This happened last year--school begins and I fall out of the blogosphere for long periods of time. I have no excuse. Here's a little update for the last month or so.
This past Monday marked a special anniversary for us. Five years ago on that day we moved to Washington. Five years?? To a girl who's never before lived somewhere more than about three and a half years that is a long time! God has been very good to our family. I love my adopted home.
I started working on a couple classes. One is an online class with Clark College--"HTML fundamentals." It's been interesting, and I'm surviving so far. My other class is with Whitefield College; it's an Old Testament Survey class that I started last spring but didn't finish. I just completed the reading and lectures, so now on to the research paper, then it will be over.
Last month we attended Ligonier's West Coast Conference in Bellevue. It was really enjoyable. The topic was, "Is There Life After Death?" The speakers were R. C. Sproul, Alistair Begg, and Michael Horton. Considering that the resurrection is such an important truth, and that we tend not to focus on it as much as we should, a conference dedicated to the topic was very beneficial. I wouldn't be able to do justice to what they said, but if you can, listen to the CDs when Ligonier starts selling them!
