December 2018 Newsletter
"We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is good, because it is good, if bad, because it works in us patience, humility and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country." –C.S. Lewis
Tis the season to be jolly! Are you? I hope so. We just finished counting our blessings and (for many) eating way too much food and yet, the next few weeks will be more of the same - eating, drinking and being merry.
As we close out 2018 I encourage you to “ think in decades, plan in years, work in months, live in days and Celebrate Moments.” Moments are all that we really have and how we live in those moments will determine what the days, months and years ahead will look like.
We are going back to our roots this month - to Pensacola to share a live “Celebration of Life” with the members, volunteers and supporters who have sustained us for the past 16 years. We are excited and yet a bit misty because those of you from other areas will not be there. Just know that you are always with us in spirit. We have met a lot of beautiful souls on this journey and for that we are eternally grateful.
Now some of you will think that this is the Newsletter, no, it is attached. Please take a moment to read it and share with others. As always we welcome your comments and articles of interest for future newsletters. Stay tuned for what God is doing with us in 2019 and beyond which includes published books and speaking opportunities throughout the country in addition to our many empowerment workshops and other services. Do keep us in mind to share with your groups and organizations a message of inspiration and empowerment.
**Please note there is a correction on the dates for “A Call to Prayer”, they are Dec. 15th & 29th.**
May this Christmas Season be one of peace, joy and abundant love. And, as you enter the New Year, do it with a vengeance knowing that you are wonderfully and marvelously made for such a time as this.
