Today was our shortest travel day so far, but it was our most beautiful as well. I haven’t spent a lot of time in southern Oregon, so I’m guessing at the names of some of the things I pictured below. If anyone can correct me, let me know!Continue reading

Mark and I just got back from watching Jesus Revolution at the theater. Talk about a flashback! I’ve been talking with a young neighbor of ours about what it was like in the “Old Days”…Continue reading
God bless us, every one!
Because we weren’t able to tow the motorcycle behind us on our trip from Oregon to Arizona, on Monday, Mark flew back to Oregon to get his motorcycle and he’s been working on making his way back here by bike.Continue reading
A very family Christmas!
I mentioned at Thanksgiving that I miss the kind of family celebrations we used to have when my older sister, Sherill, was still alive. This Christmas was almost like old times!Continue reading
2nd Sunday of Advent
This morning, I went with Mom to Rise Community Church again. The sermon was about John the Baptist preparing the way for Christ. John had an unusual style of preaching. He called his listeners a brood of vipers and said that the axe was ready to cut down the tree to be burned, but since it had been 400 years since the last prophet, people flocked to John to find out what they needed to do to be prepared for the coming Messiah.

The first day of Advent

As you can well imagine, I have been doing a lot of thinking about the fire and I have a testimony to share. I’ve been thinking about how the engine kept exploding and spewing out molten stuff as it burned. If it had done that while the truck was still attached to the RV, the RV could have caught fire.

From Salt Lake City, UT – with a slight mishap…
Mark and I had just crossed the border into Utah and been driving on Highway I-80W when a bunch of cars started honking at us as they drove by. I asked Mark, “Why are they honking?” He checked his rearview mirror and said, “We’re smoking.” He pulled over to the side of the road and got out, then opened the door and yelled, “The truck’s on fire! Call 911!”Continue reading
A week or two ago, I noticed a tree full of apples at my church, so this morning, I wrote to my pastor to ask if I could pick some and he said I could. I was coming from my job at the Noble House, so I was in costume.Continue reading
