Smoothest pond ice ever!

Who says Illinois can't have good ice! I have never seen smoother pond ice in my life. Enjoy it while it lasts!

Time of reflection

Reflecting on the events in CT, I am reminded to ponder the following:

1. Do I treasure each moment that God gives me with my family?
2. How much do I set my affections on things of this earth where sin and satan abound, and where unrighteousness keeps getting worse and worse. 
3. Do I pray for others enough?
4. Do I trust God with my whole heart or am I holding something back?
5. Do bad events strengthen my faith or cause me to doubt?

May God be with everyone involved with this terrible tragedy. May our nation return to its roots and put God back in the public arena, and may we all be brought closer to Him.

Today on the way home from a family reunion that had lots of "adult food", Andrew blurted out "dad, I think I am allergic to everything I don't like!"

Well said, Buzz.  Well said.
