Blessing From the Lord!

Yesterday, Mr. Burroughs, my Dad and I were sitting in the new store doing some computer things, and we were talking about how it will be great when the phones come in. Well, two minutes later, a BIG FedEx truck pulled up right in front...and they were our phones!

Huzzah! Lord Willing our Accessories will be coming in soon as well!

Praise God for his Kindness and Steadfast Love.

Store Update

So, God has really been good to us as we are working hard towards opening the store here in Raleigh.

Here is a list in bullet points on what we have so far.

• Building is rented;

• Walls are painted;

• Sales desks are set up;

• Point of sale computers are now in place and operational;

• Displays are up for phones and information;

• Phone inventory is ordered and on the way;

• Phone accessories will Lord Willing be ordered today (18th)

• Exterior sign is up and will Lord Willing be lighted soon.

• TIO accounts are being set up to do bill payments etc.

And I think that is all for now!

Praise God for His Amazing Grace to us and how he is working in my life, and in the lives of my Dad and Mr. Burroughs to bring this together.

Oh, I thought of another one which is really important to me, since it is my project.

• The website is almost setup. The place filler, you can visit here and the actual website which is working, just not completely setup is here:

Dios es Bueno!

Huzzah! A New Year!

As a new year approaches, filled with reflections of the past year and ideas for the new, I wanted to share with you this beautiful hymn from John Newton.

While with ceaseless course the sun
Hasted through the former year
Many souls their race have run
Never more to meet us here:
Fixed in an eternal state
They have done with all below
We a little longer wait,
But how little none can know.

As the winged arrow flies 
Speedily the mark to find,
As the lightning from the skies
Darts and leaves no trace behind,
Swiftly thus our fleeting days
Bear us down life's rapid stream;
Upward, Lord, our spirits raise,
All below is but a dream.

Thanks for mercies past receive;
Pardon of our sins renew;
Teach us henceforth how to live
With eternity in view;
Bless thy Word to young and old;
Fill us with a Saviour's love;
And when life's short tale is told,
May we dwell with thee above.

by John Newton, 1774
