The barometer was invented in 1643 by Italian Scientist Evanglista Torricelli. The barometer measures how much air pressure is in the atmosphere. A very detailed explanation is on Wickipedia that goes into detail on how he discovered this.
In short when we are having low air pressure - weather is getting an artic cold wave. Well Kansas and much of the country is experiencing this right now.
Don't get me wrong I love winter and wouldn't want to live where the seasons don't change. This is us this morning.
A new year is here and many people are making new years resolutions. I steer away from these but wanted to share some of the highlights of our sermon on Sunday.
Aspire to make this a great year-do your very best. It's # 10 of 365 days-what have we done so far and what are we going to do with the rest.
This day started out at 12:00 a.m.--it was still dark, doesn't look like a new day but soon the sun will come out.
There are seven things we need to stop this year.
1. Stop trying to please everyone.
2. Stop living in the past. When the past calls-don't answer, they don't have anything new to say!
3. Stop fearing change.
4. Stop sitting on your faith.
5. Stop believing you don't have a purpose.
6. Stop overthinking everything.
7. Stop beating yourself up over past mistakes.

Excited for what's coming my way and yours too this 2018.
Ladies and Gents this was the year of the zip-up jammies. Here is my daughter, granddaughter and niece in the one-pieces. I got a pair also of the Elf and I gotta tell you these are the most comfortable PJ's I have ever worn!!!!
This was our dress up party--ugly sweaters and just Christmas attire galore!!
The zeal was apparent this year! My nice purchased these T-shirts and adorned them as such:
Each family member had a word for the sentiment.
Hope you enjoyed your Christmas as much as this 27 person party!!!!
