Reflections

November first, how can it be? Last night we turned our clocks back after welcoming only one trick-or-treater, and a tiny one at that, to our house. It seems like such a short time ago that our neighborhood was teeming with kids who reveled in house to house visits. Yes, time has passed, and this year it has gone faster than ever. Exactly one year ago on Halloween we brought Mocha into our house. After living on the streets for who knows how long, she only weighed a little more than five pounds. Now, a year later, she's fat and sassy but still not sure whether she and Ginger can be friends.


















Even though we had an extra hour of sleep, morning seemed to come quickly and it was time to hurry off to sing in the church choir. Little did we know the treat that awaited. This morning Ross Hauck, one of the gifted tenors in our choir sang a solo that perfectly supported Scott Dudley's sermon on Moses. I heard Ross tell someone that it was on YouTube and found it. Enjoy, and may it touch your heart, too!

Maybe Mocha and Ginger can be tolerant of each other... and maybe they'll be secret friends.

Ross's solo was good, he has a strong voice! That conversation with God is typical isn't it!
"but..." Thanks for sharing.

Great catching up on photos, news and video clips. How great is technology! The green hat in Jill's blog, as I am sure you knew, was the hat and sweather set I knit. Skipped the flowers. Glad you like it and it fits Annalise.

Hey Judy! Wow! Thanks for sharing the YouTube clip of Ross - what a powerful piece of music and a fabulous, rich voice. Isn't it encouraging to be reminded that God doesn't only call talented, clever people - he uses less-than perfect people to prove just how mighty He is!!! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS
