blessings and goodwill. May we all pass the tests that we create. And may we all recongize the opportunties that are presented to us.

Christmas season

Well I missed posting at Thanksgiving, so will get a head start on Christmas. Can't believe that it is here already! AN exciting time of year.

I now weigh about 138 pounds and holding. Still having numbness in fingers and tingling in toes ,salt taste in my mouth and ringing in my ears. But my energy is good and spirits are pretty good. Still have bad days but fewer than before. I have so much to be thankful for. I have friends who are going through cancer as I write this today. Scott from San Angelo is in Boston for treatment of cancer behind his eye. Please say a special prayer for this man. He has a wife and children (under 12) and is going to need all the support he can get over the next few months.

But you know God has a way of using us. Every day I seem to be helping folks that need something, whether it is a few dollars or a listening ear or words of encouragement. Is that what we are supposed to do, help each other. In todays time, everyone has forgotten about slowing down and helping others. It's sad that some only do it at Christmas. I think God wants us to do this 24/7! It doesn't have to be much. I find myself at peace after these good deeds. I only hope the benefactor gets as much comfort as I do.

Family is all coming home so will not be on road much. I plan on enjoying these holidays with my wife, kids and grandkids and friends.

Life is always throwing a curve at us. Are we going to just stop because it is not what we want or are we going to continue on and do the good things God wants from us. Each of us has a special gift. Are you using yours? I know I don't use mine enough. A good new year resolution.

Merry Christmas everyone.....May God Bless each of you......
