Hey Friends, this is Odie reporting from Ohio. This is my last report for 2017. It is hard to believe that this year is almost gone, but today is December 30th! Wow!
When this year began we were in church in Wichita, Kansas praising God for being an On Time God.
2017 has not been any different for us, for God has came through right on time, several times. I am still amazed when I look back over this year. It is impossible for me to adequately thank my God for coming through for me. Many of those times have been documented for you to read here.
2017 has been a great year. I will definitely look back on this year with fondness and great memories. Here are a few highlights of the year for me. It is hard to narrow down the highlights.
Singing at Sea 2017 with my friend Kaylene.
Watching my friends get married and become Mr. and Mrs. Conway.
Attending PFYC Katie and Jacqueline.
Being home for Easter Sunday at Dryden Road Pentecostal Church.
Breaking Ground on the house project.
Watching the foundation being poured.
Papaw Eugene rolling me up the ramp for the first time.
The entire month we spent at HPC this spring is a huge highlight of our year. I am so thankful for my dear friend Taylor Webb. She is a bright spot in my life. It was a privilege to help celebrate her graduation.
Seeing Uncle Scott Morris pull onto the Lazy OD Ranch for the very first time.
Watching the house go up before my eyes. These guys below and many, many others worked so hard to bring the house to life.
Watching the roof go on the house.
Attending Musication Nation 2017 with the Isaacs.
Meeting my cousin Evya Yeary.
Enjoying ice cream with Papaw Danny.
Wires and rumors of wires.

All the surprise visits from the Mayhans. See you on down the road.
Watching Deidre and Ben say "I Do". Mr. and Mrs. Shoemaker, I love and miss you and I can not wait to see you in 2018.
Watching a lot get accomplished on the house project. I am trying to avoid this entire post being full of house pictures, but it has been a big part of the year. I love the little cottage. I am excited to hopefully see it completed in 2018.
Getting to be with my awesome Montana friends is always a special treat.
I enjoyed getting to be with these two miracles in Atwater, California, Elliot and Mason. They are precious and answers to many prayers.
Meeting the triplets was wonderful.
I loved getting to visit Pastor Spencer and our friends at Riverdale.
We capped the year off by being home for Christmas and spending time with family. This was a excitement packed year and I have been blessed.
I could go on and on and on with highlights from 2017, but this post needs to end at some point. May God bless all of our friends that we were blessed to seen this year.
Looking ahead to 2018, I am excited about what next year will hold. I am sure it will have its share of twists and turns, but I am ready for the ride. Thanks for coming along on the journey with us. We appreciate all of you who take time to follow along with us.
