TGIF=Fabulous weekend!

First off, let me say that I'm sooooo glad this weekend it's going to warm up for us Floridians!!! I give props to the people up north, don't know how you do it. It has been in the freezing temperatures down here. CRAZY!! I'll stick with the 70 to 80 degree weather, thank you :o)

Don't know if you have ever heard of this band:




They are amazing....check out their website @ www.fireflightrock.com. Sorry I couldn't get the picture any bigger. They are formed and based out of Eustis, FL, outside of Leesburg, where I live, and are members of the church I used to attend. God has done amazing things in and through this band and has really opened up doors of GREAT opportunity for them and they are signed and constantly are traveling all over the country. So I was thrilled when Wendy (the girl on the far left in the picture and her husband is the first guy on the right towards the middle) e-mailed me to let me know they were in town for a bit and wanted to see if we could get together. Of course I said YES. She is such a dear friend of mine. So tonight we're going to have a chick flick night and it will be so great to catch up with her. If you would, please keep this band in your prayers as they continue to seek God and be obedient to the calling placed on their lives.

Lauren,

What a great idea to just get away and spend quality time with the fam. That is my favorite thing to do. I will keep the band in my prayers, thanks for sharing about them. If you ever want to know how to put links in a post where they will work let me know Id be happy to help. Its not all that easy I know. Sometimes if you dont do it just right it will take the text right out and replace it with the url address and then you get no link.

I noticed that you had become a follower of our blog for my wife and I (Carey and Tim). I just wanted to let you know that our main blog is Fort Thompson. You can follow it as it is the main blog and you can easily access the other family pages from it by clicking on the pictures at the top of the sidebar.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Love and Prayers,

Tim

P.S. Looking forward to pics of your weekend! By the way, I have the post about my nephew's name ready to go, but I have to get the go ahead from my sis. There are a couple people with hurt feelings (simply for immature reasons) but I'll post as soon as I can. Until then, I would like to share with you his name... ~Jorgen Charles Berg~ Thank you so much for praying for my sister and him over the last couple of weeks!! It means so much to me!
