Snippets from the sermon this morning

"To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.

Every action and decision we make, the expressions on our face, and the words we speak are influencing other people.

Our influence reaches farther than we can imagine and we are influencing people we don't even know we are influencing!

You should seek for your influence to be powerfully positive."

-Dr. S. M. Davis

Just had quite an adventure...

...eating crawdads!!!

Yup, you heard that right. We are now officially Missouri-ans!

Yesterday I took some of my brothers and my sister to Flat Creek to play and swim. We met a lady there who showed us that there are several crawdads and how to catch them and then how to cook them! So, we thought we'd surprise Mom and bring home dinner! :)

We caught the whole adventure on camera, after we got home that is:

A crawdad!

Having fun with the crawdads! You just hold them on their back, right behind their head and "pinchers" and then they can't get ya! :)

Boiling them...

This was our biggest one! Found out that males have one BIG pincher and one small one (the one below was a male) and a female's pinchers are both small and the same size.

As you can tell, Mom is not too sure about this! :)

Finally, Mom touched one ... since it was cooked!


They actually taste just like lobster, very good! The only problem is that we are gonna have to go and drain Flat Creek in order to feed our whole family! :)

Psalm 1

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish."

-Psalm 1
