Bible Bee and Thanksgiving ~

        First off was the Bible Bee... wow supposedly there was upwards 10,000 people there and 300 contestants, 75 speakers, 56 vendors, and tons and tons of kids!!!!!  A group of us from HQ were able to go down and help staff this conference... except me. I finished my 10th and hopefully final conference/convention of the year, doing book-sales. woop woop! I don't even really want to know how many miles of travel and all that. All I know is that God has been faithful through it all. The Bible bee was an awesome experience though, look it up online to get some of the stats and see who won this years competition.  ;)

        Secondly we had thanksgiving in Indiana, it was also a family reunion. Despite my preconceived notions of how this years reunion was going to go, it went very well and .... yeah it went better than last year and that's a good thing. lol God has not only shown himself faithful but also merciful to me through this past year and for this alone I am very grateful. Here are some hodge podge pics of these two events.... God bless you all and here is a verse that continues to run through my head;

Isa 41:10  "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."

ok... I did fail to mention that we went to the Opry Land Hotel... that was quite the adventure...  ;p

Our Family Reunion.... lots of kids, food and fellowship.
