|Ahh blogger's block.......How I despise thee!
Today we had a wedding shower/party for Dawn, one of our YWAM staff who recently got married. It was really a very nice party. It was good to see everyone again, whom I rarely see now that I don't work at the office, and there really isn't much of an office anyway. And it was GREAT to see Steener, who by the way, is nearly half her physical self these days as she looks AMAZINGLY thin...way to go steener, you are an inspiration to my post-marriage-heavy self!
I just realized I never posted pics from our camping trip last weekend. It was really nice....a little cold at night, but a great time. Here's some pics from the first 3 hours of our trip, as the camera batteries ran out right while we were still exploring the site... dem's da breaks I guess.
I forgot to mention... i had another JW (Jehovah's Witness) come to my door this morning. This brief encounter with "Caroline" (I think) left me feeling 'icky' all day...I just couldn't shake it. I hate how I feel powerless when they come - like all of the sudden I forget how to stand up for myself. They are so determined and so trained as to anything a person could say to them - especially a christian. I just spent the past half hour researching other people's advice as to how to respond to a JW when they start quoting scripture out of context at you. Most believe that it's not worth debating, as it will not get you anywhere. They are on a mission - they truly believe that unless they are able to go around converting people, they will not go to heaven. They do not believe we are saved by Grace.... so, they don't care if they are offending you, or making you feel uncomfortable. Maybe next time I'll just say "No Thanks" and shut the door....? What do you think?
