|Pretty photogenic right?|
|This is a High tech machine!|
Yesterday after church we drove to Wisconsin to look at the Mississippi. There is a park bench down there that we happened upon about 18 months ago that we believe had a message from God to us. We have looked but have never been able to find again. (See blog from 10/9/2011) Anyway, this time we managed to find it. The writing on the bench was faded but still legible. It says;
"It's okay to have bad day's, hold on, be strong"
Still good advice 18 months later.
This blog started out as a way to keep people who were worried up to date about my treatments. I hope that it has served that purpose well. Like many things it has grown into something somewhat unexpected. Unless you leave a comment I don't really know who is looking at this blog. I can, however, see maps of where it is being looked at. It is something that I don't fully comprehend. Most of the views are from the United States, that isn't surprising. What does surprise me is the number of people who are following from countries all over the world. From what I see I am approaching nearly 70,000 views. Many of those viewing are from Russia, Canada, Latvia, China, Germany, Spain, Denmark etc... I have traveled to many of your countries providing humanitarian service as a dentist. Perhaps some of you are following for that reason. Perhaps some of you are people I have never met. For whatever reason, I am happy to have you follow along. I hope that my experiences have in some way helped you to meet your own challenges in life. The prevailing message that I hope my blog conveys is to live with hope. For me that hope largely comes from my faith in God and from the faith and love of others who surround me.
|The shag carpet car.|
Okay, here is the random thing we saw on Saturday. We made a wrong turn and came upon the most lovely car I have seen in a while. I'm not sure why someone would do this but it is unique. The car is completely covered in shag carpet and then has a few bones glued on to make it extra special. The question is: Would you wash your car or vacuum it?
