“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES
We have been doing "Friday Night at the Movies" as a family for 30 years plus. Every now and then we cancel the movie and play cards or games, just spending time with each other.
I love this tradition, and I love it that our kids come home for the weekend to participate.
Each week, a different person has the choice of the movie, so everybody gets to choose eventually. Of course NOW, we get to choose more often, as there are fewer folks at home. :)
Traditions are important for families. Each of our son's families do something different, and one of our daughters who has moved on also enjoys the tradition. These seem like small things at the time they are happening, but in the end, they are establishing good memories, good connections, and healthy interactions between family members and friends.
There are lots of friends who come now from associations at the college and church and it is so fun to see them interact.
I love young adults, they are just the coolest of creatures! :)
Here's to another Friday Night! What are y'all doing tonight?
