Ad infinitum ! How Long do Blog Posts Work? I'm not talking about the marketing blogs I write to showcase music home video's of our listings for sale in NW Indiana (athough we do get calls on posts in which the homes have already sold).

Funny how sometimes thin threads connect people..... Keri Burman, an actress and singer of Yadah Praise Productions found my Blog on the Women's Bible Study I facilitate at my Church in Valpo! Since our topic is Women of the Bible and Ms. Burman (a local Valparaiso resident) does Musical Dramatizations (scriptural based monologues and songs) to tell the incredible stories of Humble Heroines like Queen Esther. She wrote me a letter and enclosed her CD and asked if we would be studying the book of Esther (which we will be this fall), and if we would be interested in seeing (4 comments)

Valparaiso, Indiana is close to Chicago, so we get nightly news feeds from the Chicago-land TV stations. One such station, channel 7 - an ABC affiliate, has a reporter named Harry Potterfield, who over the years has done a series of reports named "Someone You Should Know" These reports highlight everyday citizens who make a difference in their local communities. I recently met a person of this caliber. We connected 1st on Twitter - I am one of her followers :) Her name is Ms. Christine Hisick and she is the Founder / Organizer of Banta Feeds Food Drives.

encouraging thoughts bilingual realtor northwest indiana: My Mom always said - "We Plan, God Laughs :)" What saying do you remember from your Mom? - 07/17/09 07:42 AM
We Plan, God Laughs........Just a " Mom-ism " (something my Mom used to say that I will remember forever and even find myself repeating to those I love). I thought I'd share this one ( there are many) with ya'll this morning. My Mom was full of one liner sayings or little stories that stick (like parables, with life lessons). Though I miss her at times - I have the precious gift of these memories! Sometimes, we make plans for a certain goal or dream around our time frame, and pray about it....then life happens and we may even get alittle disappointed for (15 comments)
