It would have been nice to have a bite but... No!
Now, HONESTLY... do you think I could pass this one up. Walking down the posh streets of Vienna - and then coming across this work crew - right in front of Cartier!
AHHHH!!!! Back in my home area. It is just a bit quieter here :-)
Hungary for a week. Vienna for a few hours. Home looks good.

Intern Soren ushering in his 18th birthday with a tomato/mozzeralla cake??????? Later we continue to celebrate this day with with a Country and Western concert. Thanks to John and Martine.
"Whatever we do, even if we are reading the Word or praying we should stop for a few minutes - as often as possible - to praise God from the depths of our hearts, to enjoy Him there in secret. Since we believe that God is always with us, no matter what we may be doing, why shouldn't we stop for awhile to adore Him, to priase Him to petition Him, to offer Him our hearts, and to thank Him?
What could please God more than for us to leave the cares of the world temporarily in order to worship Him in our spirits? These momentary retreats serve to free us from our selfishness, which can only exist in the world. In short, we cannot show our loyalty to God more than by renouncing our worldly selves as much as a thousand times a day to enjoy even a single moment with Him.
This doesn't mean we must ignore the duties of our world forever; that would be impossible. Let prudence be our guide. However, I do believe that it is a common mistake of Spirit-filled people not to leave the cares of the world periodically to praise God in their spirits and to rest in the peace of His divine presence for a few moments." the practice of the presence OF GOD
I am praising God today:
- As I clean my house in preparation for 2 women that come and stay with me for several days after Annual Conference
- As I wash clothes for said Annual Conference
- As I eat a ham and cheese toast with fresh Baurn Brot
- As I prepare for an evening BBQ with my heart friend and her family - to study German, play our harps together, eat great food, laugh, and cry... and PRAY!!!!!!!
even in this day filled with the mundane tasks of preparations for a trip
My God lives. He IS.
Because He IS the I AM, the immutable
your mutating missionary...........mutating - mutating - mutating - mutating... and you dear friend?????
