Well, Friends, I am off and running. (Should I say crawling?) Today, I received all of the necessary documents and such from the State of Virginia Corporation Commission granting my wife and myself a charter for our new business. The company name is Glenvar Property Management LLC. It will still take a lot more paper filing and time for us to open our doors for business. I ordered some stationary and business cards today as well. As some of you already know, for the past year I have been remodeling the shop, getting ready for this. I really have just been waiting for “God” to put the final touches on clearing up my health issues and putting His priority’s in my mind as “He wants them!” Not how I wanted them. Things really seem to be taking off nicely with His guidance. I am starting to really look for a work truck and someone good to put in it. We are going to be operating along as a plumbing repair and remodeling service to start with and branching out to kind of a do it all remodeling and repair service down the road. Up-dates and possibly, new photos of the shop and office are possible in the coming weeks. Wish us luck!
May God Bless! And thanks to all of my friends here at LJ’s for your prayers and well wishes. They have worked!

I’ll not repeat it all, just the last line of an old Irish toast, “and may God hold you in the palm of his hand.”
I wish you good fortune and look forward to progress reports.
