The desire to own a music store and a custom guitar shop was birthed out of a project that my son Jacob and I started when he was only 14. He was a bass player and wanted something better than the P bass that he was playing at the time. When we weighed his taste in instruments against my budget, we had to compromise. We decided to build a custom bass ourselves. Although we had no experience in this area, the project went very well. The bass was beautiful, and we became much closer. We decided then that someday we would have our own music store with a custom guitar shop. “Someday” turned out to be three years later, which was much longer than Jacob hoped for, but much sooner than I could have possibly imagined.
I acknowledge and thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for the work that he has done in our lives. He has taught us that where we have lack, He has abundance. Where we have no way, He is able to make a way. He is faithful in spite of all our shortcomings. Without the Lord, there would be no joyful noise.
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
Serve the LORD with gladness:
Come before His presence with singing.
Know ye that the LORD, He is God:
It is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
and into His courts with praise:
Be thankful unto Him,
and bless His name.
For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting;
and His truth endureth to all generations.
