Our last update was getting so long, we didn't bother to include anything about Thanksgiving. A family that lives in our Juxt, our market town, invited us to celebrate with them and some other Americans. So here are some pics of our day. Hope you enjoyed yours!
Sing Praises to the LORD, O you his saints and give Thanks to his Holy Name for his anger is but for a moment but his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night but joy comes with the morning. Ps 30:4-5

- I met Jesus in March 1997 and soon after I began the practice of writing things down that were happening in my life with the Lord. Over the years, in the rare times that I have looked back into older journals, I have found that the things the Lord was showing me then are the same things He is showing me now. This does not make them less helpful, on the contrary, it makes them more helpful. God is exactly who He says He is and is doing all that He said He would. We need to be reminded of God and His faithfulness. The intention of this blog is to encourage God's people to continue and to grow in their confidence in Jesus Christ. The things posted here are from my journal and are meant to be an example of God's love and help as He loves and helps me. I would expect that you would have reason to trust Jesus Christ with your life (and death) if you haven't heard about Him so I invite you to go to my page "About Jesus" to see why you can and should have every confidence in Jesus and Jesus only for all things.
