brrrrrr my furnace is out!

We all take turns going out to the kitchen to get snacks and the such.... It couldn't happen at the worst possible time. We had -18 yesterday and -13 this am.

Sometimes I let my worldly life take over and forget what's really important. I should give more and take less....
I hope to work on these areas of my life this year. I want to make good choices on how I spend my time with my family, friends, spiritual needs, health, wealth and community. I want to really live in a way that reflects God's pure …
