When I joined the name "John" was already taken so I just added the the last two digits of the year I was born again to my name. That's how I picked my name for this site.


that's a bit deceiving, most ppl who don't know you, will think it's your birth year.

It has been a long time! I just looked back at my last post in this topic just to see and it was in November! Wow! LoL! Time sure does get away from ya! You just keep thinking, oh I'll get on when I have more time. But then the "more time" never comes! lol! We've had quite the summer here! Been busy with a graduation, church camp, youth rally, 4th of July, BBQ's, Family Reunions, a wedding, becoming an Aunty :clapping: ....and I think that's it! Oh, and having our basement flood in the middle of it all! lol! Just last week I sat down and took the first full breath since May! lol! Boy did it feel good!
Oh and thanks for the happy dance lol

I've been spending much of my time mowing; in fact I have to mow today because it rained yesterday and I couldn't do it then.

Thankfully our Wednesday night Bible studies have kept meeting through the summer and I really enjoy that! We have a church picnic coming up and a new year of AWANA. Our pastor wants Travis to be an AWANA helper this year! He's pretty excited about that.

I know what you mean about getting busy and always looking for time to do something but then it seems that time never comes about. There's always something going on. At least we're not bored!

Great Bible study last night! For the past several weeks it seems the Spirit has really been moving among us. Last week we covered 6 verses and this week we only got through 5 because the teaching of the Holy Ghost really led us to discuss the verses in-depth and to discuss practical applications in our lives.

How I wish more would join us in our Wednesday night Bible study! Typically there are 4 or 5 of us plus our associate pastor. One couple drives 30 miles to attend the Bible study. That's an hour or more driving to and fro to attend an hour of Bible study! Praise God they are willing to do this!!!

We welcomed 10 new members into our church last Sunday! What a blessing. Eight of them were baptised the Sunday before in a baptismal service after church. The other two who joined our church had been biblically baptized years ago and had attended our church for several years before finally deciding to join. These two were a mother and her grown daughter. I think the mother had hoped their old home church, which had took a worldly turn (which is why they left), would be rescued by a new pastor but that never happened. Anyway, I think that's why the hesitation to actually become members of our church even though they had been active, faithful members for several years.

In any event, so wonderful to see so many added to our membership. Praise God!!!

Hi John! Hope you're doing well! I think about you every now and then and also wonder how your son is doing. I don't suppose you do facebook? We got tickets to fly home to the states for a few months - will get home on November 23rd which is also my dad's 70th birthday. Parents aren't supposed to be that old!! Things are going very well here now. Am very busy with my hubby and our 3 girls. The oldest lost her first tooth yesterday, and the baby is now 5 months old. Well, later gator! :)

So great to hear from you! I miss our chats and fun in the fun and games forum back in the day. Recently I noticed you had been here and I said a prayer for you and your family.

Our oldest son went through several months of very serious rebellion earlier this year but after much prayer from our church and great biblical effort by others, he is doing better now. He's passing all his classes and seems intent upon doing right.

It's hard to believe your children are that old already. It seems like just a month ago your little girl was tugging on your leg and you were awaiting your new baby to arrive. Now you have a 5 month old! Praise God for His wonderful blessings!

Oops, I didn't realize it was this late. I need to go so I can visit my dad and help him get his mail and stuff. He turned 71 this year so I know what you mean about parents getting old. That's great you will arrive on your dads 70th birthday!

After while crocidile!

Hello! It's been awhile! So exciting to see how the Lord is moving in your church, John! A few of the ladies in our church and I are in the very beginnings of starting a girls club type thing and it's so exciting to see how the Lord is pulling it all together in His perfect timing! We covet your prayers here! I didn't know about your son. My heart broke as I read what you wrote but I am so glad to hear that he's "on his way back" per say. :-) God is good! Sorry I don't stop by here more often. A crazy Summer really threw off all of my little habits. lol Glad to be able to stop by every once in awhile though. :-)

I'll certainly pray for your "girls club". While we need corporate worship and study, we also need groups where we can grow and share among "our own".

Summer was so hot and humid, I thought it would never end. Then once September got here it seems time has flown! I barely remember September, October or even the first half of November! :o

It's always good to hear from year whether often or every now and then. You are in my prayers.
