My Companions pray with me: May Your Name be praised by our response to the signs of the times, Lord. Please forgive us for failing to notice the signs of Your love and Your will for us. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for the blessings You rain on us. We seek our daily bread and all that may bring glory to You. Amen

Keeping In-touch: I lost the election for City Council, Ward 1 here in Broomfield by about 65 votes. We put-up a good fight and will graciously move on to our next challenge as we attempt to read the sign of the times. Although I will not have the opportunity to serve our City as a council person, I have been richly blessed by so much encouragement, support, and affirmation.

My comments and an invitation for your comments:
The weather prognosticators often come close with their predictions. I take them with a grain of salt. Whenever I hear talk or predictions about "the end of the world," I respond with skepticism. These predictions have surfaced often throughout history...and we're here. Hopefully we can notice signs of the Kingdom of God in our lives.
