Q: Why do we lift our hands?

More than fifty times in the Psalms the word Towdah or Yadah is translated “praise” which means to extend the hands in praise. The raising of hands is done to express adoration and worship to God, and is also a sign of surrender to His will.

Reference: Psalm 63:4 :: 1 Timothy 2:8

The kids have started Vacation Bible School and so far they are really enjoying it. They get to go to the one at our church and to another one in July at our chapel. They are both different programs so they won't be getting the same thing over. I am glad they have this to do for the summer. Other then that it has mostly been the pool. What are you all up to this summer?

I can only imagine what the new Dallas Cowobys stadium in Arlington is like. I found this video of their LCD tv which is apparently bigger then 4 tennis courts. I hope some day to see this myself.

Died in Service

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Johnny standing in the foyer of the church, looking at a large plaque that hung there.

After the young man of seven had stood there for some time, the pastor walked up beside him and said quietly, "Good morning, son."

"Good morning, Pastor," replied the youngster, not taking his eyes off the plaque. "Can I ask you, Sir, why are all these names listed on here?"

"Well, son, these are all the people who have died in the service," replied the pastor. Soberly, they stood together, staring up at the large plaque.

Little Johnny's voice barely broke the silence when he asked quietly, "Which one, Sir, the 8:30 or the 10?

A little of this and a little of that

Vanessa is doing well and learning to live with her shunt. She has had many appointments. So far so good. While she was staying with my friends in San Diego she was lucky that my friends dad was staying too. He had done many missions and gone places similar to where Vanessa has gone on missions so they have a lot in common. I think it was great that she got spend time with an adult who has taken missions seriously like she does.

Today is Darrian's Kindergarten graduation at 8:30 am and then he is having a class party. After this I have an ENT appt. I have had some ear trouble in recent years and my doctor has referred me up here finally. So I will be gone all day just as I have been gone all day most of the week.

My daughter is going to do much volunteer work at our church this summer and we may be doing some together so it looks like the summer got even busier.

Me and a few of my friends are going to join another Bible study so that should be fun. It never hurts to have these groups in abundance. I think one is going to be on Beth Moore's Esther Bible study. This one I have heard from many of you in blogland is an awesome study.

On top of all this I have 2 kids starting pre football work and one kid sailing and bowling lessons. Also the two boys are going to camp defy which is like a Dare program for the summer.

Back to school by July 31.
