Make a Smilebox slideshow

I was having difficulty creating a slide show on my computer as it's having problems. For a few years I have wanted to create slide shows of our year in retrospective as a way of scrapbooking for us and distant relatives and friends. Here is my first creation. It did take hours...and the program is unfogiving of red-eye so I had much adjusting to do.

Part of the site is free and a year subscription is 40.00, but seems to be on sale now for 30.00.

Our year in photos...

I discoverd this really cool site called SmileBox. It made my objective of creating a slide show of our year quite easy

Culture War?

My husband mentioned something earlier to me that struck me as quite profound. We often think that the war is against Satan- God vs Satan -and we need to help God win. He pointed out that if it were God vs. Satan it would have ended before it began. The war is ,instead, for the hearts of man. It is a rescue mission, not a war. If we Christians are living as we ought to, the effects will seep through the fabric of culture. The quiet workings of God in our lives will impact those around us. We won't need to force -through war of any kind.
While God does not need our help to acheive his purposes- our living rightly certainly can't hurt His purposes. There are enough wars. Wars are not attractive. Peace is. God's peace most of all.
I'm still chewing on this...
