Welcome to 2012

Happy New Year to our family and friends.

We ended 2011 with a drive to Carrizo Springs, TX.  It was a great day with the sun shining and clear blue skies.  We met up with Rex K. at HEB and then followed him out to where their gate guard duties has taken them for the next four months or so.  It was fun to visit with Rex and Shirley and see where they will be working for the next little while.  One of the reasons we went out there was to hear about "gate guarding" as we are thinking that is something we may like to do in a couple of years.  In the three hours we were there they probably had 8 - 10 people in/out of the gate.

We left there about 4:30 and went the round about way to get back to D'Hanis...traveling through Big Well and then stopping for dinner at Brush Country Steakhouse.  It was a very relaxing time of thinking about the past year.  We cannot say often enough how blessed we have been and the many ways God has provided for us.  We are so thankful for our many friends who have encouraged us along this journey.  Yes we have had some deep valley's to climb out of this year but also some super duper mountain top experiences.  And we talked about 2012 and what it holds for us: a trip home to Blaine & Molalla the end of March, some more exploring of the Texas countryside, some remodeling to the motor home and of course spending time  with friends and sharing God's love with others.  After dinner we made our way back to D'Hanis through Yancey and Hondo.  Admiring the Christmas lights that were still shining in the different towns.

We arrived back to the motor home around 8 p.m. and had a quiet rest of the evening.  A fun and relaxing day to usher out 2011 and welcome 2011.  Not sure what today will hold for us.  We are thinking of maybe going up to Medina Lake but with the blustery winds that we are experiencing right now we may just hunker down in the motor home and spend the day just reading, watching movies and relaxing.

So with that we want to wish you a Happy New Year! and may this year may you see God's blessing's in your life!
