Anniversary: This month marks the 39th year of marriage to my best friend and better half Dan. That is him above with his lips puckered up for a kiss. Below is one of our fist pictures as a young family.
I couldn’t find a wedding photo to post but, here we are just 5 years into our marriage with our oldest son Jason. (He is about 1 year old here.) We look so young! It shows one of the few times my husband cut his hair. From the early 70′s to just 10 years ago he had long hair, very long down to the middle of his back, he cut it twice during that time for job interviews and then grew it back long right away. We have come over a lot of smooth and rough roads since this picture and we are so happy to still be together and in love.
Now for Bible College: In eight weeks I will have completed my two years of Bible College. I have learned so much and enjoyed my Tuesdays and Thursdays, plus the hours spent studying for test, papers and assignments that actually put into practice what we have learned. It has been a wonderful experience. But it isn’t over yet. I still have seven weeks of class and one week of Easter break.
I have four books to read this quarter. I usually post the book titles but think I missed doing that last quarter, so I’ll post all of them.
Last quarter’s books were: The Incomparable Christ by J. Oswald Sanders, for Christology class. You can find it by clicking the red Christianbook button in the left column of this blog page. Our other book was Handbook of Preaching by Dr. Nathaniel M. Van Cleave, for Homelitics class. Our other classes, Leadership and Ethics/Christianity in the Workplace. had recommended books but I didn’t purchase them.
This quarter we have Unlocking The Abraham Promise by Dr. Berin Gilfillan who is also our teacher. He is in South Africa right now so we have our first three classes by video but it looks to be an interesting class on Evangelism.
The other three classes are King in the Kingdom, Real Christianity, and Christian Counseling. The books, which can all be found at the Christianbook button, are Destined For The Throne, by Paul Billheimer, Celebrations of Discipline, by Richard J. Foster, and The Christian Counselor’s Manuel, by Jay E. Adams.
I know this quarter is going to be a lot of work but I am excited about what we are learning and excited to be in the last quarter before graduation. I may not be back till Graduation because after just the first week of classes I have a lot of reading and assignments but I will for sure be back with pictures of Graduation.
So if I am not back for a while have a blessed Easter. It is my favorite holiday. I love remembering what was done for us. And, enjoy your Spring. Blessings to you all.
