Our Blessed Life

Tuesday, October 17, 2006

This is the face of someone thrilled to finally have the internet again!

Yes, I feel like we're re-connected to the rest of the world. Since we're taking on some new responsibilities at our church (which I'll tell you about in a minute) - we had to have easy access to the internet, so here we are.

Let's catch up, shall we?

Well, yesterday, we had a huge storm come through. At one point, it was raining so loudly, I thought it was raining in the house. Turns out it was! Water was coming in Maggie's bedroom window, pooling up in the window sill, and running down the wall. I thought it'd be a good idea to unplug the lamp from the socket right below the window!

But at least it wasn't a hurricane, right? Other than the small flood we experienced, we've had the usual warm and humid southeast Texas weather.

In fact, here's Maggie in her sunhat, enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon. (For more on Maggie, click on her Baby Blog.)

Well, like I said, we've taken on some new responsibilities at the church. You know we're no longer traveling for Project 237 - but now Jeff is researching and putting together trips and travel info for other folks in our church to take short term mission trips to carry the gospel proclamation to countries all over the world. How exciting is that?

We're also going to be involved in writing sunday school curriculum for our church and our sister churches. An endeaver I'm both excited and anxious about. This is going to be a huge project. Pray for vision and inspiration - and TIME!

Tonight I'm working on Blogs and Bills - while Jeff and our friend Daniel are playing musical couches. We're getting newer ones (yay!) and giving ours to Daniel and Lindsey. So theirs have to be moved out, our old ones moved to their house, and our news ones moved to our house.

Confused? That's okay, suffice it to say that once again, we are blessed. I'll show you pictures of the couches next time. For now, Miss Maggie and I have work to do!
