Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

I was thinking I should check in...

but not much has been going on the past few days. We did go for a drive Tuesday. We went through Bishop, CA to Lone Pine where there is a place called Alabama Hills. A lot of old westerns were filmed here. We should have stopped at the visitor's center in Lone Pine and got better maps of where different movies were filmed, I just had a map form the internet. It was pretty cool though. I'll try to get some pic's up in a couple of days.

We then drove to Death Valley, got to the bottom at sunset, that was pretty cool, but we drove out the other side into Beatty in the dark. It was nice to get out of town although I don't think the kids were real excited about getting out of bed on their day off from school.

Other than that we haven't been doing much. Just trying to get stuff done around here. We're having a work day tomorrow, if anyone shows. We discovered some roof leaks in the church last Sunday when we had our sloppy snow/rain. It rained, then snowed for a little bit, then turned back to rain and was nice and sunny by the afternoon! Life in the desert:)

Anyway, Butch will be replacing screws in the roof tomorrow and we have a room that we need to clean out in the Annex beacause our food pantry just got a bunch of food donated and we have no place to put it. We're going to turn one of the storage rooms into the food pantry.

So, at least this week, it has been a quiet life. Trying to get lots of scrapping done while I can:)
