that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

keep in mind .. and heart


A past dear and close friend of mine was deployed out to Afghanistan in the recent week and I was reading the news to see that a 22 year old Canadian soldier was killed today. Needless to say my heart stopped, though it wasn’t my friend, but I was reminded of him…and others just like him fighting in this very real world. I am hoping that you all could keep him in your prayers. It’s been a few months since I have talked to him, and many more months of inconsistencies, but it’s the same God looking after all of us, regardless of experiences, and I would appreciate it if you kept Grant in your prayers. I don’t know the details of his ventures, but I do know he is there now. It’ll be like leading our own warfare at home… to keep him, and others, safe. Thanks!
