our new Breville!!!!

it can make lattes AND steam great milk for home-made HOT CHOCOLATE! (matt loves that part of it, since he's not a coffee drinker)
i love it!!!!!

our CHRISTMAS tree...

i love having the Christmas tree up. we actually got it when we got home from Thanksgiving, this year. i used to think those people were crazy, to set up for Christmas, SO EARLY...but now i am turning into one of them. In my defense, i am trying to get as much enjoyment out of our little 3 1/2 foot tree as i can, before we take it down, before leaving to head down to San Antonio, for Christmas!
Every morning, the first thing i do, after getting up, is to turn on the Christmas tree lights!

Matt Chandler

what an amazing and convicting testament!
it seems like so many people are taking about the situation Village Church Pastor, Matt Chandler, is in...i have never been to the Village, though have always heard SO many GREAT THINGS ABOUT IT...
i have been following Matt's status with the removal of a brain tumor, Friday, through a friend's blog. apparently, it was only discovered 1 week ago, on Thanksgiving, when he had a seizure and woke up in the emergency room.
anyways, this is just amazing, so i thought I'd post the video of Matt declaring the truth, which revels his amount of bravery in our Lord. He is a man of faith and i think it is so cool how the Lord is working in his life!
the challenge for all of us is not to just be moved and inspired by situations like this, but, rather, to make a move; even a dramatic move, to change our lifestyle, thoughts, approaches and attitudes toward our commitment to faith in the Lord, so it looks more like this.
check out this 4 minute video...
