"Hello!" I called, humbly bowing before the FW500

As I clicked the submit button, I wondered if I was ready to be part of such a gifted group. Then I uttered a prayer... "Lord help them to be ready for the likes of this sassy old New Yorker!" :lol:

In these short few weeks FW has impressed and excited me. Each entry and message board (even the banter) I've read, the true character and commitment of FW's members to the Lord has confirmed that this is a group I wanted to join, and my husband Ken agreed.

To me, FW is not just a showcase of fancy footwork and language logistics. It does not appear to be a backdrop just for those that need to be admired. I see teachable spirits, humility, iron sharpening iron, neighbor loving neighbor, and people having FUN! I see a Christian community where Jesus reigns and I do not have to be ashamed of calling myself a member.

We planned to join FW500 after the condo sold, since for months nothing has happened except the decline of prices and our situation. I listed last night with a different agent, a Christian. This morning I felt I needed to take a step of faith by joining NOW and trusting God for the rest. Ken will find out tonight that he's a new member too :!:

Hey there you "sassy old New Yorker!" Stop bowing, and get back to writing. :wink:

Welcome to the 500. I know it always blesses me so much to hear why people felt led to join. May God pour back the blessing to you.

Love, Deb
