Say "CHEESE"

 

New anchor Amy Baumann's son Eli had his first day of preschool on Thursday!  We were laughing about how our boys like to squint when they "smile for the camera."  I found this great website where you can get some tips on how to take pictures of your kids that look cool and professional.  Check it out.  And then share some of the amazing pics of your kids (or the funny smile/squinty eye pics:) on our Facebook page.  (BTW, Amy wanted me to point out that she had bought him the CUTEST first-day-of-school outfit, but he insisted on dressing himself in a sweatshirt, shorts and flip-flops:)  Thanks for letting us share our lives with you.  Peace and k-love, Lisa

Here are some cool 9 things I found in the Bible today...

Psalm 9:9  The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,
       a stronghold in times of trouble.

Psalm 99:9 Exalt the LORD our God
       and worship at his holy mountain,
       for the LORD our God is holy.

And then, check out these cool "nine" verses in the New Testament...

  1. Luke 15:7
    I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
    Luke 15:6-8 (in Context) Luke 15 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Luke 17:17
    Jesus asked, "Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?
    Luke 17:16-18 (in Context) Luke 17 (Whole Chapter)
  3. Acts 2:15
    These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It's only nine in the morning!
    Acts 2:14-16 (in Context) Acts 2 (Whole Chapter)

Reading the whole passages of the above "9" verses, I was so touched with God's passionate love over us, the importance for sincere and readily given thankfulness to Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit filling us so we can impact the world.  POWERFUL "9" STUFF!  The Bible never ceases to amaze me.  There is so much to read, so much to learn, so much to discover.  It is alive.  It changes us.

peace and k-love, Lis

    Tripit.com

    Some people are saying this site is addictive.  It can do a lot of cool things including coordinating your vacations with your family and friends, as well as keeping track of flight times, confirmation numbers, hotel addresses and phone numbers.  So instead of carrying around a stack of printed-out e-mails to know when your flight leaves, where your rental car is, and how to find your hotel, you can have it all in a free on-line account at Tripit.com.  Thought you might like:)  hugs and k-love, Lisa
