Happy Birthday Kim!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister, Kim!!! I love you!!

Since it is a cold, rainy, soon to be icy day here is a Fun BOOK tag:

1. Pick up the book nearest you.
2. Turn to page 56.
3. Post sentences 2-5.
4. Be honest and don't go find a "cool" book!

I just finished reading The Shack on Sunday so at least I've got a book to post from.

"They grabbed sandwiches, which were barely touched, and then drove to the police Station. Tommy Dalton was the father of two daughters himself, his oldest being only five, so it was easy to see that this case struck a particular nerve with him. He extended every kindness and courtesy he could to his new friends, especially Mack.
Now came the hardest part, waiting."

Ways to pray for your children

Here are some ways to pray for your children and your grandchildren:

1. That they will know Christ as Savior early in life. (Psalm 6:3 and 2Timothy 3:15)

2. That they will be protected from the evil one in each area of their lives...spiritual,
emotional and physical. (John 12:15)

3. That they will have a responsible attitude in all their interpersonal relationships.(Daniel 6:3)

4. That they will respect those in authority over them. (Romans 13:1)

5. That they will desire the right kinds of friends and be protected from the wrong
friends. (Proverbs 1:10-11)

6. That they will be kept from the wrong mate and saved for the right one.
( 2 Corinthians 6: 14-17)

7. That they will learn to totally submit to God and actively resist Satan in all
circumstances. (James 4:7)

8. That they will be single-hearted, willing to be sold out to Jesus Christ.
(Romands 12: 1-2 )

9. That they will be hedged in so they cannot find their way to wrong people or
that the wrong people cannot find their way to them. (Hosea 2:6)

10. Lastly,but very important, that they will have a hunger to know God and His Word!

Wanna see inside our office?

The building our office is in was built in 1900. We are located on the square in historic McKinney. If you are familiar with the square then you will be able to find us easily since we are above the Lavender House Tea Room and accross the street from Aparicios Mexican Restaurant.

We are still decorating but we have painted and added some furniture. We still need to accessorize.

Just noticed in this picture that the logo on the door is a bit crooked, dang Kim!

View from front door towards our desks.

Agent desk.

View of Front sitting area.

Another angle.

What do you think?

Trans Siberian Orchestra

Wow! Amazing! Best concert ever! If you haven't seen them then the next time they are in town it is a MUST. We had a blast at the show. These are some very talented musicians and they ROCK! Here are some shots of the show captured on our phone....the AAC confiscated my real camera so that Keith got to stand in a never ending line after the concert to get it.
