Good Morning!  A cool morning in the Ozarks.  The fire felt really good this morning.  Our run was fine if you never went south, the wind was brisk.  We had a nice evening with friends making pizza and playing catch up, it was fun.  Tonight is Wednesday, but there are no activities at church.  Enjoy your loved ones…
