Howdy from Sunny Acres!! Friday, December 17, 2010

Hello everyone!

How are you doing?  Shopping done?  I'm still here in San Luis Obispo at Sunny Acres- except it isn't sunny right now!  It is raining and they expect 3 to 5 inches of rain in the next week!  Wow!  That's a lot even by northern California standards! 

I am helping the owner and founder, Dan DeVaul, with some things around here.  He is applying for a building permit to build a new 14-bedroom home here on the ranch.  It is an old, 72 acre farm that has been in his family for a long time.  Dan reminds me of some people I know up north. 

I thank you for tuning in.  I haven't written much because I have been busy, but also because I am not quite ready to write about everything I have experienced, seen, thought, and/or learned.  I hope to share these thoughts with you all sometime soon.  I have "opened up" in my writing, but not completely.  Remember when I wrote about continuing to see the importance of listening more than talking?  Well, that continues............  Right now it feels like writing is a form of talking- know what I mean? 

I hope that you are all getting ready to enjoy Christmas.  I don't think that a lot of us completely understand how blessed we are when we really believe in Jesus Christ and put our whole faith in Him.  It is difficult to appreciate this blessing until you are in a place where you know He isn't- then you really miss Him.  The Rock is necessary.  Our weakness is where His strength shines...............

Please keep Sunny Acres in your prayers.  Please continue to keep the Coder kids in your prayers too.  I hope that what I did helped them.  Please also pray for Bob and Joyce Coder, and also for Will Blackwell, the young man who is going down to live in Honduras to help them out.  Thank you.

God bless us,
