Well, it has been nearly a week since we returned home to normal living instead of enjoying the tropical haven of Kauai.  It has been a week of adjustment and not wanting to think that this is real life, but also being grateful for the wonderful time we did spend together with Dwight and Joanne in Hawaii.  The sun has been shining this week, with the promise of snow for this coming Tuesday.

It looks like I will be employed for a few weeks prior to Christmas with the Salvation Army having the task of matching people who are needing Christmas hampers with those families and organizations that would like to provide one at this Christmas Season.  This will be something entirely new for me, but am looking forward to working together with a team of people and in an area that I have not been involved with.  It will be stretching, I am sure, but I believe will also be good for me.

Not much else on this front.  We are starting a new book at our Small Group entitled Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell.  It is one of my favorite books so was so good to start re-reading it again.  Will also be doing a book study with some women on “Women Food and God” by Geneen Roth.  I am sure there will be some good discussions out of this book.  Also just finished reading the book “Mennonite in a Little Black Dress” by Rhoda Janzen.  It was amazingly hilarious but also well written and respectfully written.  Enjoyed it thoroughly.  Now back to life in Saskatchebush!!!
