The Ross Bed-N-Breakfast

Beverly and I feel so honored! Our precious daughter-in-law Kayci gets together with seven of her old friends every year around MLK, Jr. Day. When she and Josh were here over the holidays, right before they left Josh asked Beverly if she could come to Houston and help him with Truitt while Kayci was gone.

Well, they must not have gotten too far down the road when Beverly received a call. It was Kayci. She wanted to know if she and her friends could retreat to our house! Isn't that cool?

So, for about a year we have had a leak in the shower upstairs. We never use it -- it only gets used when we have company. Plus I was having a hard time locating where the leak was. Well, this weekend I think I got it figured out with the help of a plumber-friend. So I am trying to have it fixed before the "girls" get here this weekend.

I preached about the reality of Hell yesterday. To imagine a place that is totally void of God and all God is makes me SO grateful for my Substitute.

I'm also glad to return to the subject of Heaven this coming week.

Rick - you may not remember me, I think the only time we've met was at Josh and Kayci's wedding. Anyway, I will be one of the girls at your house this weekend! I noticed in your blog that you said seven of her college friends, there are 15 of us in all so their maybe a little more that what you are expecting! (but nto everyone can always make it) We are excited that you are willing to host us! Thanks in advance and I hope that we don't get too loud! Oh, thanks for fixing the shower too!!

Glad you got the shower fixed. That could have been a huge mess with all the "girlies"!

Are you doing all the cooking? Will football be banned? I think I would have a nervous breakdown!

If we're going to extol the virtues of heaven, we need to talk about hell. There are not other alternatives.
