An Amazing Group of friends

I lead an amazing group of people at our church!

Last night, we hosted and provided a Benefit Dinner to a family whose little girl had a brain aneurysm and is in Boston in rehab. We provided a great meal, lots of love and friendship to those who attended, and everyone left feeling like we make a huge difference in people's lives.

This is what it's all about!

Mother's Day

Today was a good day for me, both at church and with my family. And while I missed my Mom a lot, I know she is with God and is safe from the disease that took here life.

I traveled with Dad to visit the family cemetery plot. It was a special moment. I want to pass these things on to my kids so they will have them in their memory banks not to be forgotten after I am gone.

Good talk with my brother tonight, too. God has good things in store for him!!!

What a Difference a Year Makes

I am grateful to God for His many blessings on my life and ministry. This one stands out today:

One year ago, the church I serve averaged 56 in average attendance. One year later, we averged 97.

To God be the Glory!

A Day in Lake Placid

Today we decided to take a day off and drive to Lake Placid, NY, to enjoy a new place I'd not been to before.

We walked the street (!), browsed her shops, enjoyed a treat at Starbuck's, and simply enjoyed taking time away from the rush to enjoy each other's company.

Even after 29 years of marriage, we still look forward to walking hand-in-hand together and communicating about the things that matter to us.

I was most impressed with the granduaur of these Adirondack Mountains. All the way up our climb, our ears popped, reminding us that we're not in Nova Scotia anymore!

Today was a great experience and one I'll remember for a while.
