One More Week and One Fun Pic

Friday morning. What's up? Things are good here, busy, but good. Rob has been putting in ALOT of extra hours at the Bakery this week. We have completed our first week of APAC, Sophie is taking 3 classes, theatre, music theatre and hip hop. Jack is also taking hip hop. What I wouldn't give to see him shakin' his groove. He came away from class not overly excited about it, but not wanting to drop it either. So we will see. Derek will play flag football with Upward Sports this fall. I think he will start in the next couple of weeks.

I am still reading Philip Yancy's book on prayer. I haven't had alot of time to read this week, so I need to get back in it soon. Here is a quote that I loved.
"I became more convinced than ever that God finds ways to communicate to those who truly seek God, especially when we lower the volume of the surrounding static."
The scripture "Be still and know that I am God." Is one I think on almost each day. I am making strides in finding quiet, lowering the static so I can hear God's voice. This is a daily choice, not one that comes naturally or easily, but the blessings are huge. I read a great write up on a book on Sabbath here. here. I have just started reading this blog and I love it, Anne went to Uganda with the same group as our preacher Phil. Enjoy.

Here is a fun pic I took last night.

Tammy, I love the "M" you are putting on your photos. Really cool!

I also love the pictures of the couple walking on the street. It doesn't look like an Abilene street. Where was the photo taken?
