I took a bunch of photos while in Mexico today for our new camp dedication service thingy. I know it is a lot, but I don't like having to pick which pics don't make the cut. So I am putting all the ones I like up. Enjoy, or should I say, "Disfruta".
Sorry for overriding your post, bob.
Here is a pic of Josiah demonstrating his supreme balance while holding a shark in one hand and a lizard in the other! Wow! I can't say that I am capable of that. All the while Luke is intently working on his lesson for the evening's bible study.
Thought I'd share a pic of my monitor mojo, Sparky. I name every little trinket deserving of a name "Sparky". I had a dashboard mojo for a long time on my '77 Toyota, he was a goldish yellow coloured deer with posable limbs! His name was Sparky.
Anyhow, notice the club, which is actually a bone fragment, Sparky has in his hand? That is for protection against monitor thieves, like the cleaning crew. When you have a 21" Viewsonic monitor, you better have some protection! These babies retail around $500.
If it looks like an odd tumor growing around Sparky's face, set your mind at ease because that is just his warrior bone mask.
Good Morning world.
Ok, so I have been having waaaayyyy too much fun with my camera today, and I decided to take some pictures of one of our favourite lunch-time past times, Mahjongg. If you don't know how to play the game, it is really confusing! If you do know how to play the game, it is more confusing. I believe the game is over 200 years old, and is primarily played by old chinese women (like our bingo, but more confusing ).
This is my wonderful winning 4 faan hand! Seven pairs! It's what I've always wanted to do, and now I've done it!
Stever with a little contemplation?
My beautiful arc layout.
The ever-present Diet Coke.
Jenn trying desperately not to laugh or make eye contact with the camera.
I'll leave you with the quote of the day...

Ok, so sometimes I have too much fun with pictures.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce you to the new Icon of Amor Ministries...
This is a (highly edited) picture I took two years ago in Mexico, I never thought it would come to this.
I love this concept of Blogging. I was a bit skeptical at first, but after reading Katie and Bob's stuff, and writing some of my own, this is really fun. It's like listening to someone talk, that you actually want to hear, rather than just waiting for them to shut up so you can start saying all the things your mind is fabricating while waiting for them to shut up.
I don't even know what I am going to write sometimes, and that is fine, that way my ego doesn't get in the way, as it has a tendency to do. I can just flow in any direction my subconscience wants to take me, I am no longer moving by mind, but by spirit.
I know that is all weird and whatnot, but I don't care, because my logical brain is not talking now, and spirit isn't concerned with how I am percieved, unlike my logical brain. Ten points for the spirit, yeah yeah!
Still working on Phillipians 3:10-11
I want to know Christ
and the power of his ressurrection
and the fellowship of sharing in his suffering
to become like him in his death
and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Every line of these two verses is so weighted that anything other than a line by line explanation is unjust. But, I'm at work, so that will come later
I also finally got a chance to have a conversation with my pastor, Luke, regarding a lot of things that have been on my mind and tugging at my spirit. It was wonderful to finally perge some of what was driving me crazy. We are going to start meeting on a weekly basis, which I am super-excited about. Weird things are happening, I can't explain them, they are scaring the crap out of me, and I love it.
So I went a little crazy while driving 80mph on the freeway and decided to take some pictures. Ok, so I wasn't actually driving, George was, but it is still hard to take pictures when you can't focus from bumps and rain and etc. But some interesting prints came out anyhow, here u go...
All I want is to know Christ and to experience the power of his resurrection, to share in his sufferings and become like him in his death, in the hope that I myself will be raised from death to life
All I want is to know Christ and the power that raised him to life. I want to suffer and die as he did, so that somehow I also may be raised to life.
All I want is to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Arabic Life Application Bible
وَغَايَتِي أَنْ أَعْرِفَ الْمَسِيحَ وَقُوَّةَ قِيَامَتِهِ وَالشَّرِكَةَ فِي آلاَمِهِ؛ وَالتَّشَبُّهَ بِهِ فِي مَوْتِهِ،عَلَى رَجَاءِ الْقِيَامَةِ مِنْ بَيْنِ الأَمْوَاتِ!
Russian Synodal Version:
чтобы познать Его, и силу воскресения Его, и участие в страданиях Его, сообразуясь смерти Его, 1чтобы достигнуть воскресения мертвых.
Louis Segond (French)
Afin de connaître Christ, et la puissance de sa résurrection, et la communion de ses souffrances, en devenant conforme à lui dans sa mort, pour parvenir, si je puis, à la résurrection d'entre les morts.
