Caleb Mac is named after our dear friend, Mac Powell of Third Day! Mac named his son, Cash, after Tim, and we were thrilled to reciprocate when Caleb came along! Caleb loves Uncle Mac and frequently asks to call him so he can see when Uncle Mac can babysit! :O)

Well, last Saturday Caleb got his first opportunity to see Uncle Mac sing live! He was thrilled and talked about it incessantly for days before...and after! Here is a picture of Caleb, Jesse, Uncle Mac and his kids Scout and Cash!

Rachel and Benji with Uncle Mac!

It's beginning to feel a lot like fall! \O/

Many of you know I am Canadian born and bred, now living in the deep south! I love living here, but the heat is another story. I can handle it pretty well the first few months, but by mid-August I am ready to rip my hair out!

I am presently, as I type, sitting on my screened-in back porch. There is steam coming off my cup of coffee and there is a slight chill in the air. It feels even better because I just got done working out and was "glowing" quite a bit! ;O)

Now, the leaves down't get as pretty down south as they do up north. If you have never enjoyed a northern fall, you really don't know what you're missing! I'll take these cooler temps, though! The air is crisp and humidity-free and we can sleep with the window open! Woo! Hoo!

So I'm off to finish my coffee, open all the windows and light my fall candles! While I'm at it, I think I'll bake some pumpkin bread! Might as well go all the way! ;O)

My baby!

Hard to believe, but my baby is playing ball! Here is a slideshow of KK's first game! So cute...but of course, I AM a tad prejudiced!

Florida Vacation

What Have I Done?

What Do You Want? funny picture

Do you ever find yourself saying yes to something and at the same time you hear yourself say the word you realize you must be crazy? Happened to me today in a big way!

I have a passion for ministering to women! I love encouraging them, challenging them, praying for them, admonishing them and giving them food for thought...often the very same thoughts I have had to wrestle through myself. I really do love it...on a small scale.

The funny thing is that I want to love getting up in front of a lot of women and speaking! Kinda hard to do, though, when you absolutely hate to be the center of attention! I prefer to be the one in the family who prays for the one in the family who has been called to speak! ;O)

Do you see where this is going? Any clue? Would it shock you then if I shared that I heard myself saying yes to being the speaker at our church-wide Ladies' Christmas Tea? Was I nuts? Did I have a brain-freeze...momentary loss of sanity? 300 women? Ackkk!

Tim always says that when you run out of the natural then you are a candidate for the super-natural! Wow! Am I ever a candidate!

So, if you think of it, would you pray that the Lord would give clarity of thought, nerves of steel and a lock on my mouth so I don't commit to anything else in the near future! Thanks!
