To Market, To Market
Tuesday, April 09, 2013      2 comments

I was reading a blog and someone was describing their market experiences, so of course I took another trip down memory lane and hunted up pix from my Peru (and a few Ecuador) market experiences. So here's my little travel-log! Iquitos fish ... Read more
"Nina" Has to Show Baby Pix
Sunday, April 07, 2013      2 comments

When I had my first grandchild over 10 years ago, I was going to be called "Nana" to distinguish me from the other Grandma, but my granddaughter at the age of two decided to call me Nina (Spanish i - like Neena) so as not to confuse me with a BA... Read more

Tonight I'm picking up the student who's come with me to church a few times, to take him to youth group at church. At my previous church, while my son especially was a teen and he was involved, I would take him and stay, and got to know the kids... Read more
Fun at Zoos
Thursday, April 04, 2013      4 comments

Today it's supposed to be in the 50's (F of course) and less overcast, and we're still on our Spring Break. So we might go to the zoo. I haven't been to our local zoo in AGES. But that's not to say that I haven't been to ANY zoo. In fact, t... Read more

I love working among young people. I am so blessed to have my present job as Teacher Assistant in a local high school. When I go on missions, I like to connect with the youth in the churches I visit. I've formed some wonderful friendships and ta... Read more
Meals and Memories
Tuesday, April 02, 2013      4 comments

I do enjoy food - which is why it's hard to lose weight. It's not just the food, though - it's the company. Jesus asks us to remember Him when we eat and drink - and eating and drinking with loved ones is a time for building good memories. I was... Read more
More Memories - Soldados de Espera
Monday, April 01, 2013      4 comments

In the summer of 2007 I made a brief trip down the river from Iquitos, Peru, to revisit some of the villages I'd visited in 2006. My companions were different, however. I had my good friend Marleni, my spiritual son Abel, a good friend and music... Read more
More Memories - Hammocks
Sunday, March 31, 2013      5 comments

I'm facing probably hip surgery this summer, and I'm thinking it may make sleeping in a hammock inadvisable. So I'm thankful for the memories I have associated with my hammock experiences. They began that same summer, in 2006, when we traveled b... Read more

from Anne of the Island (by Lucy Maud Montgomery) [Anne's friend Ruby is dying of "consumption" and talking to Anne] "I'm so young, Anne. I haven't had my life. I've fought so hard to live - and it isn't any use - I have to die - and leave... Read more
Oh, NOOOOoooooo!
Thursday, March 21, 2013      7 comments

Today I had the basal cell carcinoma removed - a mild form of skin cancer. It was on my left temple, and so the numbing medication prior to the surgery affected my eyebrow. I was amused that I could now do a Spock impersonation. Here it is for Y... Read more

Unexpected
Saturday, March 16, 2013      4 comments

"Many are the plans in a personís heart, but it is the Lordís purpose that prevails." (Prov. 19:21) And so when I make plans, there is that unspoken "given" that things may turn out other than expected. Biggest illustration was last year's trip ... Read more
