Favorite Things

I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I am using this year to help me study God's word.

The first being the Scripture Reading Plan I am using provided by the Journey church. I like it because if you get behind it is easy to get caught up. :)

The second is what I am using to help me memorize verses. I have always wanted to memorize Philippians and shared that desire with my husband. He directed me to this site which has a VERY helpful guide to memorizing Philippians!

Day 10 - Only Within Walking Distance

Today we walked everywhere we went since Dad had the car with him. It was a nice relaxing day. I spent the early evening hours packing our bags. I still have a little more to do before I go to bed. We will be leaving on the 8:00am train to go to Helsinki tomorrow. We will stay in Helsinki through Sunday night and then fly out early Monday morning to head back to the states! I will try to post while we are in Helsinki if I have internet access. If not I'll post pics from Helsinki after we get home. Please pray for us...we are flying through Heahthrow Airport in London, you may know they opened a new terminal last week and have tons of luggage sitting there. Please pray that we will make it to Raleigh with ALL of our things!!!

EG leaned up all on her own to pose for this pic!

This is how we put the car through the car wash...we don't push it through...we pick it up and shove it. Didn't you know that?


Why the red face??? Not lipstick or makeup but...

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

Below are some pics of the bathroom...only b/c it is different and reminds me of China in some ways.
Washer and Dryer (in China these are kept outside on the porch)



sink and toilet (in china they are MUCH closer)

toilet and shower (at least you can separate the area with a shower curtain...in China everything gets wet)

door to the sauna...nice!

The toilet flusher.

If you do a little do, you push the little drop (right side)

If you do a big doo, you push the big drop (left side)

Makes you think everytime you use the bathroom.

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

Now we are in the kitchen...and I think this is the coolest thing.

Notice, cabinets above the sink...like normal...maybe a little lower than at home.

Open the cabinets and you have a dish drainer...the dishes drain right into the sink.

It is so nice not having a big 'ole dish drain on your countertop. I think this is a great idea that the Fin's had!

Up close and personal with the dish drain.

is the kitchen not in the same room as the toilet? Why not.

What are you going to do in Helsinki and how far away is that from your Mom's? Well I will be praying for you.
