Here is a new pic of Sam which gives me a good excuse to tell him how proud I am of him. He got Student of the Month in his Geometry class recently and also got the Coach's Award for Waterpolo this season. He's hangin' in there with high school! Way to go Sam! And you are still one of the cutest kids I've ever seen! :)

Okay maybe cute and kid isn't as appropriate as it used to be.

I Love you - MOM

Here is one of Grace after she got her hair done. I've found a new hairdo is good motivation to pose for Mom...

A man I respect and admire...

Pastor Garrison from New Genesis Bible Church in New Orleans spoke tonight at the Harvest Mission meeting on being vaccinated by religion. He commented how many people who go to church have only been vaccinated, they get a little dose of God but not enough to infect them and give then the disease. Just enough to feel religious but not enough to give them dis-ease from sin. But that God wanted to infect us all so much so that we will be contagious in our disease. Speaking from James 1:19-39 - he urged us all to not only be hearers of the word but doers as well.

My kids left full of praise for his preaching style and how they felt like they were interacting with him and how he made the time go by so fast and made everything sound so interesting. He made a huge impression on them. Not only that but when he met them, he looked at them in the eye and spoke to them like they mattered. Asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up and remembered their names. And then there were the hugs. He hugs everyone. An incredible man with an incredible gift from God as a pastor. And a wonderful end to our weekend.

No picture just reaching out for prayer for the hundreds who have lost their homes this week in the fires. My mom had to evacuate today. The fire was on her street. And she was faced with having to decide what to take and what not to take. With fire literally all around them my mom and sister made it out okay. We are hopeful that her home is still standing because her answering machine is picking up. But there are many who will find out in the next couple days that they no longer have a home. And my heart breaks for them.

Sorry for not posting anything recently. Been busy and work and at home.

Hopefully I will have something soon to contribute.

By the previous post of the twins? Scott and Kim had to evacuate from their home too today. They had to leave so fast they didn't have time to take anything with them. They just scooped up their four kids and drove away. So pray for them too.
