We are reapairing our house and hope to have it done soon. We will be leaving for a new city/post in Brazil. We will be moving soon to the hotter climates. I do not dread it but do not look forward to the heat. I am sure we will face many new challenges but also know we will meet some new people who have been waiting for our arrival.
Those folks who are waiting for us do not know we are coming, neither have they ever heard of us, but the Lord is directing our steps and HE will lead us to those very people. I guess I could say they will have a "meeting with a new way of living" when they meet us. Well, that is the wayI am looking at it. There is good in everything if we will only look for it. Even in a move to a far away place.
John the disciple was in the spirt on the Lords day and he was exilled to the isle of patmos for a very long time. Yet, he was in the spirit on the Lords day. So, I take that as meaning no matter where I may be, I need to be "in the spirit and always feel God's presence in my life.
God is near and HE is good.
Love to all of you who bother to read my thoughts.

Some people are lazy and their shoes never get much use. they use slippers as they don't go out much. Others need many pair of shoes as they do lots of work, go lots of places and use each pair till is nothing left to be used.
My husband is a man who has many jobs each day. He is always busy and never quits. He enjoys work and can lay down at night feeling that he gave the day his very best.
The shoes in the picture were throw away before we left for Brazil. Our wonderful son took them out of the trash and took a picture of them for us. He wanted his dad to never forget these shoes. They were well worn,dirty and smelly as they had been used for months doing a lot of jobs getting ready to pack up and leave for Brazil.
Let these shoes be a symbol of those who work hard and leave a lot for others to do the same. Hard honest work never hurt anyone and perhaps these worn out shoes will spur someone on to do a better job than usual.
I will save this picture. They show me a man who gives his all to whatever he has to do.
He will go from handy man to minister again in Brazil. May God always have someone near by to fill these shoes when he can no longer walk the journey.
Thanks for reading my thoughts.

Having a heart right with God is the most important. I thank God for all HE has done, is doing and will do in my life.
Today is a great day to be thankful!
I am glad I am alive.
Just my thoughts about today.

She is a teacher at West highschool in Tracy, Ca.and teaches in three languages when needed.
Living in Brazil for the most part of her life has helped her to learn many things that the usual student in public school in American does not get the opportunity. Learning another language is one of those opportunities.
We are wishing her the best day ever as this is her special day.
We also thank the Lord for each day He has allowed us to be a part of her life.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RACHEL.
We love you.
Mom and Dad

She is 7 years old (going on 15) and is a wonderful girl. She is loved by those who know her.
Congratulations to Vanessa.

He is now offficially 67 years old. He has earned all the white hair on his head; believe me.
We almost started a fire with so many candles. :)
Having the children around always makes for a jolly celebration as they think everything is wonderful! If I had known that grandchildren could be so wonderful, I think we would have had them first instead of the children we had. (just joking)
It is good to be alive today and good to celebrate with a man I have lived with for over 46 years. Maybe I have been responsible for some of those while hairs on his head. No doubt about that.
God is good and now I must go to bed. Once more it is past the witching hour and I am still up. Good night to all.
