Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Connecting the Dots!

While getting ready to go to the weekly meeting at the nursing home just half a block away, DJM and I had the following conversation:

I: Are you going to sit still while I talk to the Papas and Grandmas about Jesus?

DJM: Yah.

(As I finished dressing him, I could see the wheels turning in his mind.)

DJM: Do you have one?

I (looking puzzled): One what?

DJM (smiling shyly, in a whisper): A Bible! [sounds like /uh bah-boh/]

It was one of those extra-joyful moments when, as a parent, I realized he was connecting the dots: We need to use The Bible to tell people about Jesus! Though DJM didn’t know it, that was exactly the point I was planning to make with the folks at the nursing home...

One of our little co-workers, hard at work,
setting out hymnbooks on the very literal
end of the benches – just as hed been asked!

That's great! Hope you guys are feeling settled in there. It's wonderful being able to keep up through technology. :-)

Great to hear from you! I, too, am thankful for technology (although this blog has been woefully abandoned...)

"Settling in" is taking longer than I often wish it would (logistically), but we're thankful to be getting settled into ministry...

Miss you lots!
