New Year’s Resolutions

We pray you had a blessed Christmas and celebrated Christ’s birthday. With Christmas celebrations coming to a close, a New Year is here again.

Here are some suggestions for how to spend our time in 2017.

  1. Spend some quiet time with God, thanking Him for all our blessings.
  2. Spend some extra time with your family. Most family members would rather have you spend time with them than spend money on them.
  3. Do something to help someone in need. Your church and many charities including Texas Scottish Rite Hospital can use your help. The smiles on those children’s faces when TAA does the auction at Scottish Rite in Dallas is something you will never forget. Put it on your calendar for December to help pack shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Our crew from Kaddatz Auctioneering is in the photo.

We lost a friend when Charles Cass went to be with the Lord. Charles served in various leadership positions with the TAA including TAA President. He was one of the founders of the Fellowship of Christian Auctioneers International (FCAI). He worked to get tax exemptions for FCAI. He & his son Greg designed the FCAI logo that we use today. I participated in the memorial service.

We lost another friend when Dudley Althaus went to be with the Lord. Dudley served the TAA in many leadership capacities including TAA president. He was in the TAA Hall of Fame. He served as president of the National Auctioneers Association.

Christ Comforts His Disciples In John 14

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
