So many times I have prayer requests, but I want to give God the glory with a Praise! Most of you know that Pat and I started a new business, Clear Choice of Fort Worth, a residential window replacement business, in September. Well this month Clear Choice Fort Worth is ranked number five among all 150 plus stores around the country. Wow! I am so proud of Pat. His 12 hour days are starting to pay off! This weekend he is participating in the Fort Worth Home and Garden Show, so hopefully that will be more exposure for Clear Choice! Stop by if you are at the home show.
G plays in Abilene tomorrow night. That trip is over two hours. When Abilene was here right after Christmas, Burleson beat them. Garrett's picture (shooting) made the local paper a week ago. The new high school G will be attending next year has named the color and mascot. The Centennial Spartans who will be silver, blue and black. Not too bad!
This weekend was so fun! My friend and author, Becky TIrabassi from California flew into DFW to speak in Tyler about Prayer and her new book at Central Baptist Church in Tyler. I picked her and another friend, Brenda, from the airport and off we went. Brenda and I worked her book sales. She is such a firecracker! Her book, "Let Prayer Change Your Life" literally changed my life and my prayer life when I bought it in 1995. So, anytime I can hang out with her, I get rejuvenated and encouraged to persevere in my walk and prayer life. Check out her webite: Becky gave me and Brenda PJ's. So we hung out in the hotel room with all three of us wearing our matching PJ's. They were so appropriate as they had X's and O's all over them!

Hope you have a great week! Reach out to help or encourage someone this week.

Happy New Year!

Well I am back! I hope to be permanently back to join the blogging world! I truly miss blogging and my blogging friends! I know a few friends who took a break from blogging for a bit (Meg) and are back too!
Christmas came and went. It was good! We traveled to OKC to my sister's and we had to tackle ice on the road on the day after Christmas. It was quite treacherous! Pat had a birthday on New Year's Eve and we spent it the ranch, just he and I. The kids were doing their on thing. 2009 was quite a year. A lot of change, but growth was seen in 2009. God has been so good to The Easterlings and we give Him all of the glory. 2010 is a year of "Expectancy" as we see what God has for our future.
Clear Choice of Fort Worth, our new business, is going strong. November was a great month. We are both excited. Pat is putting in 12 hour days, but has thoroughly enjoyed it. My best friend, Laura, has been working for him and she is such an asset to Clear Choice. Clear Choice is a residential replacement company. I love the story that Pat shared with me the other day. This lady called and said that she wanted to talk to him about getting information for she and her son. Pat gave his best sales spill and after he was finished she said "I don't want windows, I want dentures!" Clear Choice is a name of a denture place here in the metroplex. That cracked me up!
The house is still on the market. I will say that has been quite frustrating at times. Yes, it is great to come home to a "showable" house, but hard to keep it clean during the week. I have now been at my job for seven months. Wow has time gone by so fast! I absolutely love my job and thankful comes out of my mouth whenever I talk about it! To be able to be paid to do what you would do for free is an amazing feeling. It was quite an adjustment at first, but now is feeling very normal.
Second semester has begun for G. Sis and Bubba start back to college in a few days. Elizabeth will graduate after the summer semester. Bubba is taking some classes at the local community college. Our kids make us so blessed Pat and I are.
Well here is a summary of what is going on with us. Hope to post some new pictures soon.

Blogger friends! Thanks for stopping by. I will be stopping over at your blog soon!
