He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

A Year with the LORD





A year has passed
  Which held changes
    We never could have imagined

Nor could we have
  Gotten through the challenges
    On our own wisdom and strength

At every turn
  God met us
    With just what was needed

Before we could even ask
   Or know what to pray
    God directed our steps and met our needs

At times it seems surreal
  I’m sure I’ll wake up
    From this dream

But another day dawns
  Here I am
    In a new place we call home

September 6th, marked our one year anniversary when we left our family, friends, church and home in southern California and moved 1,500 miles to Texas. 

In so many respects it’s been an amazing year.  Especially when we look back and see God’s faithfulness and help at every turn. 

We are most grateful to God and for our family and friends who supported and prayed for us as the Lord moved us from the place we called home for many years.

Thank you Ceil! Texas is truly feeling more like home. We recently returned from a vacation and when we flew in it was wonderful to see the Dallas area come into view as was the drive home! Praise God that He helps us in our time of need and gives us what we need, even when we don't know what it is we need.
