Paul is always in the mood to talk to ANYONE at ANYTIME, Period. He loves Starbucks Coffee drinks, reading his bible, and telling jokes. Paul is also famous for sayings like "that is cleaner than a whistle dipped in Clorox" . Paul is THE MOST SOCIAL young man I have ever met, which makes him Paul.

I absolutely knew it was NOT a go, but little did I know that the Lord was saying "Not Yet" and "Not that way" Today, he said "YES" and "NOW" but His Way.....
We received a call from The Wyndham Vacation Resorts in Nashville that they approved the donation of 300 remodeled Vacation Resort Condos. You see we had a chance to show them what we are all about, brag on our kids, and even the Resort Manger came by a few Saturdays ago to see our unique program first hand, they were impressed with our program and specifically our differently-abled young adults. You see this donation fits perfectly with The Wyndham Vacation Resorts Green Initiatives and the Recycling of their beautifully maintained appliances and Furniture. It makes a BIG dent in the unemployment rate for Special Needs Young Adults here in Davidson and Williamson County. Exactly what are we getting? Get Ready!
- 90 Refrigerators
- 90 Washer Dryers
- 90 Dishwashers
- 90 Microwaves
- 90 Garbage Disposals

So do you think other Hotel Resorts might read the article in the paper and say " We can do that and help special young adults with disabilities" Please pray with me on THAT ONE. I think this is just the beginning....
PS If you are staying in a Hotel soon, PLEASE consider the Wyndham, they have a Heart for Our kids....ALL of OUR Kids.....

Ya know there are times when God brings someone special just for YOU to be a blessing to. YOU KNOW....Folks that Don't Have What YOU do, and out of YOUR abundance you can help them? Well Keith is my Gift. Keith deserves MY very BEST. It is such a privilege to employ Keith and when we found out Keith had NEVER SEEN the ocean or swam in it, we sent him on the vacation of his dreams! ? Click here to see great video of that miracle trip!
Friends chipped in after hearing about our plan, and we sent him to Florida, Beach House, Walking Around Money (as my Dad put it) and a Private Pool. You GOTTA See the Joy on his face! His FIRST Vacation....Wow.
Well THIS year we decided to fulfill another dream for Keith. Keith has NEVER been to Disneyland. WHAT? My family GREW UP at Disney in Anaheim. Our parents would literally drop us OFF for the day in the Magic Kingdom. So, after sharing our "PLAN" for Keith's MOST EXCELLENT VACATION 2009, a certain MOTOWN Music Star said "HEY, Let's fly him down since he has NEVER FLOWN BEFORE" , Then a certain Country STAR said "HEY, I have the Disney V.I.P Passes handled, then while discussing this PLAN with a certain donor named CHUCK, he said "I have the Universal Studios Passes handled", so as we speak, Keith is wearing out DISNEY and Universal Studios ALL EXPENSES PAID, Just like King David did for Mephibosheth.....Just LIKE God's Heart for Keith.... and US.....
Can I Challenge you with something? May I HUMBLY ask that you seek out a Keith in your life that you can bless? Just think if we all had ONE Keith we gave a hand to........what a ripple effect in our world.... Wanna make God SMILE?
