I hope the blessings have come to you as they have for me this year I have been woodworking for 25 years or more and from 2002 I have been self employed, well this year has been the so far the best year of the career. I have never had as much woodworking lined up ahead of me. A back log of 4 to 6 weeks , I often stop and thank God for the talent and knowledge I have been given, and the customers too.

It has been a fast paced year, taking care of my Aunt, keeping up with all the house hold things, as all you should know that takes up lots of your day. With that it has made the time go by even faster. Before my Mother passed away, she said that the older you get the time goes by faster and faster. I didn’t believe her then, but after experiencing it this year , I do now.!

Knowing that things can pass by as fast, like time ! We need to take a deep breath of air and thank the one responsible. God ! Not only for the breath of air you just took in, but the every Day he he gives us, along with the sacrifice of life he gave. In your fast pace of life we all seem to forget that we have a purpose for being here on Earth. And it’s not to serve ourselves and our needs. So next time you take a breath of air and think you haven’t been doing it right.Turn and thank the one that made it possible for you ! GOD…
