Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
Ephesians 2:7-10 The Message

Just checking in...

Well, our week of rest is over and it's time to jump back in. We arrived home yesterday afternoon after spending a couple of extra days in Reno so we could get a little shopping done. If I never have to stay in another casino hotel I won't be dissappointed. Saturday night was sure loud, at 3 AM. So much for sleep.

The kids had a great time with Grandma, though I hear Spencer spent a lot of time in "the cave" as we have dubbed his room! That was his last hur-rah on the computer. We are imposing time limits beginning today. I should say enforcing time limits. We have set them in the past, but since there really is not much to do in Round Mountain for our boys who aren't into sports, we have been lax on the rules. Pray for us!

Won't they be excited to find a list of things to do waiting for them when they come home from school?!?! Actually today there isn't much to do around the house, but I'm sure I can think of something.

Please keep praying for our ministry here in Round Mountain and the people in the church.

We appreciate each of you. Thank you for your prayers and support.

What a coincidence... our boys are having screen time limits enacted today. It is so easy to get lax with letting them always be at a screen (tv, xbox, ds, computer)just because what else is there to do? Starting today they will have to find out what "what else" is!
Maybe they will find it comforting in some way to find out they are not the only ones!

Guess we are in this one together!
