January is half over or is at the mid-way point( for the negative and postive "outlookers").
Our family is well and very blessed.
After a pleasantly cold week in December, in North Carolina with all 9 of us together, we came back closely knit together with many happy and warm memories.
Lectures are approaching and friends are a'coming... birthdays for some of my favorite folks are around the corner... to name a few of the good things coming up.
May God bless you all as we strive to honor Him in this new year.
I am grateful for so many things right now and know that I should have these same thoughts all the time. I am proud of my children and so thankful that God has allowed Paul and I to be the ones to raise them. I have a wonderful husband that love so so much. I have great supportive family and friends... the list goes on and on.
We have had the privilege to attend several of the Thesis presentations and I was amazed at not only the depth of learning these "kids" have experienced but more importantly, the things they have been learning have been held up along -side scripture. I would encourage parents to explore the Liberal Studies program for their young men and women. For the guys - great life training skills and opportunities to use this knowledge in all walks: career, congregations and family. For the girls - if you are interested in God's great world, you can learn things that will help you be a more interesting wife and mother as well as understand His ways in our world... to name a few things!
To see how much the students grow spiritually over four years has been a wonderful privilege. I am not "plugging" sending your kids here, but if you and they want to continue towards higher education, then this school and program are such a great option.
my 6 weird things :
1. I wash already supposedly- washed bagged salads ( using a grapefruit seed extract from the health food store)
2. I am not afraid to have my house unlocked day or night
3. I read AND eat in the bathtub
4. I don't like Harry Potter ( read the first one and am not intriqued, thank you very much)
5. I think Doris Day has a lovely singing voice
6. I typically do not laugh at what everyone else laughs at...
Just saying hello to anyone passing by and hope that all is well with you and yours. We are readying up for 2 graduations and a wedding. Life is good.
