On this overcast and damp Oregon day, I reached for a bag of Orville Reddenbuder's Microwave Kettle Corn to soothe the " afternoon munchies" that I was fighting. Now normally, I toss the bag of popcorn carelessly into the microwave, press the ever-so-wonderful popcorn button, walk away, and come back a perfect 2 mins and 20 sec. later to a bag of popcorn that is completely popped and never burned. I then take the bag of corn from the microwave and go on my merry way. Today was different though. As I took the bag from the microwave I noticed something I hadn't in the past- the word "Enjoy" scrolling across the tiny LED screen at the top right corner of the console. As I saw it, a smile instantly came across my face. "He wants me to enjoy my popcorn!" I loved it! Was it a message from God? Probably not. Was it a message from the little elf inside my microwave? There's better chances of it being from God. Was it just enough to bring a smile to my face and think about all my many blessings? Yes. That is enough for me!

Just thought I'd share...

The In-laws Come to Town!

Last weekend Mark and Sally came for a short visit from Newport. They took Emmalyn to the beautiful Lithia Park and walked around Ashland. Here are some pictures from their day together.

Could she get any cuter? I know I'm biased, but really, lets be honest here! Things are good, a longer update will be up shortly, but for now, I am off to bed! Hope all is well and happy with you.
