Greetings from Texas!

Well, I was able to get on-line so that I could get some driving directions to meet up with an Aunt and I thought, "you know... I've not blogged in a while so..." Anyway this will be totally 'random' thoughts... If I don't swim the rest of the year I will be fine. We have hit the water literally everyday since we arrived. Even today we will. It's fun and the kids don't mind. On Tuesday my sister-in-law and her husband took us out on their boat (Lake Dallas I am told) and it was fun. The pulled a large tub behind for the kids, but I think I had the most fun. I am sore, but I was able to stay on with speeds up to 30 mph so I'm told. I was going to be sseing both my Aunt and Grand father today but by Grand Father passed away a week ago Monday. He lived a long life (91) and he out lived 2 children and two wives (25 years to each). I love the house architecture here. No other way to say it. And compared to back home! One thing I don't like though... they are right on top of each other in most neighborhoods. Well, I need to get daughter in the tub and a shower for myself. May the Lord be felt among you all. Verse for today: Psalm 91, esv He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say [1] to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—the Most High, who is my refuge [2]—no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot. “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” amen

Better watch out being in Texas too long. It'll grow on you and won't be happy anywhere else. (smiley lol)

It was nice to hear you are having a good vacation with your wife and children!
