This and That

So little time for blogging these days . . . but here's some updates!

  • Samuel has reached, in his sweet 19 month old mind, a pinnacle of accomplishments. He can climb to the top of the dining room table. (Mom needs to be a little more on top of making sure everything gets cleared off the table after breakfast!) We grabbed camera and giggled as we watched him truly enjoy himself for a "second breakfast"?

Hallelujah, I've made it to the top of the table!


Ahh! it's the sugary good stuff!

Second breakfast!

  • We have shared with some of our friends from church about God's leading in our lives to the Italian Brazilians of Caxias do Sul, Brazil, and our process of appointment with the International Mission Board. Those with whom we have been able to get one on one with so far are encouraging and supportive, but at the same time a little saddened to lose pastor and pastor's wife, and of the future long-distance friendship vs. the close fellowship we enjoy now.
  • QUESTION: Are you as disgusted as I am in Bush calling on Israel to end their "occupation"? In case you've missed this, check out this story . There is also an interesting post on a blog I frequent that gives what this "request" specifically means for Israel.
  • Here is a great way for memorizing Scripture. You join for free, pick your program or design your own program for Scripture memory. Then you receive an email daily to help you in learning the verse you're on (1 verse a week). If it is a verse you already know, you can advance to the next. The brilliant way to use this is to review, review, review. I'm in my 6th week of using this program and have memorized 10 verses so far. There are many other tools out there for reading, studying, hearing and memorizing God's word that are free.
  • And, last of all, "Dance, Dance Revolution". We are PS2ers, when time allows, and through Robert's supplemental job he acquired a dance pad and game disc. It is fun . . . although I have proven to my family (I've been telling Robert this for years) that I am the most uncoordinated person when it comes to things like this. It's fun all the same. We have dual dance pads and can compete against one another. (Pictures are forthcoming!)

Dear Kerri,

Thank you for visiting my blog. I didn't realize you read it until you linked back, my bad.

I like what the title of your blog says -- "Adventuring With God". What a great adventure we're having!

The LORD bless and keep you in your missionary work, sister. The Bible says that the feet of those who bring the Good News are beautiful (Romans 10:15 ESV). I pray that the LORD shall work through you and that His glory be manifested when more are moved by the Holy Spirit to be saved.

Shalom Aleichem.

Sicarii,

Thank you for your words of encouragement and especially for your prayers.

I saw this morning's post of yours . . . ."Which Theologian Are You?". Looks fun! I'm getting ready to take the quiz myself!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

You're most welcome, Kerri. I don't know if God has called me for missionary work, but I have a lot of respect for those who are. :-)

I hope you have fun with the quiz.

Shalom Aleichem.
