Sharon Lynne News

The Home Front

My youngest, recently bought a game system with his own money. He won't let the oldest play unless the oldest treats him with respect. They've been squabbling all week. It's interesting to watch. I've never seen the older one submit to the younger one. (and I'm seeing it.)

We are purchasing some property in another state, and it hasn't been easy. We are closing this week or next...emails, notaries, lenders, interest rates, escrow, insurance, taxes, etc., etc. has been keeping our minds busy.

I'm still reading the Bible to my family at dinner.

Neighbors

I wave to my neighbor Ben when I see him. He is gone a lot. This is good—as I think he must have a regular job.

Yesterday, very early in the morning I crossed paths with another neighbor. He doesn't speak English very well. I said, "Have a nice day." He smiled wide. The next morning as I was climbing into my car I heard his voice coming over the wall, "Have a nice day."

A couple of days ago I went to a store to buy a belt. Outside an old homeless woman was eating out of trash can. How can I buy a belt when someone else can't even buy food? I bought her a meal...and told her God cared about her. This is not something I normally do...but God is showing me what he would do. (and I did buy the belt)

My Job

Working with children is always rewarding!

My Writing

Can't seem to get myself motivated to re-write 2 articles that I need to send out. Daily life is too strenuous on my brain at the moment.

Adventure

I'm going to see the Dead Sea Scrolls on Saturday! I'm picking up a girlfriend and drivng to San Diego. I'll bring my camera and tell you all about it! Here is a link to an article I wrote: Dead Sea Scrolls

Sharon,
Praying for your homefront, and grinning at the twist in your boys' relationship :)
Hope the property purchase goes well...we just bought a rental property and our first renters move in this week!
You are an inspiration in your answer to God's call in your relationships with others (neighbors and strangers). Thank you for sharing your blessings with us.
And, I am really impressed that you have an article coming out! And, I will be praying for time, energy and divine guidance as you rewrite your other articles.
Can't wait to hear about the Dead Sea Scrolls!!!
Blessings to you this day,
Michelle

The older will serve the younger.....sounds a bit familiar. :-)

Things may be on the upswing here; please keep praying for my prodigal.

Can't wait to hear about the purchase.

Sounds like life keeps you busy, amused, content & blessed! Thanks for the glimpse!

Looking forward to hearing about the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Sorry I have been absentee in the blog world this month. My mind has been all tied up & I can't seem to release it into blogging often. A prayer for my patience & faith that God is in control for me if you please!

I am so far behind in visiting my friends this week! Love this update, and your listening to the Lord with regard to strangers and neighbors!

My brother in England did his Ph.D. on the intertestamental perior and is a highly in demand speaker on the Dead Sea Scrolls. You would love to meet him! His link is on my sidebar as "The Occasional" under the family sites.

It's funny how one sibling will all of a sudden be nice to the other when there is something wanted by sibling #1 from sibling #2.
