Pastor Raul Granillo: Stronger Than Steel

 Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. (NIV Proverbs 31:29)

Too often, it seems, we only really grasp a blessing long after the fact. I know that in my own life, I have taken many of them for granted. Some of the most important blessings in my life came in the form of mothers who carried loads that I was far too weak or ill equipped to carry.

Let me first say that women are certainly not weaker than men. I have heard that, pound for pound, silk is stronger than steel.

Marina Lopez has a hectic schedule. After working a graveyard shift as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) at Aspen Ridge Lodge in Los Alamos, she barely gets a few hours rest before rushing off to a full day of classes.
 
What the 26-year-old student lacks in sleep, she makes up for in drive and enthusiasm. Her life didn’t always look like this. She had been out of school for 10 years. After realizing that being a high school student was just not for her, she decided to drop out and enter the real world.

I will discuss getting started, a budget, floor planning, architectural details, storage and organization, décor and design, and hiring professionals.

Get Started
Renovating your living room: It’s exciting, but it can be a bit overwhelming, too. Where should you start?

Just One Thing To Do This Week: Establish A Little Discipline

My husband and I have three dogs. I have written about our dogs before. They are all boys, about 70 pounds each, and they think they are human beings. I don’t know where they got that idea. Actually, I do. From me. My bad.

Right now I refer to them as our dogs. When they are funny and sweet and obedient they are my dogs, and when they are wreaking havoc they are his dogs. As in, “your dogs got out” or “your dogs tracked mud all over the house” or “your dogs left you a gift on the carpet.” They are usually his dogs.
