I am a Christian. Non-denominational. I believe that the Bible is without error. Christian life is daily, not Sunday only.
I have been knitting for 5 years. I did have "fear of frogging" for a long time. Now frogging is my friend.
I love to cook & bake. Last year I have even started juicing.
Japanese? Well, I was a missionary there for 6-1/2 years, from late 1986-early 1993. I worked in a coffee shop in downtown Sapporo. The church I helped had 2 shops, one adjacent to the church, & one downtown. I can't believe how time flys!! I talk about Japan, like veterans talk about war. When I moved up here, one of my first bosses was a WWII vet, & he always said, "When I was in France...". I think everyone is sick of me saying, "When I was in Japan...". But those memories will be with me forever!!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.
