I went to see 'Toy Story 3' in 3-D at the theater today. It was great. The movie is funny and entertaining, but then because it's in 3-D it looks so much better. If you've never seen anything in 3-D, first of all open your other eye, and second of all go see a movie in 3-D. It's worth the extra four dollars.

On a lighter note, I was attacked by a bug while I was in bed last night. It was quite an awful experience. the bug was some sort of flying moth-like bee. I swear the thing bit me in the neck, but there were no physical signs of trauma. It's the type of thing you see a horror movie, but you never think a small insect would kill you in your own home. Take nothing for granted...

Happy GOLDEN Birthday Dan (& Mike)

24 on the 24th

Of course we can't mention Dan's birthday without mentioning his twin brother, Mike.

They were born within 4 minutes of each other, Mike being the older. At 7# & 6#11 oz, wow, they were perfectly healthy and raring to go.

They had/have this special "twin" ability, which made them think alike[Liz would agree] Although they are identical, and most people cannot tell them apart, they do have very different personalities, likes, and dislikes.

What a joy it has been to see them grow and mature through the years. They have shared in family vacations, Cubbies, Awana, working at Mc Donalds, youth group, Crossroads Basketball, camps, and missions trips, Cedarville U grads, OPE, and 2 cars.

They leave a trail of friends and good memories wherever they go. Happy 24th Birthday Mike & Dan. We love you guys.

Prayers for Alex

Hey, many of you have seen comments from "Beth" who is the mom of an 11 yr old quadriplegic boy, in OH. She found us, shortly after Dan's accident in '07, and has always been a constant source of enthusiasm, despite her own son's circumstances. Alex needs prayer. Please read below.

“I wanted to let everyone know that Alex is just not doing well. There is something going on that cannot yet be figured out. He is not able to get up. I am asking for prayer. I have been in contact with the docs and there is discussion as to what may need to be done, i.e. tests, hospital stay, etc.
The docs cannot figure out how to get his BP under control

I am going to be is difficult to watch this special little man not even be able to get out of bed. Alex’s autonomic system went really crazy after the rod surgery, to stabilize his back, because he is still growing, .The most unstable part of the system is the blood pressure, and it has been almost 6 months since his surgery.

Please, if you could, lift a prayer up to The One, with the answers.”
