A Different Sunday

A different Sunday morning. It took a little getting used to for the kids but I sure am thankful that we can still gather with those around the world to worship our Savior.
Since our local church was having some technical issues we watched Shadow Mountain, our church while in San Diego.
Dr. Jeremiah gave a powerful sermon on what we can learn and who we can turn to during these difficult and uncertain times.

    You will keep in perfect peace
    those whose minds are steadfast,
    because they trust in you.
                                          Isaiah 26:3

I pray that this messages will introduce you to the hope and peace you can find in Jesus Christ.

Instead  of flying home she rented a car and drove...she still has her  adventurous spirit!

an early morning farewell
We love you!

God’s Fingerprint in Japan

Is there evidence of a creator God in Japanese history and culture?
This international Telly Award winning documentary does a wonderful job answering that question. We were first introduced to it by Japanese group handing out DVDs at a Cherry Blossom festival in Washington D.C. When we watched God's Fingerprints in Japan we were blown away by the beautiful cinematography and fascinating information. Enjoy!

Happy Purim

Chag Purim Sameach! 

 This holiday celebrates the victory of the Jewish people in Persia during the fifth century thanks to the boldness of Queen Esther.

at the Western Wall in Jerusalem
Though evil designs continuously arise to destroy the Jewish people, God is faithfully working to save His people. 

The Pensacola Chabad Center hosted a Jerusalem themed party to celebrate the deliverance of the Jews. 

Purim greeting.

There are four commands that the Jewish people should fulfill on this holiday.

Reading the Megillah in Hebrew.

Se’udar Purim - a taste of Jerusalem meal.

Hamantash - Haman’s Ears cookies
Mishloach Manot - giving gifts to friends.

Matanot - giving to the poor.

There were also some games to keep the evening lively.

“Do not imagine that you in the king’s palace can escape any more than all the Jews. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?” – Esther 4:13-14

Happy Hinamatsuri

Happy Hinamatsuri to our dear friends in Japan. You are in our thoughts and prayers during these uncertain times.

"coming out of the box
this pair of dolls
I have not forgotten their faces"

We didn't get the kimonos out this year but we did pick up sushi for lunch and then mochi ice cream after dinner as we watched videos from Japan and reminisced about our time there.

Fur Babies

Albert and Capri
Albert got to spend some quality time with Capri, our first fur baby.

Capri is PopPop’s baby now.

Albert also got some time with Lily

 She doesn't usually get along with other doges but seemed to put up with him.

Though she's sixteen she can still keep up.
