The Chilien mine rescue has had a MAJOR effect on me people! I couldn't stop watching. I want to know how they are doing today. I had chills. I had tears. I wanted to know my daddy's thoughts, a coal miner for 20+ years, a mine rescue team member that won a national competition in 1987, he knew everything that could go wrong and he was a fellow worried on-looker. I cried everytime another miner came out. I am still praising God for the miracle that He performed Tuesday and Wednesday in Chile!

Thank you Lord that you STILL perform miracles everyday!

When I was younger, I had a shirt that read, "This world is not my home, although it seems to be. My home is with my God, in the place He's made for me. He's coming back real soon, the signs are very clear. And when that trumpet sounds, I'll be outta here!" (I think I bought the shirt at Camp Bethel - holla!!) And for some reason - I can't get those words out of my head today. Do you know where you are going when that trumpet sounds? I am just checking so I can start praying!! :)
