God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Hello, Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past reposted here, I will begin writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

Loving God in the Moment
Thursday, September 15, 2005
I enjoy a challenge. I learned a new word, while reading the textbook assigned for the eschatology class I am enrolled in, down in the Big 'D'.
Philology: love of learning & literature.
This describes several of my friends and me (I confess… I confess… I confess…). So, would we be philologist? or philologists?
We are gluttonous when it comes to books/reading/learning, etc. This particular textbook has approximately one word per page that requires me to hoist that dictionary, kept beside my 'red chair', into my lap and decipher the meaning. I usually use this reference book because of my dyslexic spelling skills, but it is coming in handy on an entirely new level!
My daughter is joining me in the class. In fact, it was her idea. I grabbed another friend of mine to join us; the ‘girl’s night out’ took on a whole new meaning!
Simultaneously, another friend (a glutton not only for books/reading/learning – but for punishment as well – giggle!) sent me this e-mail last night.
"Wanna know what kicked me during Chaucer class tonight?
That "feeld hath eyen and the wode hath eres."
It is ful fair a main to bere hym evene
For alday meeteth men at unset stevene.
Translation?: Keep yourself in balance because we often keep appointments that we've never made. HMMMMM...."
Now, that is some vocabulary! Not exactly the language I'd expect being bantered about on the lawns of San Antonio!!!!! Como???? (I looked for the upside down question mark and never found it)
Got any vocabulary you want to share?
Also, if anyone knows where my counter went on my blog -- please share... it just disappeared this afternoon... anyone know if it is just playing hide-n-seek; or if it has truly gone AWOL and will not be returning.

A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
