Hi! I thought this might be a good place to break from Bible Study and give you a brief update. I haven’t been good at this, and will try to post updates more regularly. My study in Romans 9-11 will continue next week, which is best read as a unit as Paul shares his thoughts about Israel and their rejection of Jesus as Messiah.
Thank you for being a part of this study/blog journey with me. I appreciate you!
It’s hard to believe it’s the end of September! Summer and fall have seemed to blur together on a spinning wheel. My kids are growing like weeds. My boys wrapped up their baseball season last June, (they’re both currently in the middle of football and loving it). July was my family’s visitation month:
- Several visits with the nose and eye doctors from my oldest son’s nose break when catching a baseball between the eye and nose while messing around with friends. (I don’t recommend this!) His nose and shiner are now completely healed. 🙂 And thankfully, he didn’t have any serious eye damage.
- Visiting relatives in southern Idaho; my kids are blessed to have cousins their age whom they really enjoy.
- Swim and pony lessons for Annie, my mini clone, budding artist, and social butterfly.
- Lots of visits to my garden: Our Jumbo King corn is taller than our shed, but not as sweet as some varieties. We had lots of apricots this year, so I canned a lot of jam.
With the kids back in school, I’ve had more time to work on a children’s picture book, When Rocks Cry Out. It has been both fun and challenging. The illustrator is my neighbor and friend, which makes the book even more special to me. Although this story is geared for younger children, I think adults will appreciate the deeper allegory of God’s grace. I am looking for honest reviews. If you are interested, please let me know and I will send you a PDF copy. The release date should be within the next 45 days. I will keep you posted.
I hope all is well with you,
