Getting a little nip in 2024

It's probably the most stated statement of all time, but wow 
time really does fly....
It's hard to believe 2024 is here!!!!
It has been a year of great highs and lows.  What is your favorite memory  from 2023? Would you want to live through 2023 again?

This year at JOY, our focus will will be growth...every kind.
      Our dad (Paul Boise) loved to plant, tend to his apple trees and grape arbor.  It was a life long work.
He would very carefully select the branches, even the beautiful foliage that needed taken off because it would drain precious nutrients the roots needed for fruit to be produced.  God does the same thing in our lives.  He is always working on  what needs nipped off.  Spiritual growth comes from learning to trust God when we have loss and look to Him and in His Word for comfort and understanding. 
Hey, side note, getting nipped hurts....
but He does it so we can yield a better fruit and grow spiritually.  

I love you,
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
