Good Morning! They weather may not amount to all the hype, even if it is as cold, no snow. I am surprising glad to report that, we need to have church tonight.  Christmas is coming!!  Please keep Deanna Spicer in your prayers.  Deanna is in ICU in Rolla.  I stopped by yesterday, but they are not allowing visitors.  I invite you…

Good Morning! They weather looks to be changing again.  A little rain last night, but now they talk about rain changing to snow tomorrow.  Hmm.  Makes sense, always on a church night.  Don’t panic, the forecast is for very little snow.  Carol and I are catching the new Gilmore Girls on Netflex.  We ended summer last night…

Good Morning!  We made it to Memphis and back.  The race weekend was exciting.  I was very proud of our group, they did a great job and represented our community well.  We all met our fundraising goals and that is really the important part of the weekend.  The weekend raised over 10,000,000.00.  At St. Jude no family ever…

Good Morning!  We are on the way to Memphis to run for St. Jude.  I feel the least prepared I have ever been, but it isn’t about me.  It is about the kids.  This is our smallest team in years, 7 runners.  We will have raised over $6,500.00 with help of caring folks like you.  Thank you.  Friday evening is the…

Good Morning!  Yikes!  It is December, can you believe it?  The last month of the year.  I am glad we have Christmas, it makes the year end wonderful.  I watched the kids practice a bit last night and was filled with joy.  God has blessed this church with kids and leaders and all the makings of a growing…

Good Morning!  November ends today and then on to the final month of the year.  We have lots to celebrate and enjoy in December, I hope you are as excited about December as I am.  The weather did take a turn, it is much colder in the Ozarks this morning.  Ken McGrail and I had a chance to talk…

Good Morning!  This the week of the St. Jude Marathon and we are getting our last training runs behind us.  I am always touched by the brave and wonderful kids served by St. Jude.  I am thankful for all of you that have supported me and our team in this effort.  I am out this morning…

Good Morning!  What a wild weekend!  Family was in, family was gone, we are recovering from a great time.  We did lots of driving this weekend and glad to have everyone home safe and sound.  The Strebe kids made great strides this weekend.  They are eating and now it is time for their brains to heal.  Please keep up  your…

Good Morning!  Is it Friday yet?  It seems like a week and we are only getting started.  A great night last night with Love Packs and Head Start.  I guess it seems more hectic because we are trying to get 5 days into 3.  The church looks so nice decorated for Christmas.  I hate to get into a rush…

Good Morning!  The weather has clearly made a turn.  The morning run was a chilly run.  We have made it to Thanksgiving week and with it lots to do in a shorter week to get it done.  I am looking forward to family time and of course the great food.  We celebrated my dad’s 80th BD on Saturday, glad…
