Today is Brian's birthday so we went to dinner tonight at Native New Yorker (food not so good) then we came home for cake and presents. We have had a fun family night we sang to Brian then he opened his gifts and we ate cake. We had a tiramisu cake and it was great. Brian has had a good day. We pray God will bless him this next year in special ways because he deserves it. He is the best husband and daddy ever. Join with me as we sing one more time to Brian " Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Briiiiaaaan Happy Birthday toooo you" We love you Brian/daddy.

It's finally here Football season is here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the Millage house this is huge out comes the Steelers and Bears paraphernalia and fantasy football drafts begin I love this time of the year. Will the Bears return to the Super Bowl to claim another victory or will the Steelers be the first team to win 6 Super Bowls? So come Sunday afternoons or Monday nights you will find Brian and the kids and I in front of the TV screaming and yelling and rooting on our favorite teams. I am so glad God brought me a husband that loves sports as much as I do. So as Brian and Joshua root for the Bears Hannah and I will be rooting on the Steelers. Let the season begin.

I am sitting here in the quiet of my house listening to my family sleeping and the words "Be still and know that I am God" keep running through my head. How often do I actually sit still and just give God a chance to speak to me? Life is so busy I am always running to or from something and my time to just sit at his feet is becoming less and less. I am always reminded of Mary & Martha and I would love to say I am just like Mary sitting at Jesus feet hanging on his every word in total awe of him but the truth is I am Martha. My hearts desire is to be more like Mary and less like Martha. I want to sit in the stillness and just listen to God. Maybe it's fear of what he might tell me? I don't know maybe. Lord I need your help remind me to take time to be with you so we can talk. I love you Lord.

Here is a picture of Hannah on her first day of 2nd grade (8/8/07) she was glad to be back in school. She came home excited because she loves her teacher and she made 2 new friends she also got to play with some old friends from last year during lunch recess so all in all it was a successful day. This week she starts Tera Nova testing for placement this year she can't wait because she knows when it's all done she can start math and reading which she loves both. Josh and I are trying to figure out what we are going to do this year while sissy is in school. Will keep you updated.

I am so heart broken for the families of the 6 miners who are trapped in Utah. If they are found dead I am going to be devastated, I have been praying so hard that they be found alive. I think about their families often and what they must be going through. Did these men know Jesus? Are they still alive? If not did they suffer? these questions keep going through my mind. All I can do is pray that Jesus will hold them and their families in his hand and comfort all who are involved. Lord I am asking for a miracle. If it be your will Lord let them find these men tomorrow but if it's not Lord then please bring comfort. Lord once again the words of Todd K. come flooding through my mind "Is Jesus good because of what he does or because of who he is?" He is good because of who He is let us not forget that Lord. Please give us a miracle Lord. I love you.
