Well, here it is, another new year coming our way. My mother will be 100 years old in February and she is very excited about it. My wife Betty will be (none of your business) years old in June and she's not too thrilled. Perspective. It's all in how you look at it. At my mother's party I'll tell her, "Hey, I'm so thrilled for you and you look great! At Betty's party I'll say, "Hey, I'm so sorry for you, but you look great! Perspective. Betty found a few gray hairs on her head the other day. It concerned her. My mother, whose hair has been completely gray for 50 years found a dark hair on her head last week and was delighted. Perspective. How you look at situations really affects your attitude and what you think about something.
Betty and I have been blessed in the last five years by her recovery from breast cancer. Every day is a blessed day and even though I jest, we are so glad for the time God has given us together. We choose to look at everything through new eyes that God has given us. Eyes that were opened when we first met Him, and eyes that are opening wider everyday as He shows us His great love.
We've been honored to minister God's word for over 40 years now. I could never imagine, that years ago the Lord would reach down to us and cause us to be messengers of His love and grace to a world of chaos. To look at us, you'd never think we were useful, but in God's eyes, he saw possibilities. Perspective. When you look at yourself as God's looks at you, you're something wondrous. The song says, "God don't make no junk!" I am living proof of that and so are you!
I hope you had a joyous time celebrating the Savior's birth and may you have another new year filled with possibilities for the Lord. Thank you for your prayers this year and also your love offerings. Our only means of support for this ministry is you. God bless and we hope to see you soon. Our calendar has been refurbished and will be up next week. Come and see us if we are close by.
In Christ, David and Betty
