I am feeling better today, though not 100% yet.  Not too much I want to do today luckily.  We are home from church.  The sermon today was very good about community and the strength in the Christian Community.  I so agree with that, I think our faith has grown since we have been more of a part of the community of our church.  Instead of being one of those memebers who show up for SUnday service occassionally and that is it.
