Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Ozarks!!
I wanted to be sure and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and let you know how very much I miss all of you!! It's beautiful here in the Ozarks in southwest Missouri but very different from Texas!! We had the most incredible autumn I've ever seen. And with the exception of July 4th and Labor Day, we don't have any traffic in our little lake town. And during the warmer months, we fish as much as we possibly can!! But the winter here so far this year is not exactly what I imagined! In the 8 months since I've been here we've had one of the one of the hottest summers on record, a once in a generation rainfall and now a once in a generation winter storm! The windchill last week during the storm was down to -37 degrees!!! Now that's cold for this little Texan!!
But as always, God is so good!!! I am so enjoying married life and have been blessed with a wonderful husband. Many of you know I had a very klutzy moment with a chef's knife a few weeks before I was married. My hand didn't not quite heal as I had hoped after the surgery so my typing has suffered greatly but is slowly improving! So...I needed to find something completely different than sitting behind a keyboard for 8 hours a day. Well, who knew that at 61 I would start a new career teaching country line dance lessons!!! I teach several classes a week here in my local community. No one else teaches here so it's been very exciting to bring that to our area! And now folks around here just call me the "Dance Lady", and of course Johnny is my DJ during the lessons.Doesn't God have a great sense of humor??!!
I know Rosy is taking wonderful care of the congregation, and with Ralph at the helm for music I know y'all are in good hands!! Just know that I miss you all so very much, and am continually thinking of you and praying for you!
Would love to hear from you! My new email is: email@example.com.
Love, hugs and blessings!!!!
