From Dollywood to Hollywood

I'm off again! We have a stop in MI for a family wedding and a rendezvous with CeeKay from Thinkin' of Home & Mimi from Mimi's Garden and then off to CA. We will see our daughter and family that are church planting . They have been there a couple of months now.

Our son-in-law (the pastor) said the door hangers should be ready and we can help canvass the area with info on the church. Exciting times for them.

We can't wait to see them and visit the area. We should be able to go to the ocean, Disney Land, mountains and a few other areas while we are there.

The draw back is lots of miles to travel and lots of switching planes.

Till we meet again in a couple of weeks, take care.

From one pumpkin to another!!!

A woman was asked by a coworker, 'What is it like to be a Christian?' The coworker replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.' God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.' This was passed on to me by another pumpkin. Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins. I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch. __________________________________________________
