Happy thought of the day: My pictures are back!! Looking through them . . . Oh, that was funny! Remember that place? Smart monkey! Naughty monkey!!! The road was worse than I remembered! Adorable babies! Smelly market! Delicious food! . . . Oh, you’d like to see them, too? *mischievous grin* Give me some time, the posts are coming soon.

Steal of the day: Nice metal skirt hangers for $.20 each (compared to $1.25 for plastic ones).

Quotes of the day: The three rules of speaking: Be sincere, Be brief, Be seated. Preacher on radio
Don’t be an expert in trivial matters. Same preacher on radio

Challenging thoughts of the day: Poem as quoted by Elisabeth Elliot on FOTF’s broadcast today.

*************************************

No Scar?

Hast thou no scar?
No hidden scar on foot, or side, or hand?
I hear thee sung as mighty in the land;
I hear them hail thy bright, ascendant star.
Hast thou no scar?

Hast thou no wound?
Yet I was wounded by the archers; spent,
Leaned Me against a tree to die; and rent
By ravening beasts that compassed Me, I swooned.
Hast thou no wound?

No wound? No scar?
Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
And pierced are the feet that follow Me.
But thine are whole; can he have followed far
Who hast no wound or scar?

By Amy Carmichael

Decision of the day: The digital camera purchase may be closer than I thought a month ago. As much as film developing costs, a digital camera will pay itself off in no time.

Memory of the day: The delicious sweet corn supper from last night. Twenty quarts in the freezer. Boy, do we feel virtuous?!

  1. Not only will the digital camera pay for itself, it will save you a lot of time posting pictures on Xanga.  I can’t imagine having to scan all the pictures I put on here.  I’m looking forward to seeing and “hearing” about your trip.

  2. Yep, I’m anxiously awaiting your posts, too.  And a digital camera is something you’ll never regret getting–just make sure it’s a good one.  (I know you will!)

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment.
