Well….It is good to be back.  I didn’t realize it had been so long since I last posted.  I have been really busy over the last few days.  Life has thrown me some difficult situations lately.  Our business and industry is in a very volatile period of time right now.  Reimbursements and insurance contracts are changing which creates the need to reevaluate and make process changes internally to remain viable in the future.  My youngest son, Barron, has also been struggling to fight off a bug that has caused him to run a high fever for the last 3 days.  My heart hurts for him even now as I listen to him groan in his bed.  IT IS TOUGH WHEN YOU HAVE A LITTLE ONE SICK!!!

Tonight, I sit here struggling to fight back the temptation to be ungrateful to God for all He has done for me.  Life’s difficulties have a way of bearing in on me, causing me to lose focus….  As I sit here and reflect, I notice that the daily struggles I mentioned above have tested my perseverance.  These problems have dominated my thoughts and exhausted my energies.  I sit here tonight realizing that I must rise above this simplistic, earthly, mentality and be thankful to the God who made all and is in control of all. 

Colossians 3:15- “And let the PEACE of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be THANKFUL.”
