Ready for Sweet Sixteen

Happy New Year!!  Well, we have made through and past 2015 and now, it’s time to see what’s in store for 2016.  I pray that you have you all had a great holiday season.

I can say that this year has really been a good one overall.  There have been some trying times but there were definitely more good times than bad.  I was able to do a lot of preaching last year.  That was a real blessing because it was something that I had not expected.  School has been going fairly well.  As of now, I am a sophomore in college.  Talk about an accomplishment.  Schoolwork, being a Dad, being a Minister, and working full-time is one thing that is not for the faint of heart.  To be honest, I didn’t think I had the energy to get all of this done.  When I tell you that this was all because of God’s grace, believe me, it was.  Now, I am ready to do it all over again.

Another thing that 2015 taught me was that I was able to love again.  I really thought that I had lost that gift but, it was there all along.  I just needed someone to give love to.  It was a hard battle to fight since I pride myself in looking at things logically.  Logic had to take a back seat this time otherwise, I would have missed out.  Once again, God did exactly what He set out to do.  Now I am engaged to a woman that really loves me despite my short-comings and in spite of my logical reasoning.  In other words, she wouldn’t take no for an answer and neither would I.

Well, I think that is all for now.  I will talk to you all again, soon…
