Random pictures in Wales...

Alan was very happy to see this telephone booth... you couldn't tell we were
americans at all :)

Seriously, if there's a used book store within a 10 mile radius Cathy will sniff it out.

This is the pub where C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkin used to meet for a
writing club called inklings. We sat in the LITTLE room that they did.

This is the coffee shop the Bethel ownes.

Just a random path...or is it?
Well, I think thats the end of my blogs about Wales for now. We had a
good trip. I think I am still processing all of it.
I am sleepy...jetlag stinks...

Photoshop is wonderful...

Hello, I have a new found love. It's photoshop (Thanks to Hallie). I am not going to photoshop all of my pictures but I love playing around with all the effects. Here are two pics from easter that I did some photoshop goodness to. :)

So here we are in Tredegar, Wales. Tredegar by the way is pronounced tre-dee-gah, just in case you were wondering. We have had a great trip so far. One lesson we've already learned is can't really trust a GPS. Everyone so far has been super nice and the first full day here was great. Here's a couple pics.

Disneylad with the Jackson's!

Why hello, it maybe a little while before I can blog again. We are going

to be super busy... not that I blog all that much anyways...oppps :) We went with David and Rachel to Disneyland. It was super fun, here are just a couple of pics. We did a lot of laughing...
Alan spoke today in staff chapel, he did such an amazing job. I get to hear my wonderful hubby every week, and he's always great and it always encourages (and convicts) me. But today he had an extra measure of the Holy Spirit today or somethin. It was awesome! He'll be giving the same(ish) sermon on April 27th at Sunday night church and EVERYONE should come. I may be biased but he was for sure amazing today, and you should come hear some of that greatness! I know, I know it wasn't Alan smartness or cleverness (although he has both of those qualities) that made that sermon great it was the LORD using Alan and that was totally evident. It only makes me more excited to see what the LORD does with my hubby.
"Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You. I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands." Psalm 63:3-4
The LORD has been good to me and He deserves more glory than I can ever possiably give Him.
