The newest movie by the makers of "Flywheel," "Facing the Giants," and "Fireproof." The new movie is called "Courageous." You can check out the information on it at the following website: Courageous the Movie I can't wait to see it!

I am so impressed by the way this congregation pulls together in prayer and produces such amazing movies. May God continue to bless them as they endeavor to reach the world with the truths of the Gospel!

Another year passed...

On Monday, I will again have one of those frosted marvels with fire hazards on top (aka, birthday cake). :o)

It's hard to believe another year has gone much seems to just fly right by me. My kids are growing up so quickly. A few more months, and "Harry" will be in high school! And my "baby" will be heading into 6th grade. The past year has been full of wonderful things: trips to see family and friends, new babies added to the family, etc. But there have been the very sad times, too: the loss of loved ones (or helping friends through the loss of their loved ones), medical diagnoses that friends/family received, and the list goes on.

Through it all, though, the one thing that shines through most brightly is God's abiding presence. I am so thankful that He is always faithful. I couldn't rejoice as greatly without Him. I couldn't make it through the tough times without Him. Thank You, Lord, for Your great love to me!

For those who have continued to pray for Fr. Joe, I wanted to give you an update, too. He is greatly improved, and planning to be back "full time" sometime in February or early March. A wonderful bit of news is that we now have an assisting priest on a full-time basis. Fr. Mike came to our parish just last week. For that we are truly thankful!

And in the words of Fr. Mike, I would like to encourage you all to make this your New Year's resolution: Let Jesus show!

God bless...
