Reformation Day!

Many years ago today, a courageous monk nailed 95 Theses upon the door of a Wittenburg church -- and God started a reformation... How grateful we are for the work which God wrought through His servant, Martin Luther!
(A little more recently in history on this same day, a boy named Andrew was born in the Wahlquist household... we are thanking God for him, too!)

Deborah's Birthday!

The early-morning light touches the treetops...  Autumn color!  Our road...  Lovely to have water in our pond again (or, should that be, "lovely to have a pond again"?)! Deborah, making her own birthday dessert!  Presents for a special girl...

 Fun new shoes -- a bday gift!  Reading a card from Daddy ( he always does such fun front art!) :)  A very difficult present to unwrap (but rewarding in the end!) :)

 And -- a Browning hoodie! :) She was very delighted! This morning, a low-lying bank of (can I call it fog?) that swept rapidly overhead this morning... :)

Happy Birthday, Deborah!

Hop over to Deborah's blog! :)


On Sunday, the E's attended church with us, leaving for SA after the fellowship meal. What a fun weekend!  We had to take more than one vehicle -- here's some of us, on our way to church!
 The fellowship of the saints is such a blessing!  Little boys... :)  After the meal, the E's had to leave... :(  We babysat Kathryn that afternoon! :)

Saturday -- Part 2

South African penguins!

 Lush  Watching a diver feed the fish!
 The shark tunnel!
 :)  Sea horse :)

 Metallic!  Hogfish -- really weird looking, and maybe a foot & a half long!  The jaguar exhibit -- the man is real ;)  Another person, dressed up like a Mayan for a presentation they were doing ;)
 Looking down on the shark tunnel!  Harpy eagle
 Benches are nice!  Jaguar -- wish we could've seen him closer!
