Living in CA and watching the Rose Parade and rose bowl!  When we were in S Carolina and it was cold and dreary, I felt a little home sick for CA

Dinner and a movie out of town with our dear friends!

Lunch with Monique

Dinner with Gil and Pamela after the game

My sweet son coming over for dinner -- "free food" as he puts it!  But I know he really comes for the company!! 😜😜


“When the Son of God walked the earth,...He willingly chose isolation so that you and I might never be alone. Most wonderfully, he bore God’s wrath so that you wouldn’t. God has no anger for you; only forgiveness, mercy, and grace.
