You can feel it everywhere you go in almost every
conversation, 2016 is going to be different.
As diligent blessed people we don’t walk through
life without a purpose. Even in our later
years it is important that we stay on course and be
that person God intended for us to be.
We have chosen working with wood to be worthy of our
time our efforts and our money. It provides
the perfect outlet for our creative urges needs and
wants and connects us with a worldwide community of
like-minded individuals. But this year will be
different, it will be special. I’m not talking
about “the typical New Year’s resolutions” but
rather your specific plan and a purpose for the next
Although many of us have reached that point in our
lives when we are no longer worried about our
career, or even just making a living, we are still
charged with making a difference. Most of us
have to live through the temptations and mistakes of
our youths to acquire any sort of wisdom at all.
It is incumbent upon all of us to exercise that
wisdom and make a difference regardless of our age.
It begins with our own family, our children, our
grandchildren and other folks we meet along the way
and in many cases, around the world.
Seriously considering the following five questions
will help you find your direction and develop your
specific plan for this very special year:
What three things are most important to me
What three things
are important to my spouse?
What three gifts
(talents, abilities, skill sets) can I share
with others in 2016 to make a difference?
Which three new
skills do I want to learn in 2016 and how am I
going to make that happen? Where? When?
If I am to be all
that God intended me to be in 2016, what three
personal habits am I going to practice which
will help me to be that person?
This year matters more than most. Everyone I know
feels the same way. Do your part prayerfully and
diligently. It is a presidential election year, get
involved and do more than just vote. We are!
In a few days the 2016 show season begins with the
first show in Baltimore, MD. Sweet Janice and I are
prepared and excited about this season, our 10th
on this particular show circuit and our 47th
together. We are looking forward to reconnecting
with so many of you that we see only once each year,
but you are special nonetheless.
I will do my best to keep up with the newsletters
each week no matter how brief because wherever you
go, there you are.
My inspirations for this week’s message follow
Eccl 3:1 To every
thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose
under the heaven:
Rom 8:28 And we
know that all things work together for good to them
that love God, to them who are the called according
to his purpose.
Prov 11:14 Where
no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude
of counsellors there is safety.
Prov 29:2 When the
righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but
when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
I would like to
announce that this year for the first time, Ron
Brown’s Best, LLC will have a monthly sweepstakes
drawing specifically for visitors at the various
shows. You will have to enter at the show in our

have noticed that some items have disappeared from
www.ronbrownsbest.com, in the last week or so. I
hate to admit it, but we cannot keep up with the
demand for certain items and since it is the show
season, we had to remove them temporarily. We will
relist those items and many more when we can fill
your orders in a timely manner.
