Thanksgiving is tomorrow and we are getting together with my moms family. It is always a ton of fun with all of them. We end up laughing so hard that our sides hurt! I am hoping that mom will feel better - right now she is not feeling well at all and I am just praying that it is just something that she ate (like when we were at the Shack) and that by tomorrow she will be back to normal. We have so much to be thankful for and most of the time we take it for granted. I am thankful for: my family, my church, a house with a roof and warmth, clothes, technology - especially in the health care field, and most of all Jesus. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Cool website

Hey - Andy found this website, well it actually comes up in a windows media player but anyway, and it is really cool. It is a camera focused on a water hole in Africa and you can watch animals come up to it and stuff.

I hope that this will work and that you like it!

Update III

I found out when I got home from school tonight that my co-worker Roxanne passed away this morning at her sons house in Big Rapids. I am very sad that she has died, but I am also happy for her because now she is not in pain anymore and she has hopefully gone on to a better place. Please continue to pray for her husband and her son and grandson. Thank you for all your prayers during this difficult time.

Sorry that I have not posted in a while. I have not had much going on lately. My life is kind of boring lately. Have a wonderful day!!

Hey - I just wanted to give you an update on my coworker Roxanne. I heard last week Thursday, (sorry it took so long for me to update you!), that they have stopped the chemo and radiation and also the physical therapy because it was not working. They have given her two weeks to live. My boss and another coworker Ruth went to visit her and said that she knew who they were, but she is really confused. They also said that her husband needs a lot of prayers. they said that she will not let him out of the room. Please continue to pray for her and her family.

Also I wanted to let you know that I did not end up talking in my class about the exhibit because my prof. forgot. I will see if he remembers on Wednesday, but I don't think that he will. Professors have a way of doing that - they tell you something, but end up forgetting what they told you! Thanks for all the prayers though! I really appreciate it!

I am getting a little iritated with this blog program. I have tried again tonight to post my pictures, but alas it would not work again. I don't know what the problem is.

So I went after class today to talk to my Western Civilizations professor about the from Abraham to Jesus exhibit. I wan't to know if he had been to it because all the stuff they had there was stuff that we had talked about in class at one point or another. They had coins from the Roman period, a ton of jars and pottery from many different periods including the Roman, Greek, Egyptian, and the period in history when the ancient Hebrews were nomadic. When I asked him he said that he had not been to it, and wondered how it was. I told him that it was awesome and amazing. I said that I thought that it was a great exhibit. He said that he was going to try to get tickets for a cheaper price for our class to go, but I don't know if he will since it gets done on Nov. 4! He then said that after our test on Monday he will give me a little bit of time to talk to the class about the exhibit. We all know how I feel about talking in front of a group of people, especially in a class! Please pray for me on Monday at about 2:00pm. I am praying that God will give me the words to say to the class about the exhibit and why it is important. And please also pray for the other students in the class as most of them are not Christians, or at least don't want the rest of us in the class to know that they are. Pray that God will open their minds and hearts to what he has to say through me. Thank you for all your prayers and have a wonderful day!
