Quiet Days

6th February 2008

Things are pretty quiet around here.  Well, except for the nasty line of storms that moved through the South last night.  They pretty much missed us, though all the local channels were in full severe weather coverage when we got up at 6:30 due to tornado warnings south of us. 

Analise has a terrible cough and cold, so we may be headed to the doctor today.  She’s been coughing all night long, coming to our bed to snuggle.  Of course, Josiah’s sleeping pretty darn well.  It seems I just have no "sleep luck".  If one’s sleeping well, the other isn’t.  Blah. 

Brian’s been working tons on school and a map website he’s developing.  We enjoyed a quiet weekend, very much needed.  The Super Bowl was a non-event, since the Packers weren’t playing, but I did really enjoy seeing the Giants pull out the big last minute upset.  Made the Packers’ loss seem a bit more tolerable. 

We also had a friend of Brian’s from UC-Davis come through that evening with his wife, Tim & Emily Williams.  They’re with a missions organization called Frontiers, and it was fun to meet them and hear how God is leading them in their new marriage and work.  Emily spent 7 of her growing up years in Iraq, and because of that, she speaks Kurdish.  She’s working on the translation of the Bible into Kurdish.  It’s crazy to imagine that in spite of all we hear about the Kurdish people in the news from Iraq that they don’t have access to the Word of God in their own language. 

That’s about all that’s going on with us.  Hope everyone’s having a good week!
