What a wonderful testimony we saw tonight. It was the viewing for Pastor Kurt and the line was long - so many people wanting to pay their respects to a man that probably would have been embarrassed by all the attention. He just wanted to serve God and I'm learning that he did that every day. Someone told Carl and I tonight that on earth there are good guys and then there are great men and Pastor Kurt was in the second group - he was a great man. He will be missed by his wife, sons, family, and friends. If you would like to read more about Pastor Kurt and how he touched lives, read here and here.

Recently I purchased two new exercise DVDs - Kettlenetics and Physique 57 and they are good but tough! Now, let me remind you that I'm really out of shape so they might not be that difficult for some of you.
Kettlenetics - Let me start by saying that I purchased this at Best Buy for less than the cost on link above - bargain! I did the 20 minute workout (flowMotion basics) and couldn't even make it through without stopping (several times) - it was a good workout for me and my thighs really felt it the next day. The second time I did the workout, I only stopped once - not as difficult this time, but still a good workout. Eventually the 4 lb ball will need to be replaced with something heavier, but for now it works just fine. The next time I do this workout, I'm going to try the 40 minute workout (cardio balanced) and I know I'll probably have to stop, but it will be worth it in the end.

On Friday night we are going to a chili cook-off. There will be games (knockout, 3-3, euchre, ping pong, etc.) and I think it will be a fun time with family and friends. There was no school today (Thursday) so Kyle didn't have his basketball game tonight - just as well - we could use a night to just stay at home. Both boys have basketball games on Saturday and Ryan will be playing a game in between the JV and Varsity game that night as well. Sunday is the Colts game - looking forward to see how much I remember from my football lesson a few weeks ago. Have a great weekend everyone. Share a smile and see what you get in return :)
