2017

First off, I would like to apologize for not writing more on here in the past year. 2017 has been a very busy year for me and my family. I do however want to reiterate that I post daily on my Twitter handle @sammm1777  Please follow me there.

I also want to rededicate my writings on this blog since they have been a great spiritual and creative way for me to reflect on my life(past, present & future).

With that, I always want to give God the Glory for all he has done for me this year, as always and every year. That ultimately is the point of our lives…to give him the glory for everything and in everything, regardless.

Living in Houston, Texas has been a challenge in itself as we have experienced devastation in Hurricane Harvey this year. Thank you Lord that we were mostly spared. We had some roof leaking and still need to get that fixed, but no flooding in our home. I know that now still, many are rebuilding their lives and homes from that Hurricane on August 28th. I still pray for them.

December-It snowed here, keeping on that weather track. I couldn’t believe it! Like a lot of snow, like the whole ground and trees and roofs and everything were totally covered in snow! It was beautiful. We took the kids out early around 7am and had snow ball fights and made snowmen. It was glorious!

My wife and I also took a wonderful trip to Italy and Ireland. Both beautiful countries in their own right and we admired every minute of it.

We also enjoyed the Grand Canyon in a quick, fast and fun impromptu trip.

We hosted SB LI in Houston as well and I got to enjoy the NFL experience here back in February

Can’t forget my Astros winning it all in the World Series against the Dodgers. This was my perfect WS match-up as both my favorite teams met in the fall classic!

My brother-in-law got married (Grant & Amber) in July and we went out to Albuquerque, NM for their wedding. I got my marriage license certificate to marry them. What a blessing it was and how glorious of a wedding it was. Praise God.

Finally got to see Metallica in concert as well and that was very cool! 30 yrs in the making for that!!

My kids both turned 5 and 2 respectively and I love them so much.

My wife and I celebrated 6 years of marriage and what a true blessing she has been to me and my life. Thank God for her everyday & for choosing the right woman to marry.

Thank you 2017, it has been a real great one. Now let’s celebrate this Christmas season basking in God’s beauty and thankful to him for saving us all through his son Jesus Christ!

Blessings!!
