In 2010 we also changed churches and strengthened our family relationship with God, it was one of the best moves we have ever made and are so thankful that God showed us the way to our new Church home. We have found many wonderful friends there and really feel at home and have been welcomed with open arms, in this new year coming 2011, we look forward to furthering our Walk with our Lord as a family and letting him lead us on our next adventures.
God Bless you all as you enter a New Year with a Fresh Slate full of endless opportunities and may you be blessed as much as we have been and continue to be.
