Happy New Year – An Exciting Ending and A New Beginning

Sharing is caring!

Happy New Year - We ended and began the year with our small town main street under water and that changed our plans. But we're livin' the adventure.

We live in Eureka, MO. You may have heard about us in the news this week. Our small town is under water.

We’ve experienced flooding before in the St. Louis area, (We are very thankful that our homes have always been on high ground.) but this one has been record breaking. Major highways have been closed and families are staying close to home if possible.

Our daughter and grandson stayed to visit for a few days after Christmas. They were planning to take the train home on Wednesday. But… the train between St. Louis and Kansas City is called the River Run.

Yep. No trains for now.

So, they stayed and we played. Grandma moments trump writing every time.

Please continue to pray for the many people who are struggling as a result of the storms and floods that have touched the Midwest this past week.

I originally intended to fill you in on my plans for 2016 here at CMB. I’m excited! I started working on this back in September.

No resolutions this year. No word for the year.

Something bigger. Something I’m praying will have an impact on my faith, and by God’s grace will bless yours as well.

Please come back on Monday, when I’ll introduce the long (for me) anticipated adventure.

Until then…

Happy New Year!

I’m praying your 2016 overflows with the best blessings 
God has to give. 

Now it’s time for…
