Here is my list of
My Memories From 2008
~A Good Book I Read~
A Bend In The Road: Experiencing God When Your World Caves In
by David Jeremiah
Book Description: Drawing on his insightful sermon series, renowned pastor/teacher David Jeremiah shares the comfort and hope of the Psalms and how these truths can guide believer's through life's greatest challenges. He includes inspiring real-life stories of people who have struggled with terminal illness, the loss of a child, or imprisonment of a spouse. Jeremiah interweaves his own journal entries, revealing his battle with cancer and how the Psalms helped to sustain him during the fight of his life. A Bend in the Road is an invaluable source of help and encouragement for people facing major obstacles in life.
~A Great Film/Movie I Watched~ I don't watch very many movies but I did receive from my daughter Jill, a Chris Tomlin DVD called see the morning. It included A Talk from Louie Giglio titled How Great is Our God.
It is awe inspiring!
You can watch it on YouTube. The first part is almost ten minutes long but more than worth your time watching it.
You Will Be Amazed by...
How Great is Our God
~ A New Place I Visited~
York PA. I discovered through my genealogy research that my paternal ancestors lived here for many generations.
~ An Inspiring Verse or Quote I Read ~
It is not under the sharpest, but the longest trials, that we are most in danger of fainting.
~ A Discovery I Made ~
After much searching, we discovered at the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Germantown, PA, a journal listing the 1856 marriage record of Johann and Catherina H. This single entry, copied by the pastor who officiated the marriage, included the town (Leutkirch im Allgau Germany) in Germany where the couple were born. Knowing this town/village now opens the door to research across the ocean.
~ A New Skill I Acquired ~
How to make folded German Paper Stars (also called Moravian Stars)
~ A Lesson Learned ~
