You have to ride a Mule

This is short but sweet. Charity and I just took a Mule ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. It was so amazing. We met my Mom and Jerry at the North Rim a week ago and had a rad cabin to stay at. We stayed about 300 feet from the rim of the Grand Canyon. If you ever can go to the North Rim and take the Mule ride. Here is our pic, it was so fun!!!
This is half way down, there is a tunnel, a bridge and a great place to eat some grub down at the bottom by a sweet river.

When will it stop?

I don't know about you but I feel like we live in a society that is just so hurt and so bitter. This last weekend I went down to So Cal because my sister was getting baptized and Charity was in a wedding so it worked for me to fly in late Saturday night. Now this is one of those trips I will never forget. My plane landed in Orange County Airport 20 min early, which never happens. I was sitting on the bench waiting for my brother-in-law, Kevin, to come and get me.

As I was waiting I like to people watch, not sure how you all feel about that, but there was man standing in the close lane and talking on the phone. There was a woman behind him and her ride was pulling in and this man was standing right in the path that the truck needed to get his friend. Well this man on his cell phone starts yelling at the lady and then trying to get in her face, I was appalled. I grew in So Cal and I could not believe the way this man was acting. He was swearing at this women and the man who had come to get her, I was just really shocked at the situation and how someone could be so mad about something so little.

Well Kevin came and got me came a couple minutes later and we started driving back to his house. We were driving and chatting and just catching up. See just about four weeks ago my sister and Kevin had the toughest baby in the world, you just cant call him beautiful because he is a boy. So we are driving and there is man on the other side of the road and it’s dark and he was crossing the street. Well this lady driving starts yelling at him and swearing at him and just going crazy. She like totally slowed down so that he would hear all that she had to say and the dude just went off, there was middle fingers blaring and hate flying. I make it sound funny, but it really hurt my heart to think of all the pain that is in the world right now.

Hume Lake: July 22-28 2007
This year we took our HS ministry to Hume Lake and it was so tight. We had the best week I had had at camp in a long time. The messages that were given were just what I needed to hear. We talked about Daniel and looked at Shadrach, Meshach and Abendigo in a light I had never thought of.
The camp did all this to a Viking theme and made it so amazing. I continually feel honored to work with students and that God would use me. We a handful of students make life changing decisions and it is always a rad feeling to be a part of that.
Thank you Jesus for all I get to do.

Have you ever heard someone talking and they told you: "its all Greek to me."
Well that is how I still feel. I am currently in my fourth quarter of learning Greek and it's so stinking hard. One, of the many things, that taking this course has taught me is that hard things have a great reward. Learning Greek has been extremely hard, but so beneficial. I have learned so much about the original language that the Bible was written in. When you see some of the words and begin to understand what the meaning is and how it was used it really grabs your heart.
I know that most people will probably read this and just go on, but if you ever get the chance to take a Greek class, by all means please do it!!!
