For the last few weeks my friend Keri Novacek has been working on a mural in Cam's room.  We think it turned out great and as you can see from the pictures he is one satisfied customer!!

Keri is an amazing artist.  She basically traced an outline on the wall and then did all the detail work freehand.  If you live in the Omaha area and need any painting done (she can do anything), she's your gal!!  If you know her you can contact her directly or you can contact me for her information. 


Have you ever read the entire Serenity Prayer? Of course we all know the beginning, but have you ever actually read (or heard) the whole thing?


The first part the "world" can agree with. The second part....not so much.

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and
supremely happy with Him Forever in the next.
