  Calendar for February and March
I have just finished updating my calendar of events for February and March.

  Presidents Meeting

We had a great time at the CMA Chapter Presidents meeting today. It all started out kind of iffy, when the temperature was in the mid 30s, but it stayed there, and didn't get any colder, so no one had any problem with ice on the road, and was able to get to my house without any problems. We had a wonderful time of fellowship before the meeting started, and then the meeting was very productive. Here is a picture of our presidents, some spouses and a few other officers.

  The President's Points

Well, here we are in the middle of February. CMA Seasons of Refreshing was last week, and we had a pretty good turnout for the 4 hour drive up to Canton, we had 9 people from our chapter in attendance. The total attendance I heard was 382, up from last year. Since food is an important part of life, we stopped at the Czech bakery on the way up to sample their fruit cakes, we had Dairy Palace's great burgers Friday night, and wonderful BBQ Saturday at lunch. The travel was uneventful as far as I heard, which is good, everyone made it up and back safely with no tickets or accidents. Curtis' teaching was right on, reminding us that we are each placed here on a mission, which is not to sit on a church bench and vegetate for our whole life. Church is great, and necessary, but real life, for most of us, begins outside the church as we follow the leading that Christ has on each of our lives. Curtis said a couple of times that he thought he was preaching to the choir, but I think we all need to hear that message at times, to remind us that when we don't see God doing anything in our lives, maybe we need to get up and start paying attention to what the Bible teaches about loving your neighbor more than yourself. In simple terms, maybe I need to quit looking at myself, and start looking out. This was a message that I definitely needed to hear, even though, or perhaps because, I was deep into my own pity party through much of the weekend. Anyway, I will close this with a modification of a saying I have heard several times from an astronomer who said "keep looking up", which I will modify to "keep looking out",


I have posted a short video of Seasons on, you can watch the video HERE. (you need Flash to view the video)

And for those of you that don't have Flash capability, here is a photo of the event;

  Alan Babin at the Roadhouse
Alan is a Gulf war veteran, who was severly injured in 2003. He has made great strides in recovery, but still needs our prayers, and assistance. He was present at the Roadhouse in Round Rock Texas for a photo shoot for a national magazine, and all the bikers from Vietnam Vets and UCOA (United Clubs Of Austin), who have been supporting Alan in his recovery journey showed up for pictures. It was a wonderful event.

Here is a video of a few of the people welcoming Alan:


Here is a photo for the "Flash" challenged,

Alan and a friend. The t-shirt Alan is holding was a gift.

  The Church Chili Bowl
We had the Chili Bowl at church during the Super Bowl.  We had lots of chilli and wonderful snacks, not to mention game play.
Some of the details of my life, as I allow Christ to live out His life through me.
