Progress!

Mark picked me up at work this evening and brought me home.  This is unusual because I have usually been getting a ride home with one of my co-workers named Kat, but she had to work later than me this evening.  Mark had to get back to work after he dropped me off, but first he and I had a look at our back yard.

God’s bounteous gifts

This morning dawned a bright and beautiful day.  I believe it actually got up into the early 70’s today.  We went to Friends Community Church where there were representatives from the Gideon Bible Society speaking.  I suggested they talk to my boss who usually puts out Bibles for people to take free if they want.

My son and daughter-in-law are here to visit for a couple days.  This morning they came to see the house and the yard.  Sarah is good at identifying plants and she says she thinks I have grapes and golden raspberries in my yard.  She recommended we wait to see whether they are before we consider pulling them out.

From Kennebec, SD

I can’t remember if I had mentioned that the campground we stayed at last night was Blue Earth Campground.  Nice place!  And the hosts were Sean and Marian.  Nice people!  We stopped on our way out to dump our garbage and Sean came out to wish us well.  I gave him a Christian hug.  I don’t think he was expecting that, but he didn’t object.

From Wausau, WI

After four years of moving around, we have finally learned that we need to make our first day a shorter drive than any of the others.  This is because there is always more to do to get going than we anticipate, and because we stop on our way to load up with paper plates, plastic ware and easy food for the trip.  We have to put everything on our counters (both bathroom and kitchen) into the sinks so it won’t fall on the floor while we are on the road.  Thus, the need for paper plates!

We’re certified!

Our boss is the greatest!  Kathy paid for everyone on staff who wanted to to get trained as a Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA).  Mark and I went through the training today at The Clearing in Ellison Bay.  But first, a woman from The Clearing gave us a tour of the campus. Continue reading

God’s bountiful provision

When I was young, about forty years ago, there was a series of record albums (remember those?) called Environments.  The creator of the albums would go to some remote place like the ocean or a lake during a storm and record the sounds.  Each side of the album would play about half an hour of whatever the microphone caught and for that glorious amount of time, you could be transported there within the confines of your own home.

From Ypsilanti, MI

We only had about a three hour drive east across the state of Michigan today.  Our destination was Ypsilanti which is kind of like a suburb of Detroit.  We’re here for a one day Bible conference that Our Daily Bread Ministries will be putting on tomorrow. Continue reading
