Catching Up: Part II

October 28, 2003



Monday the 20th: I thought I would spend a nice, quiet day at home, doing nothing but relaxing. After all, if you take “working all day” and subtract “working”, you get “all day” don’t you? The answer is no. Our bathrooms are being remodeled right now, which means there are workers tromping in and out, taking a saws-all to parts of the house. A stressful day.

Tuesday: The workers didn’t show. My first relaxing day. My only empty day.

Wednesday: The iMac shows up — woo-hoo! Working on one is quite different from seeing a picture of it. You don’t see much of the ball because the display is floating in front of it — and I mean floating. Kay said, “It looks like a floating picture frame.”

Our group gathering deserves a separate entry. But in case I don’t get to it… We pondered the question, “What is the gospel?”

Thursday: Our family went on a Cub Scout outing to visit the San Jose Mounted Police.

Friday: I went on the kindergarten field trip with Erin. Saw parts of a grocery store I’ve never seen before. We shared a picnic lunch together. Back at school, I got to see Kay at her job, lunch duty. It is controlled chaos, and Kay is quite good at it.

Saturday: Neighborhood pumpkin carving party.

Sunday: October is Pastor Appreciation Month. Mike, Teddy and I walked into the worship service as Pooh, Barney and Elmo, hijacking the gathering from our unsuspecting pastor. Instead of preaching, he sat as people took turns sharing their thanks. Saw him laugh, saw him cry — a good morning. In the afternoon, we went to another pumpkin carving party.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. See Jon, look at all that stuff that you normally wouldn’t have been able to do? Consider an authorized vacation from God. ;^)
    Still, seriously, I’m glad that you are taking this so well and I am still praying for your new job though.

  2. yeah jon. I am once again jealous you are having alot of fun. Did you catch anymore spongebob ? Well enjoy your new mac, as they are the annointed of the kingdom.

  3. What is the Gospel? Probably the most important question we can ask right now.
