moving fast...

Well with all the studying I have done and the work I have done, things are happening fast...

I go through my baptism and ordination in February. I am also now buying a brand new home for my wife(s) and family.

We studied several floor plans and have decided that a wonderful 5 bedroom plan is the way we will go. There are 2 master bedrooms and enough kid room for the flock.

Business has been good enough and it will be close enough to my wife's sole surviving parent for her to provide the care required to keep parent out of a nursing home.

Additionally, I am opening a second office. This is ALSO good news. I am still working very hard, but at least with good business, we are moving ahead in a fiscally responsible manner.

Maybe, JUST MAYBE God cut me a break as a reward for the faith I have and the adversity I have survived? I do not know, but for now, I take a moment to say 'Thank you God. I am truly grateful!'

We are truly blessed.

Contemplation and Decisions...

Well the journey and the studies have been long. I am making my trip into the Mormon faith this year. I have studied. I have prayed. I have talked with my wife and children. I am headed for my baptism.

I guess it has been a while since I posted. Between excessive work, family crisis and all it just got back-burnered.

WOW. This is good news. My wife and I are expecting twins!

I cannot be happier than I am now. God is trying to heal the wounds in my life. I am sure of that now. I wish the wounds had never happened, but I suppose that these wounds are what make us what he truly wants us to be. Since the horrid death of my son in 1999 I have never been the same. I fight to not be cynical and to focus on the positives.

Business has picked up which is good. I have, due to this, had less family time.

I barely had a Christmas. What I had, was good. I spent it with my wife and children.

It is odd how things change in your life. I am on a path that feels right. I feel moving forward will be a time of joy, healing and happiness.

Hope you all had a good holiday. I know I did.
