We welcomed a new son-in-law into our family. Joel and Jill are happy in Daegu, South Korea. Of course, we wish they lived near us, but we still keep in close touch. Attending their July wedding meant we were privileged to visit South Korea, a memorable adventure made more special by Joel’s gracious family.
Our younger daughter, Ann, began her senior year in the last step of 13 years of Christian primary and secondary education. She has already been accepted by both colleges where she applied, and as of this writing, is leaning heavily toward attending Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
On a sad note, like Steve Laube’s family, we also lost our beloved cat this year. We adopted Dixie Belle from a shelter when she was reported to be five or six years old, meaning she was at least 21 when she passed away. She was a wonderful cat and we miss her.
My husband, John, and I are grateful for God’s perfect provision us. John has been working as a Navy civilian for 31 years. I am privileged to be a part of The Steve Laube Agency, where I continue to work with awesome editors and publishers, and gifted authors whose talent and sweet spirits have enabled us to gain excellent contracts. I thank the Lord every day that He sees fit to use me as a vessel, and am grateful for the Lord’s provision for CBA. We don’t live in easy times, but He is good.
May your 2013 be all you could ever want!
