"We have so much time, so little to do....

...........strike that, reverse it." - Willy Wonka

Such are these days!!   We just had a wonderful visit with some friends of ours from California this weekend and it was so great to see them. The Armes Family spends their summers at a camp in PA and they made an East Coast trip road trip to visit family and friends before heading back.  They are a family from our old church where Joel was the associate pastor in Burbank.  Sam and their son Brayden were best friends since they were about 3 and picked up where they left off.  Here's a pic taken of the kids taken this morning in age order (kinda hard to tell them apart, huh?):

Well, now it's time to really get things going and I've got to take care of all the little stuff.  I cannot believe we are almost there!! What God laid on our hearts last year ago is coming to fruition!!  Yesterday and next week, Joel is teaching in Sunday school on the topic of adoption and redemption.  What a timely doctrine to be learning.  Our church is called "Redemption OPC" as we are adopted as children of God!  I believe Darya's adoption is a beautiful picture of God's redeeming us and calling us His own.  :-)


  1. I am really looking forward to you getting here. I'll have a list of good cheap restaurants and things to see, and you can pick what you'd like to do. Andrea has all my contact info here, street address & apt #, phone # here. Email her for it. When you know where you plan to stay (which apt) email me through my contact form on the blog. That way I can find you even if you don't have a working phone when you get here.
