From the Swansons: God Always Provides "New Birth"
Photo right: Bishop and Mrs. James Swanson, Sr. submitted this photo of their granddaughter, Laila Brown.
I'm sure that 2016 was a year in which you-like our family-experienced great disappointments, frustrations, some losses, and even shed many tears of sadness. And yet God was faithful and not only brought us through those hard times but blessed us with many "Glory Sightings," as well.
I invite you to journey through 2017 with the Swanson family fully aware that we will face difficulties but trusting that God will continue to be faithful and trustworthy. My granddaughter Laila is my reminder that God always provides "New Birth" as an opportunity to rewrite the script of our lives.
May 2017 be a new birth, a new start or a greater opportunity for you to serve God.
I leave this word with you:
"GOD 's loyal love couldn't have run out, his merciful love couldn't have dried up. They're created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I'm sticking with GOD (I say it over and over). He's all I've got left" (Lamentations3:22-24MSG).
Have a blessed New Year from James and Delphine Swanson, Sr., our children, their spouses and our grandchildren.
