Now Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Well the pictures are on facebook and all were smiling so I guess the I.C. Board retreated and had a great time. And now onto this weekend and the St. Jude Walk. It’s really kinda heartwarming knowing that so many other ESA chapters are working at the same time (we will be there at 5:30 a.m.) for what is becoming a huge and fun event for Alsac and ESA. So let’s pray for good weather, and big turnouts.
You know as I type this report and read the needs I take each and every one of them seriously, but one this week I just kept going back to. I know I’ll probably hear about this from someone but I just gotta tell ya, when I got the e-mail from Indiana about Audreyalice passing the bar I just couldn’t imagine why congratulations were in order, I pass two or three a day! Believe it or not I had to really think about it when I realized OMG I think my brain needs a break to rejuvenate. Duh, she passed the State Bar exam to be a real live lawyer. So sorry Audreyalice sometime I just need to have it spelled out for me, congratulations, I wish you the best in your career. (At this rate I may need you one day to bail me out.)
