Hey all! I'm finally back after some craziness around here. We had a nasty ice storm on Thursday night which caused us to lose power about 1 am until 8 pm the next day. Thankfully, we have a wood burning stove on our four-seasons porch. So, we spent all day Friday hanging out by the fire. Saturday was full with practice for the dramas on Sunday morning, then to McLean for 2 basketball games and then our daughter's birthday party.

Sunday, oh how wonderful Sunday was. Our pastors always do an amazing job of proclaiming Christ to the world, but yesterday was even more amazing. Their desire for others to see Christ was apparent as they planned and prepared for our Christmas outreach yesterday. God has blessed our church with many gift-filled people who are so very willing to serve and I am thankful for each one of them. God's presence is so apparent there and I'm so glad to be a part of it all. It was a touching and moving experience. Praise God! Check out the website at

As if that wasn't good enough, we just happen to run into some really great friends at a restaurant after church and had a wonderful time visiting with them. Our plan was to then run to Bloomington to pick up our last Christmas gift but when my husband decided that we should stay home, I was excited to take a long afternoon nap. Mmmm mmmmm GOOD!

Hope your weekend was good too!

Have a great day
Living fearlessly in Christ
