I learned more than how to stuff a turkey or properly dice an onion in my mother's kitchen She hardly ever let me cook (her kitchen), but she let me watch and she talked. She would tell me where this recipe came from and on what special occasion it would have been served. She talked about her mother and how she did things. She talked - I listened and watched. Having an very good visual memory - I learned. (Please don't ask me people's names, I am bad at that.) My mother has been gone now for several years, but her recipes live on, as do her notes. "V.G." on a recipe card means she thought that recipe was very good. "Skip salt", "more sugar" "cook 10 minutes longer" meant just that. "Walt's favorite" (my dad) surely couldn't have been written to jog her memory! My mother was recording h...

     A group of homeowners sought to block foreclosures in Minnesota, but their class action suit has been dismissed by US District Judge Ann Montgomery.  The lawsuit claimed that homeowners were not given proper notice when they were rejected on the right to appeal when dealing with the Home Affordable Modification Program.      The attorney for the homeowners stated that new regulations have been adopted since the lawsuit was filed in July that address some of the raised concerns but that the process is not as transparent as it should be.      What has your experience been working with this program?

         Along with a new main entrance for the Cuyuna Range Medical Center,  the new pharmacy and inpatient areas will be completed in this phase.  The inpatient rooms are much larger and offer pull out couch beds for family members.  Communications for patients to staff are improved and electronic medical records in place.        After the dust settles, the next phase of construction will begin.  A large sweeping hallway to the inpatient area will feature water sounds and natural lighting for sensory appeal.  Along the hallway will be a cafe, visitor lounges and a chapel.  This phase will be complete early in 2008.

Jesus came that we may have life and have it abundantly.John 10:10 What does that mean- "abundantly"?  The dictionary describes the term as - plentiful, rich, in fullness to overflowing, wealth. ABUNDANT FAITH - Overflowing faith - what does that even look like?  Faith is not stagnant - it flows into us and out of us, and we are changed in the process.  When genuine faith is placed in the hands of a living God, when faith is allowed to permeate every aspect of our lives, it is contagious!Others will be inspired , knowing that God will do what He has promised to do. ABUNDANT HOPE -   Every day is unpredictable, full of issues that can capsize our well-laid plans and dreams.  When we find ourselves off course, we can haphazardly reach out for anything close enough to hold on to.  Scriptur...
