This came to my email in box this am as I was sitting down in the few minutes before I had to run to work. In that time I was trying to create our family calendar for the next three months, and I was asking myself what has to GIVE? So the follow was almost sent to me from the lord!

I am a volunteer
I am a friend
Wife
christian
neighbor
assistant scoutmaster
small group leader
community member
VBS leader

Over the past month I have added the 5 minutes of prayer daily during my drives to work and back or around town. Never
