Happy New Year!  It is the beginning of the Jewish New Year and a perfect time for a personal retreat.   A personal retreat is about taking time to get away from everyone and everything and allow Holy Spirit to revitalize our spirit, soul, and body.  We carve out room to spend an extended time with God and allowing Holy Spirit to do what He wants to.  Get away from your daily routine, celebrate His goodness and listen for His instructions for the upcoming year.  It is like taking a weekend with your best friend.

You get the Whole Bucket for that Price

Last month, we decided to have a garage sale.  We spent a lot of time going through everything and cleaning out stuff that had acuminated.  Believe me, the garbage men earned their keep for a couple of weeks!  During the sale, a couple came in with two adorable, little boys.  I soon realized that English was not their first language.  I had a bucket filled with toy dinosaurs marked $2 for the bucket.  The mom and boys went through the bucket one by one.  After some discussion, they brought one over to buy.  I told them they got the whole...
