  1. We personally do not celebrate it. When our son was little, we would pass out candy with tracts to the kids who came to the door. Josh enjoyed handing it out and seeing the costumes. Now...we still don't observe. We live in the country, sort of, so we don't get anyone knocking on our door. We do, however, have 2 Sunday School girls who love Halloween. Their mother does, as well, and so they look forward to it. They are, in fact going to be gone the next two weeks to their aunt's house, where they will celebrate with a lot of activities. In a way, that takes it off our shoulders of having
  2. I've thought about that, but I hate to have Andrew do it twice. He's busy on deputation, plus he's doing this for some other churches. Hubs got some information Saturday, so we need to just sit down and talk about it to see what we can come up with.
  3. Yeah, I remember the smoke from last year...it blew down from Canada to our area. We did have fires, but not anywhere near as bad as this year. I don't know if you maintain better or not, but it is interesting that the map of fires this year stopped at both the Canadian border in the north and Mexican border in the south. But, then, that's a conspiracy, eh? LOL I'm glad you didn't have to deal with smoke this year.
  4. Thank you! All the credit goes to missionary Andrew Canavan. I've sent him the info/pictures and he's done the putting together. Our church was without a pastor for 5 years before my husband was called. And that pastor was here for two years, we think. But we can't find information that we need to give a basic history, so I'm trying to pick the brains of some that have been part of the church for years. We may have to skip the history and just begin when my hubs became pastor.
  5. Trump was taken to Walter Reed Hospital earlier today, as a precaution. Apparently he wasn't slowing down his work. He'll be there for a few days. He is getting medicine that will help clear it up. I completely disagree that "social" distancing has done anything to prevent the spread of the virus, nor do pieces of cloth. It is my opinion, and it is supported by many in the medical field. Of course, there are others in the field who believe the opposite. I believe in liberty, and I think Americans are smart enough to know to stay home when they are sick.
  6. Tonight Trump announced that he and his wife have tested positive for covid. Now, there are a lot of thoughts on the thing (I'm not convinced it's a pandemic...a virus, yes). But the fact remains that they've tested positive, so we need to pray for them.
  7. Oh, man, that would be so wonderful! I'm sure the borders won't be open til at least November...never if Inslee "wins." But I'd really love to see you again! Heh - the church tour would be a LOT quicker this time around. =D Yes, we are still working on things. There is nothing written about our church history, so it's not an easy do.
  8. We have a website now! Andrew Canavan, second generation missionary to Ireland, is putting it together for us. It is not complete, but it's looking well! I've wanted a website for a while, as I know that many folks use the Internet to search. Andrew and Shawn were with us a few weeks back to present their ministry, and he talked to both my husband and me about designing it for us. I don't think we're going to be deluged with folks, but I do believe it will be a good tool. The website is here: https://lbc-pt.org/ We've had our information in the local paper for a couple of years - ju
  9. As a staunch anti-income tax person, I have no problem with folks claiming every single deduction they can get.
  10. I learned last night of the passing of Bonita Sharp. We met her when she came to college while my husband was in school. She married Gene Sharp and they have had a ministry setting up radio stations all over the world. She leaves behind her husband, 5 kids, sister, parents, and a slew of friends. We know, as Christians, that she is in Glory. She kept her appointment and was ready to go, even though it was unexpected - a head-on collision in a rain storm. But the grief for those left behind is very real, as those of us who have lost loved ones know. Please pray for the family.
  11. I suppose "lesser of two evils" would be the same as "holding my nose as I vote?" heehee
  12. This is what I was referencing before about the power poles, although I wasn't sure that it was happening in WA...it is.
  13. It's raining! Praise the Lord! This is about the normal time of year that the rains begin, but it has been hoped and prayed for by so many of us now! I know it was raining a bit earlier near one of the fires, so I'm sure hoping and praying it rains all over the state (since there is no such thing as a global climate, there is no guarantee that it will rain all over... ), as well as in other western states.
  14. Hmm - I still see some coming across my feed. But I'm not surprised - they've been banning a lot lately. Did you get the notice that starting Oct. 1 they're going to be deciding if people's posts amount to enough to shut down the page? It's Zuckerberg's baby, so he can do that, but ridiculous.
  15. https://katu.com/news/local/man-arrested-after-admitting-he-used-molotov-cocktail-to-start-brush-fire-in-portland?fbclid=IwAR1uHh8Cj354uEtuoc4NPIZoT6diPAcW6wCFJATG0DZH9BQlCWViarMYuXU
  16. Now, along highway 101 - the highway that goes from our area all the way down CA (our area meaning that 101 curves around at our northern most point of the peninsula and heads south) - they have been finding power poles that the wind has blown over...these poles had transformers that popped and fires started. Thing is, at this pint there have been 18 - EIGHTEEN - found that were helped along by chain saws, to weaken them so that the wind would knock them over. That's arson. This graph is interesting...if the fires were from climate change, why do they stop at the borders? It couldn't be t
  17. In WA I believe they've caught 2-4...depending on whom one chooses to believe. They've found strategically placed glasses or glass jars with flammable stuff in them lying on the ground in the areas where the sun shines more this time of year (here something like that wouldn't work right now)...homemade magnifiers that, unless you're looking for arson equipment, you wouldn't normally pay attention to. Authorities believe that they've been placed there to start fires. This is not a new thing, apparently, although I've never heard of it til this year. Yeah, climate change. pffft! Our govern
  18. This video was taken a little over an hour ago in our town. We are on the outskirts of the town. I hope you can see the video.
  19. Global warming has absolutely nothing to do with these fires. Some of them are from human neglect, some from arson, and some from far-too-dense forests that don't allow the oxygen to disperse. Those forests are too dense because liberal "leaders" and eco-terrorists have pushed the idea of not clearing the forests - both thinning the trees and clearing the forest floor of the carbon which acts as fuel to fires that start. Add that to the natural lack of rain this time of year and you have conflagration. Yes, God did give us brains - and we most certainly should use them, not fall for the lies
  20. Well, we've had casualties now, because of the fires. And police have caught folks starting fires. Today the wind has brought the smoke from CA and OR fires to our area. It is not horribly uncomfortable here, for which I'm thankful. Hubs went over to the church, which sits in an area that has been marked as very bad air quality. He still has a lot of painting to do, so I'm hoping it's not very bad right where he'll be. Our governor has declared an emergency (he's become very fond of that since covid). But many, many folk are very cynical - because of his obvious lack of concern for the st
  21. We are literally burning! CA has over 3400 SQUARE MILES that have burned (just to give a little sense of distance, it's 2200 miles from here - Sequim, WA - to Indiana...). OR and WA are also burning. We have lost over 330,000 acres in just 24 hours here in WA. There are fires raging in other western states as well Now, I know someone will probably say that CA is reaping what the government has sown re: closing churches, etc. And that is quite likely. But I do know that it is also a mismanagement of land care by Democrat officials who like to claim environmental care (you know, tree hugger
  22. A number of years ago, we got cheeseburger pizza from Domino's. Not too bad. We even tried macaroni and cheese pizza - it was also not bad. My favorite from them, though, is pepperoni/onion/peppers, thin crust. But we prefer Papa Murphy's...on Tuesday's you can save $3 on most pizza. We like either the cowboy or the papa's favorite. I have had Pizza Hut's taco pizza years ago in Kentucky. It was really very good! The crust was thin so it crunched like a taco, and the toppings were taco toppings. I, too, like my tacos as tacos, but this was actually very good. There is a place here c
