GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
A day late and a dollar short once again... And for those of you that will actually read this edition, you will be reading the last. The time has come. For some time I have been considering the retirement of the Connection and or perhaps make some changes. But now with the advent of actions by InJesus.com the decision was made for me. I had prepaid for the delivery of hundreds of thousands of emails a year or so ago and now they...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
Happy Resurrection Day! A little late as I should have passed along my Easter greetings in the previous edition. Seems like I am just running a little behind these days. We had a wonderful Easter here at Harvest Church in Glendale AZ. In addition to celebrating the first Resurrection morning, we also celebrated the new sanctuary with an open house. How excited Pastor Ron was to show off his long time vision and I have to say it gave me a warm...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
 What a wonderful weekend...  Pastor Ron from Harvest Church took all of us RV MAPPERs out for a steak dinner on Friday night as a night of appreciation for all the vlounteer work completed here this winter.  Many are now pulling out for their homes up north.  We too will no doubt be leaving in the next week or so.  Then Saturday we went to a LA Dodger / Seattle Mariner baseball game.  Was a perfect day for baseball.  And...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
Happy St Patrick’s Day…. Happy St Patrick’s Day…. Green really seems to be in now but certainly in this week.  So remember to wear green this Wednesday. When I think of St Patrick’s Day I think of the green shamrock and the luck of the Irish. But did you know according to legend, St. Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pre-Christian Irish. So it is a positive celebration… And I guess we could all use a little...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
Somebody has said there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are those who wake up in the morning and say, “Good morning, Lord,” and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, “Good Lord, it's morning” I hope that you are one of the latter.  Perhaps many in Hollywood have not even gone to bed celebrating the Academy Awards last night.  I was glad to see Sandra Bullock win the award for...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
Wow! What a busy week! Guess it is good to be busy. Of course there has been the work at the church and it is so exciting seeing the new sanctuary get closer to completion. On Friday the last sheet of sheet rock was put into place. It was just one of over 1000 sheets of 5/8” thick 4 X 12 sheets. The 1800 sq ft platform is nearing completion and it definitely is looking like a church now. Yesterday morning, Pastor Ron honored the...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
I guess you notice that I don’t often chat about current events. Not much I could add anyway since you get the same news. But I do have to say that I find the Olympics so incredibly interesting. Seeing upsets and seeing medals won or lost by just hundredths of a second. Unbelievable! There is so much we all can learn about life from them…   
Do you remember the miracle on ice 30 years ago today? That's how many Americans remember the hockey game...

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and of course a lovely Valentine’s Day. Now we all have to fall back into the routine of things… or do we since today is President’s Day and for many that means a day off.  President’s Day falls on the third Monday of February so this year it comes as early as it ever will.  So how do you celebrate the holiday? Here it is going to be a big BBQ and since...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
Yesterday morning we started the sevice at Harvest with "When the Saints go marching in"  Not sure why but it seems most around these parts were for the New Orleans Saints.  Perhaps it is because they are in NFL along with the Cardinals.  Now that the Super Bowl is behind us the football season is officially over.  Now it is time to think about baseball spring training that is just around the corner.   But for right now it is...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
Welcome to February...  Wow...  What happened to January?  We had a wonderful weekend.  Everyone enjoys visitors and we had so special friends visit from Idaho Falls.  Reconnectiong with old friends is so fun.  We have so many fun memories with Allyn and Dorothee.  And no better place to chat about them than over a nice dinner.  Seems like we have been eating out a lot lately...  Kind of nice...

The big Arizona winter blast of 2010 is now history and from what we hear will go down in the history books.  More moisture fell in the state last week than in all of 2009.  But from my viewpoint was not a big deal.  The temps did drop a little into the upper 50’s and 60’s and we did experience a couple of rainy days but not a winter storm like our friends in the Dakota’s experience on...

Hope you had a great week last week! We did… Everyday you see progress and that is good. Saturday night we went to the Big Glendale Glitter & Glow Block Party. OldTownGlendale blocked off dozens of blocks displaying over 1.5 million glittering lights in their palm trees and whatever else.    Additionally there were a couple dozen hot air balloons that they started filling at dusk. Then of course lots of music and food booths which I have a hard time just passing up....

 GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
 A bit noisey around Glendale last night as the Arizona Cardinals managed to pull a win over the Green Bay Packers in overtime (51-45) in their play off game.  But the more exciting game was last Monday night when the Boise State Broncos beat the Texas Christian Horned Frogs in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale (17-10).  Both teams had been undefeated the entire season, however the Boise Bronco's are still undefeated.  Was a great season for our little local team ending...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS....
Happy New Year! Wow 2010!! Just hard to believe... Where did 2009 go? Time continues to fly at incredible speeds... I can well remember (even at my age) seeing this older lady on the Johnny Carson Show. It was her hundredth birthday and Johnny was interviewing her. He asked the question "You have been a around now for 100 years, you have seen so much happen during your life, What is the most remarkable thing you recall seeing?" The beautiful old lady...

GOOD MORNING CONNECTORS.... 
What a wonderful Christmas time we had in our house again this year with all our family and few others for the last few days...  Lots of games, too much food and not very much sleep.  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too and are now focusing on the start of another New Year... Just as the Christmas season brings new hope generated from the celebration of our Savior's birth, the new year brings renewed hope of new beginnings. It is...
