Greetings Everyone,

It is great to be back in a place where I can take time to share with you all again.  Life has been busy for us as I am sure it has been busy for all of you

Life is such an interesting concept, as the past 3 months or so have come and gone I have begun to ponder  the word LIFE.  What defines life, is it our religion or our actions? Is it the example we set or receive from others or is it our thoughts? All interesting questions...

I believe that there are many times when we ask ourselves these very questions; often in times of struggle, change and when we know little about the path ahead. Hence, most likely the reason why the word LIFE has been on my mind lately.

Change came when our lovely daughter was born, it came when I was offered a job in Arizona and it came when I moved my family here after accepting the opportunity given me. These are all good changes and I am quite happy with where we are. Yet, this concept of LIFE is still very much on my mind.

We have basically started over again with our life in Arizona, while we've not been here very long this realization is here.  Where our friends and extended family have been left behind, we will find many additions to them here in Tucson. God will teach us new things about ourselves and the calling he has placed upon us as a family and as individuals. LIFE will never be the same and that isn't a bad thing.

In the midst of all these thoughts the LORD has given me a solemn promise in the scriptures.This promise came from a very unexpected place and has made a wonderful addition to my life verse collection... 

"You will live in joy and peace.The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands!  Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow. Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up. These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name; they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love."  Isa. 55:12-13

The entire chapter is a beautiful testament to this LIFE we have and  I am extremely excited about what lies ahead. Look for more on this topic of LIFE in the days ahead. You can start by reading 1st John 1:1-4.

Thanks again for visiting "The Gathering Room"

Stand Strong and continue to believe the teachings given to you

(2 Thes. 2:15b NCV),
