I started going to different churches to get a feel for the spirit of the church to help me in my quest to enable Americas Grow A Row program to flourish here in Rusk county. However, without Colleen Duerr and Rev. Donn Schroeder's wisdom & prayer I don't think it could have gotten to the point it has! I'm discovering it's actually started to motivate me to find a home church.
I rented two movies tonight "The Express" & "Fireproof". I liked the movies and thought about my college days. I remembered how many times people told me something couldn't be done and how I believe they could & did them. It's amazing what one can accomplish when one chooses to believe. I suspect the same holds true not only for me but, for many of you who read my blog. If we will simply give ourselves permission to believe we can it's amazing what we can accomplish. I found the interviews featured on the DVD's most inspiring and reminded how much faith plays a part in every aspect of our life.
