After the Steelers defeated the Rams on Thursday and the Browns loss to the Bengals on Sunday Pittsburgh became the AFC North Champs taking their division. Now if they can repeat a win over the Baltimore Ravens in their final game of the season they can take the number 3 seed for the playoffs. So Merry Christmas Steelers you are once again the division champs.

Steelers fall short

A simple win could clinch their division but the Steelers not only fall short to the Jaguars 29-22 they also don't clinch their division and they lose their first home game this season. If they don't win the next game they could lose first place too. Come on Steelers let's not fall apart now we have had a great season.

Hannah's Suprise

Friday we told Hannah she wasn't going to school because we wanted to spend the day as a family, well much to our surprise she burst into tear and said "I want to go to school I have a spelling test and I am student of the week" I told her I already talked to her teacher and she said it was OK. We told her we were going to look for snow so we could all play. She said OK but was very disappointed whe couldn't go to school. (We were really on our way to Polar Express but she didn't know that we have kept it a secret since April)

We gave her a letter from the Polar Express to read to watch her face as she figured it out and I sat with a camera on her ready to take a picture of her response.

She said this is from the Polar Express and I said yes, she said "Are we going?" Yes we are I told her, she said are you serious. She was so excited.

Then she said this is the best surprise ever. It's OK if I didn't go to school for this, this started a very fun and exciting weekend that I will blog about tomorrow. So the Millage's began their trip to Williams, AZ to ride the Polar Express to the North Pole. to be cont....................

An insight into Esther

My sister is studying Esther just like we are and today I read one of her blogs it really touched my heart, I love the insight my sister has when it comes to reading the word. I thought I would share what she wrote. What a powerful truth. (Don't tell her I took her blog)

Esther 5:1-21 Now it came about on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king's palace in front of the king's rooms , and the king was sitting on his royal throne in the throne room, opposite the entrance to the palace. 2 When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight; and the king extended to Esther the golden scepter which was in his hand. So Esther came near and touched the top of the scepter.Observations: She chose to go before the King properly dressed – in her finest almost as if to show her respect to him and her seriousness of coming.** how do I go before my King? No it’s not about my actual clothes but it is about my actual heart – am I clothed with a state of mind of respect, and reverence.

Example: in my study time I take the time to pray and be still to pray on Gods Armor considering what each piece covers on my body and what that means, to repent if repentance is necessary, I breath just thinking of Him then I read asking Him to open the eyes of my heart to what He wants to show me knowing in faith that He will show me. It’s this little ritual thing I do before I begin in the Word- He didn’t go to her he just holds out the scepter and it is up to her to move towards it and touch it – this must be done before she can speak to him** it’s that picture of us God and the Jesus again – We can not reach God unless He gives us Jesus and we accept it– God makes the first move and then it is up to us to make the next move toward Jesus, but will we reach out and grab it. It’s there for us but are we willing to do it? Or would we rather stay in our current state of fear because we get to caught up in worrying about what it will look like once we grab on to Jesus.J.Vernon McGee calls the scepter “ The Scepter of Grace” - I like thinking about it in that way. For Esther she didn’t deserve it she broke protocol but she got it any way. For us we deserved death but God gave us Jesus anyway. As Christians God is there to give us grace daily and it’s up to us weather we take it or not. - so I ask have you taken your step today toward Him? have you reached out and taken what He has for you this very day? - - don't miss it!!!! - Esther saved a nation what can we do today if we just do our part?Keep Chasing Righteousness!!!!!

Tonight the Steelers played the Bengals and won 24-10. All we need is a few more wins and we could clinch our division. We are on our way. Benny played well tonight but Ward was the man of the hour.
