I read the below Quote the other day and then ran across it on the computer a few days later. I can't explain exactly how it makes me feel but I am sure after you read it you will feel something too.

"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."
--C.S. Lewis

We had a lot to be thankful for this year, as every year. I always try to keep myself reminded of just how blessed we are.

Spending time with the familes was great. Thursday we went to Marion, AL to the brides side of the family. I will check with the bride to see if she took any pictures so I can post them.

Friday morning packed up the car to head to my parents house for the weekend. We stopped by Kohl's along the way and did some CHRISTmas shopping. We almost finished it all there.

The weekend with my side of the family was great as well. We did some more shopping, eating, watching the football game, where we sadly watchrd Bama LOSE...AGAIN!!!

Sunday morning we went to the church that I grew up in and then headed home and rested for the rest of the afternoon and evening.

'O Christmas Tree 'O Christmas Tree

The colors are Turquoise, Brown and Gold...

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas...

At the Snyder house anyways!

We put up our Christmas tree yesterday after church and hung the wreath on the door and the garland around the columns on the porch. I do not think I am going to do the icicle lights because it is a lot of work and I just do not feel like hanging from a ladder this year.

The tree looks great. I will try and post some pictures of it before Wednesday of this week; because after Wednesday...I AM OFF!!!...until Monday Nov. 26th.

Saturday we went to the Alabama Football game...and that is ALL I am going to say about that, except I am glad that the tickets we got were FREE because it would have been a shame to pay for that game!

Don't Forget...3 Days until TURKEY DAY and 36 Days until CHRISTMAS!!!Hey, I'm just letting you know!

My 2 cents worth!!!

I have to say that I am glad that I do not live in the city of Birmingham, AL.

Larry Langford was just recently voted for the Mayor seat starting next year. Monday night they had his inauguration(to induct into office with formal ceremonies) dinner for him to speak about what he wants to see happen in B'ham.

Lanfords biggest thing before he was inducted into office was getting a Dome Stadium to Birmingham and that is almost all he has spoken about since he won.

Well, it seems like B'ham is going to get a Dome Stadium, for a team we DO NOT HAVE, and if you don't like it, then stay home while everyone else is going to the Dome Stadium; again to see the NFL or some other kind of huge team that we do not have. Birmingham can't even keep the Steel Dogs or any other kind of team that we have tried in the past.

Birmingham has the fastest growing crime rate in Alabama and exceeds their previous rate every year. HOW TERRIBLE! People are going to support a "stupid" idea of building a Dome when the money that they are going to use could be used to "clean up the streets" of crime. Go door to door in the crime areas and start busting the crack houses, gangs, etc.

But, I have a better idea; Let's build a Dome in a part of the city that crime takes place and let us go to functions that take place there and risk getting mugged or something of the sort. Smart, very smart Langford!

This is not a, "If you build it they will come." We need to already have a reason for it. Alabama is a College Football State. Though there are people who like the NFL, etc. we have no need for this Dome.

Okay, I'm done! That was my 2 cents worth! Did I mention that I am glad that I do not live in the City of Birmingham.

God is THAT Good!!!

I will try and make this short but it is great. Here it is:

Every Wednesday night on the way to church I pick up 2 boys that are in the youth group. Sometimes one comes, sometimes both. They are brothers so I never know until one gets in and says the other is not coming.

Anyways I picked one up last night and when I was taking him home after church he got to telling me that he and Geno, the youth pastor, were talking about his mom and praying for her. (the two brothers live with their grandmother and their parents are separated so and on top of that they hardly see either one of their parents.) One brother is 15 the other is 13. (the 13 year old was with me last night). I told him that always remember that God does hear your prayers and he will answer them.

Their mom is going through some stuff now and he was missing her and you could tell that it was effecting him. As we were driving down hwy. 31 he looks over at this car we are passing and it is his mother driving the car. He got SO excited. I blew the horn until we got her attention and then we pulled over behind her. He got out and talked to her for a minute or two and then got back in and she followed us to his grandmothers. I wish you could have seen his face; the way it was lite-up with Joy.

It was all I could do to keep from crying. All I could say while I was driving away was Praise God! You are Awesome God!

Why am I telling you this??? Because:

1) I called Geno, the youth pastor, when I was driving away to tell him and he coudn't beleive it and said that it was exactly what he needed at that moment. He needed to see his mom and God answered a 13yr. old boys prayer.

2) The pastor taught from Psalm 105 last night and it spoke about giving Thanks and telling about God's Wonderous Works...and this is WONDEROUS!!!

3) That you will be reminded that God is hearing EVERYTHING you are praying to Him.
