Tomorrow is Laura's birthday. We celebrated her birthday over the weekend: Saturday, we had chips, guacamole, and peach margaritas and played Scrabble. We had grilled New York strip steaks, lobster tails, and steamed asparagus for dinner. There was so much food that we had a redux on Sunday evening—substituting grilled corn on the cob and grilled red potato halves for the asparagus. Earlier in the afternoon, we had chips, guacamole, and strawberry margaritas.

The sermon at Harvest Christian Center Sunday morning was given by Rev. David Woods. Rev. Woods is a world-famous evangelist from Portland, OR. His sermon was powerful and was followed by an altar call, at which several were delivered from bondage and others were healed of afflictions. Tonight begins a crusade that will last through Friday. Each evening this week, Rev. Woods will lead the crusade. It shall be a powerful experience. Many shall be delivered, many shall be healed, and many shall be saved! Praise God!
