Welcome Back Everyone,

I was thinking about you just now. I appreciate all of you, your interest in my blog, and your patience in putting up with my perspective on life.

Thank you. Sincerely, thank you.

We've Started NT Greek

(But most of it's still Greek to us.)

Dad's notes from Lesson 1, when Mr. Einwechter gave it to us straight. Problem is: we were already signed up.

Alpha, Beta, Gamma...

(You know - A B C - that sort of thing.)

So, Dad, what is the future active indicative third person plural of λυο?

Dad often impresses us (in the forceful sense) into helping him drill and then impresses us (in the admiring sense) by how much he knows.

As we labor over Greek, Mom is (rapidly) making her way through the new Lamplighter books.

Oh, to once again read an English novel...!

A Baptism

Five young men and women declaring the most important decision of their lives.


(Had to show off my Greek, as inadequate as it is.)

Grandfather and grandson.

"Buried with him in baptism...

...wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead." -Col. 2:12

Candace, push that record button because...'s Faith's turn.

This sister of mine has, by God's grace, begun the journey of living out her name.

"The faith that saves is the faith that submits to baptism." -Mr. Einwechter

Another daughter who had the rare privilege of being baptized by her own father.

"For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ." -Gal. 3:27

Mariana has put on Christ...

...and I do believe Mr. Oberholtzer has put on dry clothes.

Naomi, who helps with Phares and keeps him out of trouble.

I didn't say: out of water.

Friendless? Forlorn? Maybe even ostracized?


Sunlight and spaghetti - both brightening this little face.

And we'll end with dessert, as does every good fellowship meal.

God Bless.
