Life is good

Hello world. Here's a quick update about my summer. I've been working full-time and training a new coworker for about the last month. Thankfully I'm back to part time so I can enjoy hanging out with friends and preparing for Baylor. I leave in less than a month! A great highlight to my summer was Amy coming to roadtrip with us for the 4th of July. We went down to the Guadalupe river and stayed in Brad's parent's river house with his whole family and several friends.

I liveth

I've been accused of abandoning this blog. I normally only post when I have new pictures and I just haven't taken any pictures in a long time. Plus, school is keeping me in a state of overwhealmedness. Yes, I just made up a word. . .

I just must remember that as I've heard quoted, "God does not call the qualified; He qualifies the called." I just so happen to be in the getting qualified state. . .

and more walking. . .

Lately it seems that the verses that speak the most to me involve walking. Faith in God truly is a journey and I think that the metaphor of walking is used so much in the Bible because it reminds us that each and everyday there is something for us to do. We cannot stop and sit down every moment of everyday we must walk with God and follow in His paths.

"He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" Micah 6:8

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." Proverbs 3:5-7

"I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness. When you walk, your step will not be hampered, and if you run, you will not stumble. . . Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of the evil." Proverbs 4:11-12, 14

"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns." Isaiah 52:7

"You shall walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may for well with you, and that you may live long in the land that you shall possess."

Deuteronomy 5:33

"Eventhough I walk in the falley of the shadow of death, I will far no evil, for you are with me; your rod and staff, they comfort me." Psalm 23:4

"No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly." Psalm 84:11 b

"but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

"But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and hte blood of Messiah his Son cleanses us from all sin." I John 1:7

walking. . .

Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.

So, when you take an international trip it seems people want to see pictures of your adventures. Too bad I never got pics of being stuck in airports for hours at the beginning. I was too lazy to dig my camera out. :) This time in Israel we didn't do as many touristy things and spent more time getting to know people and trying to find a laundromat. The latter we succeeded in as we wear leving to go to the air port. Go figure! Here are some pics of the highlights.
The Fam at Azrieli in Tel Aviv our last day in Israel
Wonderful sign in Shilo :)
This sign says "Shilo" and is at the entrance of the city
David and I at the Airport.
I saw this sign in Bet Shemesh. Who knew there was a branch there? I didn't see anybody playing "jungle" though
At the Mall in J'lem dad found a random screw on the floor and declared he found the problem with the middle East. "There's a screw loose!"
