WHERE HAS 2015 GONE ?
I would like to thank everyone that reads New York State of Mind. You are what keeps me going. Also enjoy the comments and questions that you leave - it helps Jean, Elmer, Anna and all - what they should tell in posts. What you are interested in. They all do this for nothing. They are not paid. They do it because they want to not because they have to.
Want to thank all of you that donate pictures, posts, questions and more. What you have is interesting on New York State of Mind, too. It shows us about other places not just New York State. So if you have pictures or a post you would like on here - let me know. If you don't want you name on here, I won't put it on.
Also want to thank you all for helping me pay for getting my car repaired. The garage was paid off this month !!!! Just have to make two more payments and the loan that my friend gave me will be done. I can not thank you enough for all that you did for me.
Thank you for prayers and thoughts through out this year. They were really needed and appreciated, more than you know. You have prayed for me through some hard times last year. Thank you, just doesn't seem enough.
Also, I want to thank Jean, Elmer, Anna, Grandmother Olive, Sarah, Bishop Eli, Bishop Joseph, Emma and more. They have always come up with posts. If I couldn't get one who was suppose to post, I could always get another to fill in. As I said, they are not paid. They can come and go if they want, but they stay on. Sometimes things come up, where someone else has to take over, but they are here when they can be.
They also do things for me that have nothing to do with New York State of Mind. Anna is making me outfits to wear to any Amish or Old Order Mennonite religious service. I can't count the meals I have eaten at Jean's house, Elmer and Anna's house, Bishop Joseph's house and Bishop Eli's house. Never have I left any of these houses empty handed. Always get a canned food, cookies, cake, pie or something I especially liked to eat that they made for me.
I can always turn to anyone of them for advice or prayers. They are always willing to talk with me. They are always to give advice to me. They are always praying for me, as you are.
I thank the Lord for keeping this going all these years. Never thought that we would still be on this long. He is the one that gives me the strength and wisdom to keep going.
As I said, Bishop Eli will have a message on Thursday.
I wish you a very Happy New Year.
