Funny incident: Two days ago we had an unexpected visitor. A stray chicken from our neighbors came walking around our property! What a surprise and commotion it caused! My mom chased it and caught it before it could get on the road and get run over by a car. We didn’t know where to put it, because it would quickly run away. So we had to make up a temporary chicken coop, feed it and give it water. It got quite comfortable in our coop, although it tried evading at first. Finally we hopped in the car and drove around asking neighbors if they lost a chicken!
Something delicious: I’ve regressed to childhood lately. But before you judge, let me tell you that it is quite healthy, low calorie and irresistibly delicious! For breakfast I’ve been having some delicious organic cocoa bunny cereal. I cannot stop eating them!
Currently Reading: The Boys in The Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Olympics. It’s an interesting and inspiring story. I almost wanted to take up rowing (on a rowing machine) as a great way to exercise! But then my dad pointed out that rowers get really bad spine problems and joints (shoulder, hip etc.) injuries, so I quickly changed my mind. I’ll stick to running, thank you very much. Have any of you read this book?
Goals for this blog: On a napkin, sitting in the car one day, I prayed and scribbled some notes with my blog in mind. I had a flow of blog post ideas that I just kept writing down on that napkin. So now I have a whole list of exciting things to put up here, but I want to save them till I transfer this blog to a new domain. What are your feelings about this move, as readers? Does it sound exciting or not?
Pondering on Scripture: I just finished the book of Exodus about 1 week ago. I am now in Leviticus. I was impressed by the artisans who built the tabernacle of meeting, because I am an artist myself. The chapters said how they did everything exactly as ordered and they did it to perfection. One of the chief artisan’s name was Bezalel. I looked up his name and it means “in the shadow (protection) of God”. How beautiful is that? I have pondered on that name often since then. One time it even brought a lot of comfort to my heart when I had a bout of worry, and then the name came to mind and I was reminded how I am under the protection of God Almighty because I am His child. What have you been reading from Scripture that has been encouraging?
Hymn in my heart: I’ve enjoyed singing this hymn lately “I Heard the voice of Jesus say“. Very expressive, rich and comforting hymn. What music has been inspiring you lately?
If I could: I would head out and travel. I would go back to visit Colorado and nestle deep in the mountains for awhile and smell the alpine air. I want to see the Ark built by Ken Ham in Kentucky. Have any of you been to the Ark yet?
This weekend: I am attending a neighbor’s annual fall bbq gathering on Saturday and look forward to my sister’s delicious marble cake. I’m also applying to a job and praying that God’s will be done. I am also tidying up the yard a bit, and it’s quite nice to see fall coming around although I do miss summer. What are you doing this weekend?
