We have much to be thankful for

My mom made an unusual dessert this year: Hot Chipotle Apple Cake. It had a spicy glaze, spiced pecans, and chipotle chili. Kerry made an organic pumpkin pie just in case. Both desserts were good.

As to our thanksgiving. Kerry and I are thankful that my brain is fine - according to my most recent tests! We are thankful for a very generous and unexpected gift, we will put towards a van. Cooper is thankful we have a house to keep us safe. Campbell is thankful that we could all be together for the feast.

A joyful sound

Room F221 at GCC was really in a singing mood today. They were singing with all their hearts. A blessing to hear.

Be amazed

I was out at our local book store with Kerry. I always check to see if they have any John MacArthur books on the shelves; and there within a few inches of the repulsive biblezines was one forlorn copy of the MacArthur Study Bible. It must have been planted on the shelf by a GTY employee or shipped by mistake. Or perhaps the publisher thought a bookstore in John's hometown might be able to sell one. So I wonder who at GTY planted it?

A first

Cooper usually does not finish his burger at In-N-Out, but today he did. All without complaining. The secret is he likes them Morrissette style - bun and meat only. Perhaps In-N-Out will add Morrissette style to their secret menu.

With 6 you get Dr Pepper

At today's lunch they put 3 straws in my drink. I combined them for artistic reasons.

Drink Pink

Two brothers and their pink drinks. Do they serve these in Montana?

Geeks at Rest

A row of geeks resting from their walk around the show floor.


Ellis and Irene have been married 54 years! They have served at GTY as volunteers and employees for more that 9 years. Now they are moving to the East Coast to be with family.

I will miss his humorous ways. I pray God's best as they move on to new ministry oportunities.

I saw this PyroManiac sticker in the wild! Well, not so much in the wild as in the GTY parking lot.

I've got mine, but I'm not sure where I'd like put it.

Time with friends

Kerry's friend Mary was in town to visit with friends. She and her family came out for a Disneyland vacation. Her friends arranged a private plane, hotel accomodations, park addmission, and more.

They enjoyed their time at Disneyland.

Steve said that they were going to "hold court" for their friends who wanted to say good-bye. Their trust in God during these last years has been an example to all those around.

It was a hard time for Kerry.

Awana go home

Last night we took the boys to Awana. We dropped them off, but when we started to leave, the car would not start. It would almost, but not quite turn over. Ted, and Rodney both gave us a push to see if we could jump it, but that too failed. We coasted down hill and pulled into one of the last parking spaces before the driveway spills on the the street.

AAA came, and Rodney loaned us his car so we could follow the driver to the repair shop. We were very thankful that we were where we were when we (I like the way all those "W" words look) broke down.
