I stumbled across this picture and don't believe I ever shared it. I love to take photos. I've said this before, I think it's cheap therapy and good exercise, get out and walk around, look for the beauty all around you, it's there if you look. If you do this regularly you'll never need a therapist.

First Family Church, Antioch

I can't thank Pastor Nick Neves enough for helping Peggy and I get through the loss of her daughter Jeanette Anne Thomas recently. Peggy has been going to this church for more than 10 years. When her daughter passed she wanted a service for her and First Family was very helpful. She had a very nice service. I even went to church with Peggy to thank the pastor and pass out the flowers Jeanette got at her service to all the ladies. There regular services are on Sundays at 9AM and 11AM. Visit the website for more information.

Hope everyone behaves themselves this St. Patricks Day and gets some of this.

Note: Next week's SPOTLIGHT will be delivered Thursday 3/19/2015
