Hebrew time at the library

This week started at the library until midnight Sunday, concentrating on wrapping up the second semester of Hebrew. Some things that happened last week were:

  1. a high school orchestra concert,
  2. the cutting of 32 crosstie timbers into 64 4’ sections (with a lot of help from Clark),
  3. the Christmas decorations in the house have made an appearance,
  4. and a trip to see the Cameron Park Christmas lights (after picking up some furniture for my daughter).

Family

We had a great Thanksgiving, seeing family and spending time together. This was our first year with a married child in the mix, and it was great. We were finally all together on Sunday, and took a family photo after church in the morning, and before half the people in the picture had to head back to Lubbock.

Brothers

It was also a great Thanksgiving with my siblings.

Wasted Years Restored

Dec 06, 2021

Are you familiar with the song “Bring Christ Your Broken Life?” The words of its first verse go like this:

Bring Christ your broken life
So marred by sin.
He will create anew,
Make whole again.

But, what are we to make of the following stanza?

Your empty wasted years
