"Brothers to Brothers."
for today: Psalm
119:1-2, Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in
the law of
the Lord! Blessed are those who keep His

the whole heart!
Last night Benny and daddy went
swimming. We had a
great time in the pool. After swimming, we went shopping. Tonight we
plan on going to the observatory again. It is cloudy this morning. Hope
the skies clear up by this evening. Last time we were at the
observatory, there were too many clouds in the sky. The object for
observation tonight is Mars,
be closer to Earth than usual,
but not quite as close as in 2003 (just under 35,000,000 miles).
Tonight Mars is around 45,000,000 miles away from Earth. See the links
below for interesting links about Mars and astronomy ---

of 38th Parallel
Last night we went to the observatory.
There were four high powered
One of the telescopes that
somebody brought was about 100
years old! The best telescope last night was a 3 1/2 inch. We got a
good look at Mars, the Andromena Galaxy, the Pleides, Polaris, and
various other stars. Dr. Lubke was
sharing his knowledge of astronomy,
which is always interesting. Dr. Lubke told us of another observatory
where we should be able to see Mercury! Mercury
never gets any higher
than about 25°, which makes it very difficult to see.

November 10-13, 2005--
Thursday, Ben, Dara and daddy went swimming. Saturday the boys visited
their mother. I had a nice long chat with great-great-aunt Ruth for
about an hour and a half. Aunt Ruth is such a great encouragement. She
is still active in the Salvation
The Salvation Army has been in
Missoula, Montana, for over one hundred years! Picked up the boys about
3:00. We went to church early to help prepare the refreshments, as
usual. Service was great! Benny earned 25 Bible Bucks. Sunday, the
three of us went swimming, after working
out. Dara and Ben climbed the
rock wall while I worked out with weight and machines.
for today: Psalm
71:3, 5, 8, 12, 14-16, 19-20, 23: "Be my strong refuge, to which I may
resort continually; You have given the commandment to save me, for You
are my rock and my fortress. For You are my hope, O Lord God; You are
my trust from my youth. Let my mouth be filled with Your praise and
with Your glory all the day. O God, do not be far from me; O God, make
haste to help me! But I will hope continually, and will praise You yet
more and more. My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness and Your
salvation all the day, for I do not know their limits. I will go in the
strength of the Lord God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of
Yours only. Also Your righteousness, O
God, is very high, You who have
done great things; O God, who is like You? You, who have shown me great
and severe troubles, shall revive me again, and bring me up again from
the depths of the earth. My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing to
You, and my soul, which You have redeemed.

Praise God, for another great time at Celebrate
Recovery! Two of our
neighbors went with us. As usual, the worship was great. The music is
reviving and refreshing. A married couple from another Celebrate
Recovery group gave their testimony. I found a group to meet with. Lots
of guys shared their stories. There were several guys who were at the
meeting for the first time.

Testimonies (Testimonies how P.O.D. has been a blessing)
for today: Colossians
3:2, 10, 12-17: "Set your mind on things above, not on things on the
earth. And have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge
according to the image of Him who created him. Therefore, as the elect
of God, holy
and beloved, put on tender
mercies, kindness, humility,
meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one
another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ
forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on
love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in
your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be
thankful. Let the word of Christ
you richly in all wisdom,
teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual
songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you
do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things
I cannot change, the courage to change the things
I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment
at a time; accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it.
Trusting that You will make all things right if
I surrender to Your will, so that I may be reasonably
happy in this life and supremely happy with You
forever in the next.

This morning is sunny, pleasantly
cool (in the high 40s?). Helped out with preparing refreshments again
at church. The service was uplifting. The message was titled, "Why
Give?" from 1 Samuel chapters two and
three. After the service we went
to the YAC to say good-bye to one of the pastors who is moving to
Florida to plant churches. We will miss you David! God bless. Had a
good time of fellowship. Dara got to chat with David about Toby Mac.
They went to school together back in Virginia.

Went to singles Bible study this morning, then to the 2nd service. Ben
went to the service today, and Dara stayed with us too. He didn't want
to go to the youth group this morning. After church there was another
going away party for David! About two hundred (or more) people showed
up to say good-bye to David.
Sunday evening, we went to a concert at

for today: Romans
5:1-4, 8-9 -- Therefore, having been justified
by faith, we have peace
with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have
access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope
of the glory of God. And not only that,
but we also glory in
tribulations, knowling that tribulation produces perseverance; and
perseverance, character, and character, hope. But God demonstrates His
own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners,
for us, much more then, having now been justified by His blood,
shall be saved from wrath

The youth group is hosting a party for their leaders tonight. The kids
look like they are having a great time. They are eating pizza and other
goodies, and watching Christian music videos. I got to meet Joel. We
chatted a bit about some of the rock and metal Christian bands.
November 22, 2005 -- Went to Celebrate Recovery. They
were serving barbeque chicken and hamburgers tonight. All the kids had
a Thanksgiving dinner. Another great night of worship and Bible
teaching. Went to the men's group. Lots of sharing and reflection on
God's grace and mercy. One of the guys from Celebrate Recovery died in
a car accident on the weekend. One of his friends spoke at our men's

November 23, 2005 -- Had my first assignment in preschool
today, which was a complete surprise. I was told that the assignment
was Special Ed. The kids were pretty good though, and there were only
13. Quite a few kids have been very ill with the flu and scarlet fever!
Tim invited us to spend Thanksgiving with him at his sister's place.
