Nominee List and Ballot for the 2015 Academy Awards

Here is the list of all the possible winners in their categories. You can just print this out and follow along. Highlight who you think will win and see you if are correct. The only one I am really rooting for this year is Bradley Cooper for American Sniper. I would love to see anything from this movie win, not just him, including Clint Eastwood for Director.

Don't forget they are this Sunday, February 22nd, on ABC at 7pm.


  Today's scripture comes from Matthew: Chapter 3: verses 16-17- 16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; 17 and behold, a voice from heaven said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased." 

Dear God, Thank you for giving us your son so we have an example to follow behind. Deciding to be baptized is allowing you, God into our lives. A place I only love to be, a world where I want to live. With you as my captain, I can make it through anything! Amen.
