Colorado Springs Realtor - Cherise's Blog: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2013

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2013

“…And after the fire came a gentle whisper.” 1Kings 19:12b NIV

Dear Beloved Family, Friends, and Clients: This year has been a year of epic trials and incredible victories for so many of you. Of tears and laughter. Of loss and renewed hope. Thank you for the many who inquired about how we were doing throughout and after the Waldo Canyon Fire. Honestly, it has made us stronger and more resolved than ever to keep forging ahead. As I had mentioned during the height of the flames “the fire may consume my things but not my soul.” With our office and home intact, all I can say is that it is like one escaping the flames. For us, the fire was a symbol of the entire year … beauty comes from ashes.

I have come to many conclusions as 2012 draws to an end. The most powerful finale also boasts the subtlest reminder: to remember to love one another. We hope that this Christmas and New Year find your lives touched and blessed by the great love of God and by those around you. We are so grateful for the best year of real estate since 2008, and thank you for being an integral part of our journey. Without you, there would be no real estate story.

With Gratitude, Cherise Selley

It's the little things in life....if more of us subscribed to the philosophy of "remembering to love one another" this world would be a drastically different place.  Best wishes to you for a prosperous 2013.

Cherise and Gordon,

Well said.  There were many things to be thankful for in 2012 despite the horrors.  Cherise,  congratulations on taking care of so many people with their home sales/purchases this last year.  Gordon- congrats on finishing the book.  That was a big accomplishment. 

Grace and Peace,
