"Courageous" To Be In Theaters Tomorrow

The makers of Flywheel, Facing the Giants, and Fireproof have joined together again and made another movie!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Although this is not another movie starting with the letter "F"it looks like it will be just as powerful!  "Courageous" is a movie that I think we will all want to see!

Watch the trailer below!  It's really good!

A New Addition.... :]

A little over a week ago we had a new addition added to our alpaca family!!! The little guy was about a month over due and we were wondering if "Mom" had just gotten really fat when all of a sudden on Sunday, September 18th, at around 1:30 we had a cria (baby alpaca) born!

Just a half hour old!
It's a typical NE fall already and we've had some early, cool fall days. It was a little chilly on Sunday so we had to get out the hair dryer and dry him off and get him warm.  After he got used to the sound of the dryer, I think he started to enjoy it.  The warm air was putting him to sleep ;)

First Steps!
Within an hour he was actually running around the pen.  He was obviously cautious as his legs still were not very strong, but he was bouncing around the best that he could =}

Soaking up the sun!
The next day we put mom and baby outside in the pen to enjoy the day and soak up some sun.  We couldn't have asked for a nicer day for his first time outside!

Sprawsed right out =]
 By this point you're probably wondering what we've named him right????  Well, I like to go with names that have some historical background to them.  For example, one of his older brothers is named "General Hancock" (a name from the Civil War) and his other brother is named "Lafayette" after the french general who helped us during the Revolutionary War.  So....I decided to go with "Tyndale" after William Tyndale the famous Bible translator.  

His mother Dorothy is a wonderful mom and both of them are doing really well!  God is so good!

Hope you enjoyed the pics!  I'll post some more in a few weeks.

Watch your thoughts;
they become your words.
Watch your words;
they become your actions.
Watch your actions;
they become your habits;
Watch your habits;
they become your character.
Watch your character;
it becomes your destiny.

"In My Seat": A Pilot's 9/11 Story

I viewed this video on another website (Side by Side) and immediately wanted to share it with all of you.  This movie reminded me of how precious life is and how we are living here on borrowed time.  God has a purpose for all of us and has given us the resources, talents and abilites we need to accomplish His goal for us. However, it is up to us to make the choice to follow and obey Him in order to find that purpose and live a life worth living.

This video caused me to ask myself, am I using every minute of every day to glorify God?  Do I thank God for the time He has given me to make a difference for Him?  Do I see His hand at work in all that I do, to the point that I thank Him for the things that come into my path everyday and slow me down, ie. traffic, illness, talkative people, etc.?

Please, take a few moments and watch this movie.  This man was supposed to be the pilot for the plan that crashed into the North Tower on 9/11/01.
