Blessed Memorial Day

Well, the conference is over *big sigh*, all the dancing is over *another big sigh* and that means that so are all of the meetings and practices. Overall, it seems that people enjoyed themselves this past weekend. It is always nice to meet new people who share your same ideals and beliefs, and also to meet up with people you just don't get to see enough. My girls finally got to meet Regina Doman and buy her new book "Midnight Dancers". My oldest has already read it twice, now hopefully she will let the rest of us get our hands on it! Thanks to all of you who threw in a last minute prayer for us.

Since today is Memorial Day, and a lot of people do some form of picnic activity, I thought I would throw in a great recipe for coleslaw that is a bit different and very easy to make. If you haven't gone to the store, yet, it would be a great addition to your mealtime festivities. And, as we celebrate what most people consider the beginning of the summer, let us remember in prayer all of the people who have fought and died to give us the freedom to celebrate!

God Bless!
