Words to Live by........Have the Courage............

Have the courage to appear foolish, because it is sad for those who never attempt anything. Have the courage to make mistakes, for they can teach you like nothing else can.
Have the courage to take action. For even though your actions carry the possibility of failure, if you never act then you are certain to fail.
Have the courage to live each day fully, with enthusiasm and a generous spirit. Though there are many problems in this world, there are a whole lot more positive possibilities.
Have the courage to do what is right instead of what is easiest or most convenient. It will earn you the respect of others and, even more importantly, the respect of yourself.
Have the courage to see and accept things for what they are. That will put you in position to make a real difference.
Have the courage to love, to speak your mind, to follow your curiosity and your passions. Have the courage to give of yourself, for the goodness you give will come back to you over and over again.

Friends, Family, Moving

Hi everyone! It has been a very busy week. I was blessed to be able to help some friends from church pack to move last week, and then went to my parents in East TN over the weekend to help them move and unpack, and then came back to help my friends unpack from their recent move. Many of you called me to check on me over the weekend since I was not at church and I love an appreciate all of you so much for that! My church family is my family and I don't know what I would do without you all. You are the best!

We will be heading to Colorado in a few days with our Youth and there will be lots of pictures and stories to tell when we get back. It is going to be an amazing time! Be blessed my blessed!

Pirates, Pirates, everywhere Pirates!

We went to see "Pirates of the Caribbean" and it was great! Johnny Depp was very funny. Here is one scene from the movie which is actually towards the end, and then..........wait a minute.............where did those other guys come from?! I almost didn't recognize them with those eye patches! Why it's Pirates III.............The Next Generation!!!!!!!!!!

Sumner Life Cookout.............Great time!

It was hot..........but it was fun! Our church went out to the Montgomery's farm to grill hamburgers and hot dogs with lots of great side dishes! We played volleyball (with the megaball), and some threw the frisbee, the guys played football and there were fireworks to top it all off when it got dark! Everyone had a great time! You should have been there!
