Love That Will Not Let Me Go and the Welcome Mat is OUT!

This time last year the thought of spending Christmas with my ‘first’ family was simply not there. Now, as 2017 dawns, I truly feel there is a ‘new beginning’ for me. After being rocked around a bit in 2016, there were times when the ‘natural’ man simply didn’t care. After all, the improbable happened. Yet, I held on to the promise of “Never Alone”. Surrounded by men and women who had mostly given up hope, in one room and four walls, it took effort to stay the least bit positive, but through it all, I knew why. I knew it was the very reason My LORD left the ‘Comforter’. GOD came through in the form of my youngest daughter. She and her husband had prepared a place in their home for her mother, but that didn’t happen. I was the beneficiary and I am blessed, donchaknow, really. 2016 is just a memory and the actions that brought me to this place, at this time, are set in concrete, back there. It’s strange how GOD turns things that could be negative into very positive, joyful experiences. I am now in ‘two’ rooms with three cats, twin angels, daughter, a wonderful son-in-law and Miss MattieT. (My son, who already has everything a man could desire, couvets my Pom and that’s a HOOT!) I feel like a true Texas Aggie…I’ve never been licked and with GOD’s Blessing, that will continue until ‘homeward bound’. Lead On, O King Eternal! Though I may stumble, I still will follow! May this New Year be the best New Beginning of your life! That’s What I Get from My Box of Chocolates. AMEN
