Yes, yes, I am alive! :) The crazy California weather over the past week did not result in a tree falling on my house, or a car accident, or anything else really terrible and tragic. Nevertheless, my wireless internet decided to conk out (I don't think it had anything to do with the weather). This small unfortunate situation is why you have not heard from me in so long. Now that the storms have passed (and my internet has been restored) I will be returning to regular posting. For now I leave you with this simple, but profound truth.
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
