Hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day and got to share at least part of it with someone you love. This past weekend's weather was just lovely - cool nights for sleeping and sunny warmish days for soaking it up.
Happy Birthday to Emily Jordan Rhode on the 17th, Amber Sanders on the 19th and Sam Jordan Hoerster on the 22nd; have a wonderful day!
The power of prayer works! Many of the people that we were asked to pray for last week have improved. It's such a beautiful thing to be party to. Please continue to pray for Ruby Toeppich, Etta Marie Mutschink, Anna Grace Durst, Jane Krause, Pearl Leifeste, and Dick Pierson. My 5 month old great nephew has walking pneumonia, of course, I had to point out that it can't really be walking pneumonia since he can't even crawl yet, so please pray for the little guy to get better soon. I know many people are suffering from pneumonia or the flu or seasonal allergies, let us pray that they heal quickly.
As we go about our daily life and enjoy the freedoms we have, remember all the men and women who have died (and those still fighting) so we can live the lives we do. We have rights and freedoms that other countries don't, and we should never take for granted those privileges. Honor our servicemen and women by supporting their choices to serve.
To choose faith, to believe in God, is a very powerful choice. To be able to take your troubles to God, to let Him take them, is an all encompassing choice. Every day we have to choose God, trust in Him and know that He leads us down the path He has already chosen for us. Love and trust in God, receive from Him the wisdom that only He can give. Believe. Lay your burdens down at His feet and know that He will be there. Choose God, the same way He has chosen you.
