Lord give me an open mind, a pure heart, and a humble spirit. Fill me with a passion to seek you in the quiet places where no one is impressed with my abilities, my religiousness, or my righteousness. Help me to see Your smile as I sense Your presence, serve Your will, and seek Your Son - the One who saves me and who I long to be like. May I be your living blog. Amen!

Good Friends - Good Times!
We were blessed to have our good friends, Don and Kathy Rose, with us for the Labor Day Weekend. We had a wonderful time doing some touring of Forrest Park and the History Museum, and eating at all our favorite places. Above is Las Fuentes on Saturday. Notice the multiple bowls of salsa in front of Donna. They know us so well there that several of the waiters bring her extra bowls - and occasionally a spoon. Don and Kathy have been special friends since 1998, when we moved to TN, and we have stayed connected over the almost eight years we've lived in Florissant. They go on all our bi-annual vacation trips with us, and they have come up to nearly every Bible Action Musical each year. Last year, when they came to visit us over the Labor Day weekend, I informed them that it was a non-negotiable tradition, so they had to come back this year. They are true friends, who we can count on and they can count on us. We laughed a lot, played a lot of cards and Fargle (called Farkle by some) and ate way too much - but boy was it good. It was especially good to have them with us last Sunday to again meet our church family. God is so good to bless us with wonderful friends, like many in our church family, who we long to be with and who make life such an amazing experience. The best part is that we're all children of God and heirs of the Kingdom, and we will have all eternity to enjoy being together!
I just happened to think - I hope there's salsa in Heaven!
