Look closely at the photo of this window. How do you feel? Are the branches dying around your windows of opportunity? I don't know why I like this picture so much. Perhaps because I have turned around and see a doorway wide open!

We have an opportunity with our company to help re-build a community devestated by two recent hurricanes. They need 9000 homes now and 2000 more each year over the next several years. We are in meetings now with city officials, developers, bankers etc. It is very exciting to step back and watch God work!

To Honor my Husband on Veteran's Day

Today, especially, I honour my husband on Veteran's Day. He served in Viet Nam as a gunner on a helicopter, in the maintenance of the airplanes and in the secret and confidential files. He sufferred one serious flashback a few years ago where he motioned combat signals to his wife to get down and take cover. After a brief hospitilization, he was fine. He does not talk much about the war but I know from the stories he has told me of his intense bravery and courage. We watch a lot of the military channel which has helped me learn so much about history and the supreme cost of war. I don't like war, but I do value our freedom and so appreciate my husband and the many others who have served our country. God Bless America and thank you for my own hero!
