Good Morning!  Christmas is almost here.  I am thankful today for a God that loves me enough to sacrifice time in heaven to come to earth for my salvation.  Thank you God for the blessing of your love and grace.  A quick trip to St. Louis yesterday, a joy to spend time with the Strebe family. …

Good Morning!  It is warmer than yesterday, but still cold.  We ran this morning and it was 17 when we ran by the bank.  It really wasn’t bad if you weren’t running into the wind, but of course there is some running into the wind.  Santa arrived last night and brought joy to the Head Start kids…

Good Morning!  We are in the deep freeze in Salem.  The call was made to not run today, we will face the elements, but below 10 is just too cold.  The snow and freezing temps took a toll on attendance yesterday.  I am so sorry for the musicians that poured heart and soul into preparation not to have the…

Good Morning!  Friday has arrived and the Sunday before Christmas looms before us.  The clock is ticking, we all scurry with those last minute preparations.  We may get a bit of snow over the weekend, but nothing to keep you from church.  The worship folks have gone all out to make your experience this weekend outstanding.  I hope…

Good Morning!  Have you been looking for this?  We had a website issue this morning, but it appears all is well now.  Thank you Elyse, I am so thankful for your help.  I took the dogs out and 4:30 and it was raining, however over the next 30 minutes the rain stopped.  However, we had gotten back…

Good Morning!  OK, winter weather has arrived.  Our run this morning wasn’t chilly, it was cold.  The key to this weather is of course layers and stay away from cotton.  It was cold, but we were fine having dressed accordingly.  The weekend is here, I for one am ready.  It is exciting to have the Kid’s Club…
