Just one more week of March and it looks like I will survive! My schedule at the language school eased up a bit due to some cancellations. Having the 5% Challenge as a focus has also helped - my team, the Firecrackers, are great encouragers. We ... Read more
Yesterday I was looking for a suitable photo to share on my blog. I did a google search for "scream" and there were a bazillion choices, dominated, of course, by Edvard Munch's famous painting (waving at Claudia!).

I'm off to go Nordic walking (may be in the rain?!) and then to the grocery store on the way home, so this will be short.

Progress on my final integrative project! I now know that, if all goes as planned, I will be going to Albania this fall to teach a compact course in a Bible school there. I was able to touch base with the young pastor who oversees the program a... Read more

I have the day free tomorrow, except for a prayer meeting in the even... Read more
Today was kind of a sad day. It was my last trip to my gym. I've cancelled my membership, mostly for financial reasons. I believe I will either be back when I get my tuition bills paid, or that the Lord has an even better plan.
