three random things

1. Drove by the bank on the way to work today. The electronic scrolling sign said, "-14 degrees." And then it scrolled up and said, "Need a vacation loan? Inquire within." A+ for their marketing.

2. When we were driving home on Saturday we had this conversation: "one year ago today we were driving our uhaul to Nebraska." "wow. was that a year ago today? exactly?" "yep. exactly." "When does our lease expire then?" "oh, good point. today." "do you think we should renew? because I think we should see if there is a bigger apartment on the non-parking lot side available for the year. maybe ask Jerry when you call him next." "okay."

Fast forward three hours when we're home and bringing our suitcases in. Rory calls Jerry. Jerry says apartment across the hall is open and unlocked...we could go see it. We go. We tell Jerry we like it. Jerry says it's yours...just be out of #305 by Tuesday morning so it can be painted. I say, "we're going out with your brother on Monday when he's in town for business." Rory says, "we better get moving then."

So we moved our apartment on Sunday in six hours. The apartment we moved to is literally right across the hall, and every single possession was moved in 2 laundry baskets from one cupboard to another cupboard across the way. In the world of moving, this is the way to do it. No stairs, no moving trucks, no boxes. A+ for efficiency.

3. I'm really excited about the interest for joining the Beth Moore study. If you're on the fence, give it a whirl. You're basically only committing to taking some personal quiet time each day for yourself. And that can only be a good thing. A+ for growing in faith.

I'm doing Beth Moore's "Jesus the One and Only" right now. I'm only on week two, but I'd recommend it. We'll be looking for our next study soon; would you let me know which of these you choose and what you think of it? Thanks!

Wow-way to go on the moving! Can't get much better than that! So, does this have room for all the Jags if we take a road trip? ;) On a side note, our group just finished with B.M.'s Esther study. I really liked it. Now we are onto a new book called, True-Faced(not Beth). Good luck with your study.

Nicki...I have the 90 day reflection journal for Jesus the One and Only and love it. It has taken me over two years to do the 90 days, and pull it out whenever I need a pick me up. It's good stuff.

I have already done Believing God and know that I already recommend this one. And I did Esther this summer and it was fantastic too. These studies just help me stay accountable to reading my Bible and thinking about God's bigger picture. It's all good stuff...
