Today began with roughing out one more retreat session. *I'M* being blessed and can only pray that others will be too.
I took a chance at 6 a.m. our time, and was able to reach Mom Mary in the rehab center. A great talk. She sounds so good.
I ran up to the base to pay our Japanese vehicle taxes. I was supposed to do this on Tuesday, but Jared had surgery. It went smoothly until I hit the base portion of the party. The current base registration is simply NOT with the rest of the paperwork. Not in the glove box, not in any of the many plastic folders I brought in....gone. I'll have to go back up and take care of that Monday. No one was at Pass and ID as all were at this big tax party. LOL
I got home in time to get school done....Zander read the first 5 I See Sam books while I was gone. We are reading about the Judsons - Missionaries to Burma this week.
Bible Study - We're doing a seven week study titled Anointed, Transformed and Redeemed. I LOVE that it is written by three teachers and the DVDs feature all three ladies: Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore and Kay Arthur. I'm very familiar with Beth Moore and Kay Arthur - it's been fun to meet Priscilla Shirer....and to see the differences in how they teach Scripture...and their obvious respect and love for each other....makes me wonder why their "disciples" seem so hell-bent on forming up camps and getting defensive if someone doesn't like "their gal". ::snort:: Anyway - this was week 2 of Beth's lecture....and it was good....and we'll now have week 2 of her homework.
We had just enough time to go mail a package to Michael (and pick up another one - this one a gift I'd ordered for our training in June) and then on to the nursing home. I love these visits.
Stacia is still a bit shy. I learned the Japanese word for that today - but I've forgotten it already. ::snort::
Living all of life before the face of God...
